Looks good. I'm curious,what headers are you using, did you have to use k member spacers to get the motor so low and are you running a mid plate? I'm starting to mock up my motor tomorrow and looking for any input I can get.

Yes I lowered the K-member 1 1/2", Im using the Hooker super comp headers, they fit very good with the UPR tubular K-memeber, My mid plate is a home made design, it ties into the frame rail like a normal mid plate (weld and bolt) would but it bolts to the ears of the C-6 instead of between the motor and trans, We did this with my brothers 66 fastback mustang and it works very well, runs mid 9's on motor with no issues
