thanks, yeah its solid i'm going to drive it like that for a little while then paint it titanium silver and put the black back arounf the trim.so is it a 429 or 460ci. thats flying for a very simple setup ! yeah i bought the car in lower ga because i couldn't find a coupe around here. hoping to have it running this weekend and maybe driving and a couple of weeks.

what did you make the spacers out of?
a friend that has done a lot of bbf swaps gave them to me. they look like they were cut out of thick wall roll cage tubing 1.5" !

Do you have a pic of the brake booster vs. valve cover area?
well the clearance is that there is none, i have the stock 4 cyl booster that is the pan cake one and it is kissing the valve cover, i'm looking for a v8 booster as of right now. it will not clear with out the 1.5" spacers and stock 4cyl booster.

I have the same booster in my 83 and do have 1.5" spacers. Just about ready to mock the motor up in it. I was hoping it would clear with the spacers installed.

well mines kissing it and theres no way you could remove the valve cover ! i also don't have the k member installed so it may be worse, i just have it jacked up close right now !

that is the factory oil cooler from a 93 f350 that came on the motor i just cleaned it up and reused it. just one of my ways of trying to keep this thing cool ! i also have a factory c6 trans cooler from an older ambulance i'm going to use. i painted it silver and added the summit sticker. haha
