"As the steering box gets in the way."

Of course it'll make it tougher to fit passenger side exhaust, but you can move the motor/trans to the passenger side slightly to get some clearance if you need to, just be careful about keeping the centerline of the crank parallel with the centerline of the car to prevent u-joint problems.

On a 302 Ford / 83 Mitsubishi truck swap i did, I moved the motor-trans to the passenger side of the truck 2 1/4" to clear the box.
