Default What bellhousing do I need?

Im just sold my stock bellhousing and I need a stronger aftermarket one. Im going to be running a 408 with nitrous and a t56. Its also going to have a monster clutch. I need something thats stronger and will cover track safety requirements, and fits perfectly without any modification. the mcleod looks like a POS and doesnt fit well. what else is there? QTP?

Well, I have the Mcleod, and love it, as it fits like a glove, and is SFI.

hmm, I have heard the mcleod requires alot of cutting in order to get it to fit.

It does need some grinding on the back of the block near the oil pan to allow the block plate to sit flush up against the block. The nose of the starter may also need a little attention but nothing to crazy. Other than that it should be straight forward.

I love my quick time one, and its lighter than the Mcleod.... Which for me was important. And it went on like a stocker.
