Here's one of the heater box. As you can see, no mods are necessary. (Unless you have one of those A/C boxes, which I do not have).

Here's one of exhaust clearance.







Mine is a 302. The headers were very close to the frame and I had to notch the pass. side one a little to clear it. These pics were also taken with a 3" body lift installed, which I do not have anymore.

Heres mine with the 89500's.(2" BL)

This (of course) is the passenger side. Not a lot of room, but is squeaked by. The driver side has a lot more room(like above post).
Heater box.

My notching was a little extreme, but it still works(fairly well).

The problem with the GT 40 "P" heads is that you are limited to what headers will work with it due to the spark plug being angled, requires regular headers to be modified...GT 40 heads work with regular headers...
