I actually did not think about that . I guess before I take that step of taking my engine out I would like to ask this question , where your headers extremely close to the frame and starter ? I don't know if this matters much but I a running a high torque mini starter and I don't know if there is different dimensions as apposed to a stock starter . Also I like to say that I know what you mean on the tranny crossmember I had to do the same thing because I am running a tci street fighter 400 . Also I would like to ask what kind of gauges did you use ? As far as the wires go I only want to keep gauges and possibly anything for ac and heat. I got little ones that plan to ride in daddy's car . I greatly appreciate all the replies .
