Can someone measure the distance between the frame rail and the exhaust port on their 454 4th gen swap.

also from the valve cover to the shock tower.

How close does the steering shaft come to the head?

itll fit. just need custom header work for the steering knuckle. you can set a complete motor less carb dist cap and headers straight thru the hood

i know it will fit, i'm trying to see if their is any way to make a set of forward facing turbo headers that will clear the shock towers.

You can do it but the turbo's will have to be mounted a little low. You can't come over the top like with an SBC.

Front and center or off to one side with an intercooler or what? Doesn't sound like it will be a problem then.
