Only mod required for installation is enlarging the hole for the upper end of the front shocks to .750".

Melrose LSx swap headers, which I bought un-coated nervous about the fit, but they fit great. My LS is located 11/16 forward of the original SBC bell housing position but clearance doesn't look to be an issue even assuming an inch or so either direction.

I had these pics but if you want something with greater detail let me know.

Thanks for the pics, got me to thinking!
