Any day now. They're on our shelves and just waiting for the Product Manager to finish the product release and send it out for them to become available.

That is great to hear. I have been waiting on it to get started on putting together my project.

How much different is the sn95 exhaust kit compared to the foxbody one? Should be similar in placement.

They are completely different in both bend geometry and hanger configuration. The biggest difference in the bend geometry is in the inlet pipes of the two systems and the X pipe assemblies, which is due to the transmission crossmember receiver brackets being different between the two applications.

I know this is an LS topic but do you offer motor mounts to mate a 1st gen sbc to the stock foxbody k-member? Would I be able to use these mounts with a clamshell type motor mount like the LS uses?

No we don't. The SB Chevy block was mounted in GM cars with either the old-school three bolts mounts that bolted directly to the block and sat on frame stands in the chassis, or the stamped engine brackets that sat on the original clamshell mounts that were attached to the chassis.

No it doesn't, it bolts onto the insides of the frame box rails and you have to drill a couple of holes to enable that. If your car has subframe connectors that encroach into that area you make have to do some prep work to remove any material that will interfere with the mounting feet of the crossmember. They were put up on the Holley website and made available yesterday, I will post some press release info in this thread later this morning.

How is the clearance to the tie rods with the 302-1 pan using the rear stock location brackets? I'm switching to a stroker and would rather run the 302-1 pan than the 302-3

It sounds as though you are asking in regards to the GM A-Body swap application. If so, the 302-1 pan is not installable with the Hooker Blackheart engine brackets due to its depth being too deep along its front half.

Thanks, that's exactly what I needed to know.
