    Well I was going to try and keep factory back seat but just didn't work out . Sticking with just a roll bar since it won't see much track time and didn't want to worry about full cage driving around town 30-M.jpg

      (Xs-9513x powermaster) I could not clear an older 5.2 /5.9 mini starter and did not want to try and pull headers off so went this route . made a new (pics show ones that comes with starter)adapter so I could spin the solenoid to clear the header . I did have to remove the 2 big bolt boss on the block but running a 4l80e so no block to trans adapter

          I’d be interested to see your 4l80 mods. Floor pan and mount... looks like you’re doing the Reid bell with it?
