    I did a similar thing to install the BMC out of a Gen 3 (think it was a Gen 3...) Pajero. The 2 top brake booster studs lined up with the steering column/brake booster brace holes. I cheated a little by using the Gen 3 brake booster spacer and used the bottom through holes as a drill guide and went through the firewall with a new 8mm HSS drill bit (I dummied the spacer in place with 2 x 8mm bolts and flange nuts so the spacer was held exactly where I needed it) Had to do some sketchy free hand bending of the existing solid brake lines, but it appears to have worked fine.

    Building custom headers and have one side pretty much finished up. Went with a tri-y design just to simplify things and there just isn't much room to work with. I purchased cheap stainless headers off eBay and cut them up to build these. Much cheaper than buying all the tubing, got a few sets for around $45 a piece.

    ...and they'll probably be better finished compared to how you got them. Nice work! I have a similar idea to use headers from an NA Talon if I ever get the chance to go twin cam. I can get them relatively cheap but the freight will burn me.

    Question regarding your gauges. Are you able to use the factory speedometer? If so what did you need to do to keep it?
