Has any one else had to beat the frame in or modify the lower cotrol arm bracket on the RH side to get a set of schoenfelds to fit?we had a **** of time, motor in stock loc. Is it any better when setback?? And how much better do the dyna tech's fit? Thanks Alot Josh K.

i run the schoenfeld 186s and have no problems with them. if you pound the firewall back enough you can take the motor out with the headers still on.

CSK carries Flow Tech headers they run about $84.99 have had good luck with them make sure you use loctite on the bolts so that they dont loosen up from the vibration. Eddie

I just bought some flow tech afterburners and the look good on the engine stand, the starter has lots of clearence. I haven't put the motor in yet but i expect them to fit really well. My car is a 78 monte carlo.

schon.. we'll find out which has better off corner response this year

i'd be careful on the dynatechs...their quality has gone downhill. they are no better than schoenfeld...just alot more expensive. i have a bunch of buddies that got turned on to dynatechs...all have schoenfelds now.

I use Schonfelds with a 2" setback and rear engine mounts and they fit fine.

I had to dent my sconfields by the lower a-frame mounts, They did not seal very well either, I had to use two gaskets.

afterburners will clear those mounts in most cases
