            I really hope that I get an opportunity to see that beautiful badass Dart in person when it's done.

                      Stalled on forward progress - lack of parts, or they are enroute. But it's coming together, still have a date in July I'm aiming for....

                        How did those TTI headers fit?

                        Gonna have to give them one ding up by the top of steering box, or put about a 1/8-3/16 shim on the motor mount, or I could take the box off and shave a bit off of it. But overall, really good fit. Love TTI's.

                        @ns1rm21 did the motor and trans measurement and placement in his Hemi Dart. Then let TTI borrow the whole car to create the first ones.

                          Hello. I would not ding the header. Your better off shimming the mount. Dings always look bad and there rarely are clean looking when done. If you go by the measurements on the TTI website they should fit like a glove. 38E876AF-FD0D-4EEA-A631-3BB0805A5455.png D6D461F8-4D60-4263-B944-50BA397DE51F.png

                            Here is a picture of my 528 that is going in my Barracuda. Maybe you can blow up this photo and see what clearances I have with the engine sitting in the locations that are posted above. 45BBBB74-FEB4-46FD-9CE1-DFD6B9200C1B.jpeg

                              Those were just my immediate thoughts. I will try and figure out why the headers are touching the steering box first. Like they say, a 1/4 inch in an A body Mopar is like a mile.

                                It's just sitting there but I couldn't resist seeing what it would look like. Still have much to do on the Sniper system, but it looks just like I thought it should.

                                  I can't remember if it was the TTI site or the Borgeson site, but one of them mentions elongating the holes in the steering box to allow it to be moved away from the block to give more clearance. IIRC, the new hole goes to .81 inside.
