Oh god, maybe I'll just start that Shelby GT-350R kit I'm not sure this 'Super Boss' Mustang and I were ever meant to be mates. As far as engine dimensions go everything seems to line up okay for the tranny etc,. I think part of the problem is that fact that the heads weren't even with the ends of the front cover, (they were significantly lower) , so I had to do some things (I raised the heads with thin stock) to get that surface even so the valve covers would mount. Anyhoo, in that process the angle on one of the heads is off slightly, thanks AMT. And, this is the first time I've built this kit so I have no historical reference here. I think AMT forgot to put one sticker on the box for this kit, it would read " Instant Glue Bomb!
Ace, you have any tips/advice for installing the engine? The first attempt was thwarted by the headers being too wide to fit in the designated area. I have since relocated and pinned the headers, also one of the cowl braces is off as well as one of the trailing links, so , hopefully things go smoother this time. Even with things as described above the drivers side headers still hit the drivers side trailing links, resulting in the engine not sitting upright, or , straight, so,....... there's no way I'm messing with the headers again. I'll have to try and figure out a way to widen the location of the trailing links.
