Test fitting the 231doubler/d300:

The red arrow shows how much room I have to make the crossmember below the transmission:
The exhaust is right up against the floor right now. I'll try to put a little bend further up the header to get it down a little and then use header wrap to cut down on heat more.
The money shot. Nothing below the bottom of the frame.
