    Hey, I think you can do it without cutting the fire wall. Find one of the Hurst y block adaptors for the front mount and take some measurements. I put a y motor in my 40 ford without cutting it up. Did have to use electric fan, it was close. Don't forget the Redd's headers and the Smithies !! Good luck !!!
