Thanks man! I thought so too! It sure doesn't look like it'll fit tho...
Only 5 bellhousing bolts line up but I'm starting to accept that a lot of this isn't gonna come completely together.

But the engine hits the firewall right in front of the throttle pedal bracket.
Plenty of room up front tho.

I can't move the engine any more forward on the k member and the firewall keeps it from lining up.
I'll probably just give up at this point.
Haha jk!!

Haha right? I was going to cut out what interferes but the gas pedal is bolted to the exact area I need to cut.

Make yourself a mock up that bolts where the pedal assembly would. Cut it all out and leave the rig where the bolts need to go for the assembly. Then you can frame it in with either flat stock or 1 inch channel steel box, then replace the sheet metal, prime and paint.

Hopefully you can visualize what I'm getting at here. If not I can pull something up for you.

I wonder if there is a way to space the trans with a longer input shaft and a spacer

Could be. Might be an acceptable route for this swap. Could need to be custom made as well
