    Finally got it rolling. Lots of research and lots of help from Don at DA34guy to get to this point. Definitely a cool moment being able to roll this thing outside for a picture.

    Whats your plan for exhaust routing?? Stock LT1 routing has left side pipe from manifold going under oil pan to join right side which does leave you space on left side frame for master cylinder, etc--------

    I will leave the exhaust routing to the exhaust shop. Should be room to run dual exhaust pipe thru out frame cross member to the rear.

    With the Ford 8.8 having a 4 inch pinion offset--------will you have good clearance in that hoop?? Picture angle probably making it look ??????
    and can you easily lengthen the cross link on the rear end???????

    Pinion off set is 2” from center. As long as Trans and rearend drive line angles are parallel to each other and never intersect then you won’t have issues. U joints will do there job. A lot of vehicles are off set from the factory to clear gas tanks and other stuff. Not uncommon to see on vehicles today.

    I’m assuming you are referring to the pan hard bar on the rearend. I could of ran it to the other side to lengthen but decided not to. Panhard bar is almost 20” long and no more than 1.5” drop from mounts. Most panhard bars I have research recommends 20” bar with no more than 2” drop over the length of the bar.
