      Lolol Yeah, I know, but I'd love to see it in there. lolol I'm doing the same, into a '69 fastback. I've had a couple of Gen3s mocked up in mine (I kept upgrading before ever getting the car running) so I know my Hellcrate will slide right in. However, there will be a slight problem with the intercooler water manifold on the back of the SC. You can modify your firewall or, there are a couple of aftermarket alternatives available. I bought one of the aftermarket ones that looks like it will work fine.

      I had already spent a lot of time cleaning up my fire wall for the previous Gen3s and I don't want to do any more work to it for the stock water manifold.

        Started on the dash while I'm awaiting some suspension parts. I gutted the original.

          Also cut the fire wall for mods and test fit engine and trans.

          It fits but I'll need to open up the front a bit for the massive radiator I plan on running.

              Test fitted the Northern radiator. It's over 9" thick! I need to notch the frame rails and cut out the front support to gain more clearance.

                  Bolted in engine again to check clearance. It fits!

                      9" THICK???? What's it out of, a Peterbuilt or Freightliner? Wow. What about your heat exchanger for the blower? Is it two radiators in one?

                          The whole assembly is 9" thick. Radiator, fan and shroud. Custom unit from Northern. They are awesome to deal with.

                              So will you be mounting a big heat exchanger for the blower in front of the radiator?

                                  Can't wait to see how this turns out! I wouldn't want to modify my car that much at this point because I have so much blood, sweat and beers into it already... but I sure can enjoy watching you do it to yours!
                                  Love those Notches!
