I went with 8.5 inch backspacing on the front to get .375 inch of scrub (left a little to account for tire squirm under load), and everything cleared including the inner inside of the barrel (control arms, tie rod, sway bar, etc.) and the tire thru full suspension travel up to 30 degrees of turn. Whew. I've still got to move the firewall and motor back 5 more inches to get the dry sump pump to clear the aft pick-up point of the lower control arm. With the smaller Tilton bellhousing I will also be able to lower the motor another inch or more. I also got the Tilton 900-series pedals so I will complete their installation when I move the firewall. Still lots to do, but getting there.

That looks great Pappy.

I donít know what your plan is for the water pump bypass, but I donít see a port in the intake. I tried to run mine without it and it almost always developed an air pocket and belched out my over flow. Iím talking about each drive cycle.

Thanks Todd,

In the past I drilled a couple of holes in the thermostat base circle and that seemed to work fine. I guess my other option is to drill and tap a hole in the face of the thermostat housing boss (below the thermostat) and add a small bypass line from there to the pump. Thanks for the observation.

I don't think I tried that and I don't recall why, but the coolant from the factory returns to the pump under/before the t stat.
