When I get to the shop tomorrow yes I can, I didn’t touch the heater box or anything had to modify the drivers side firewall a bit for my headers to fit, I used regular stock gm motor mounts from advance and then I bought summit racing sbc old school clamshells ( that were expensive as hell and for word of advice how we modified the cross member we took it off the vehicle cut the piece off that bolts to the trans, turned it upside down and welded it and it bolted right up

It’s great no leaks part of it does hang off the end of the trans but that is just the thick part I had to use the old bung out of the truck pan to get the oil filter to screw on bc the one that came with the pan won’t work and jegs Does not list that filters to use I also am using a low profile small filter so if anybody looks under neath they just see a nice new pan and filter lol
