Very nice, thoughtful installation, Dr. C. I like the oem Mustang II stuff too.

Default clearance issue??

Dr C In your last photo where the rectangular tube ties the strut brace to the cross member, did you check for clearance to dump the headers looks like it may want to share that space. If you already checked this great, then I will not interrupt the scheduled program in progress

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

We've been working with a pair of swept-back "shorties"... no issues up front, but some tight spots may force some "tough love" beatings downstream... or, their demise in favour of plan 17.

We got a few hours in yesterday...

Btard stripped the front suspension and we set the frame at ride height, which takes us back to where we were before discovering the MII problem... anyhow, we dropped the (bare) small block and 700R4 between the rails. We also laid the 8.8 rear (loose) on its saddles...

We centered the 8.8, set the pinion angle and tacked the saddles. We also set the trans angle and started building a cross member/support, but had to quit when we found ourselves lacking a certain metric nut for the stud mount.

So, Btard placed the heads and headers we're trying to use. They're tight and there's no gasket in the picture, but they'll work with some modification. (The driver side is worse in a different way... last time we had this stuff mocked up, we cut the collector off.)

Lot of heat concentrated there. Have you considered fenderwell headers?
