I have a 57 chev truck that I've just put a chrysler torsion ifs in. It's getting a sbc, 700r4, and an 8.8 rear end. The 8.8 has a 2" offset (approx.). I have to custom some frame mounts and a tranny crossmember. I was planning on offsetting the motor 1" to the ps anyway to prevent some clearance problems with headers and ps box and linkage. I need some good info on lining everything up, pinion angles etc.
