                    Me neither! You have no idea how badly I want that.

                        • Looks tight to the motor mount. The rest looks very workable. Any ideas on the air intake with the motor mount so close?

                            It is tight. Going to fab up a new engine mount on the block that will give me a stronger tie to the block and give me more for the elbow. Right now there is about 4" from the intake horn to the motor mount bolt. The above photo is a little deceiving.

                            It is just as tight on the exhaust size. :cool:

                            • That's not bad, it looks much worse. Some tight bends on mandrel bent pipe should be close and need minimal modifications. I am sure whatever you come up with will work well and look great in the end.

                              If you cut the factory mount off the frame and ran a couple tabs on the frame and a new block plate you could gain some serious room. That factory mount looks to be very high, lower it 4 or 5 inches and you have all the room you need.

                              What size is the inlet, 2 1/2"? Is that the outlet pipe on the exhaust side? Also doesn't look to large, shouldn't be to bad to work with.

                                thanks

                                yeah-- I was thinking the same thing. The motor mount also interferes, a hair, with the steering shaft. Two birds with one stone will be great.

                                The exhaust is 2.5 OD. The inlet is about the same. I know 3" OD tube fits right over it.

                                Fun fun!

                                I have to go with an external hydro clutch setup-- the OEM mechanical linkage is very much in the way. Ordered premium master & slave cylinders from Read NAPA this AM.
