    Hey just checking in here to see if anyone can help me out to show me what they did to reinforce their firewall where the pedal assembly mounts. I've heard that when you swap a big block in and put a heavy clutch behind it (McLeod), you need to reinforce the firewall where the pedals mount.

    Thanks!

    That's a new one to me- B/E bodies had reinforcements, but never heard of any need for them on As.
