Yes, I built the Pearson Talledega. Build up the engine block and transmission and temporarily attach the valve covers. Build up the firewall and crush panel in front of the dash board so that you can put the front hoop rails into it. next, glue the front hoop on with the engine in place while spreading the side rails (use crazy glue and excellerator). you will clear the valve covers without much fuss. I made my exhaust tubes with stripped aluminum romex electrical wire. be prepared to grind down those nice breathers on top of the engine and you will need to do some grinding on the bottom front of the engine along the oil pump/crank shaft areas. you best be pretty good with a Dremel tool to make this happen. Test fit like crazy. oh yeah, and you may need to grind down the top of the transmission gearbox a bit.

Excellent idea, I'll give it a try. Sure is aggravating that there aren't any proper engine mounts.

Thanks,

I haven't built this kit but can you work "backwards"? That is, mock up the rear end and drive shaft, install the engine/transmission onto the driveshaft, then center the engine in the bay and fabricate mounts to attach it where it ends up? Just a thought.

I just got a good deal on a Polar Lights Cyclone. Was wondering if anyone has some hints to get the 429 to sit correctly in the frame.

Thanks
