gained 2" each side? how'dya do that?? The control arms aren't moved are they?

A buddy is doing this swap, he has new Edelbrock Victor race heads and wants me to make some headers... Yikes! there isn't even room for the needed 1 7/8" or 2" tubes, it looks like time for some surgery by Dr. Acetylene. The 302 Maverick headers are closest to fitting but still will need modification.

the shock towers have a little angle to them, if you cut straight down the tower you gain 2 inches at the bottom and 1.25 inches at the top. but the bottom is where you need the extra room, so it works out great. then i welded new face plaaces on with 1/8 steel.
