Woody,,, is it ok to run a motor plate on the street, I have a 90 Gt, that I am going to do the big block swap with, I already have a built C-4, built 8.8, frame connectors etc. Can I use my original steering rack?  What kind of headers will work with no problems, ( not Kooks) lol.  My build will be a little different from some people's as i am not interested in rotating the earth. My car will be used as a driver, but as a reliable weekend warrior, that I will run in our super-pro program at the track.  I only want to shift at around 5500 rpm., and my motor will be around 9 or 9.5-1 comp ratio. 466 cubes. I am looking to achieve about 500 H.P. @ the flywheel.  This should not be to difficult to do, correct.  First time poster here.
               Thanks in advance,  Dave... Ontario, Canada.

Jon well there are a few considerations, the c6 is tight fit with longtube headers, the brake booster is usually taken out in favor of manual brakes, which are not that bad at all. I have manual brakes, reason being is a tall valve cover will not fit. I run a motor plate. I also use a manual steering rack,a flaming river quick ratio. Tell me a little more about your plan and we can go from there Smiley

Hey Dave, I ran a plate on the street no problems. You can use the power steering rack if ya like, I always used a quick ratio manual, alot of guys are using the advance auto parts manual rack which is really cheap compared to flaming river, plus like 3 yr warranty. As for headers, D&D makes a mid length header thats good for street clearance, they also have longtubes. They are a great source to check for this stuff if you have not already. http://www.mspmall.com/ddautospec/index.html

A couple pics of my own long term BBF foxbody build.
545 stroker with TFS A's.
Front and rear motor plates, tubular K etc.
Going on three years now and I've made some progress since these were taken, would love to hit the track come spring.

Did you guys have to run a dropped K-member? I've heard that the mounts that come in most kits cause the engine to sit high and if you want it to sit lower you have to use a dropped K-member or install spacers under the member. If you run the motor plates do you have any problems with interference with the oil pan and K-member? I?m building a 88 coupe with a 501 BBF also it will be fun.

Blown, I haven't personally done the mount kit but I have a few friends who have and they do sit quite high. I've gone the front/rear plate route with the motor set back about 2" and the pan sitting on the "K". A guy who was handy at fabbing/welding could probably do a much better job on the mounts provided he had all the parts to mock it up properly.

Thanks JR, that car of yours looks nice and it will be a real beast when you get it done, I'm not going anywhere near that stout but I'm trying to decide if I'm going with motor plates or mounts, it?s only going to be a 501 with A429 heads and a solid street roller. I'm going with a C6 and  transbrake with only limited street duty and mostly bracket racing. I do want the engine to sit down a little bit so I don't have the 6" cowl hood.

there is no fabrication at all, heres a few pics of a perfect execution




How did they get it to sit that low without using a front and mid plate? I like the looks of that.
