    Probably won't even need the "power adder", going from a heavy Commondore into a little Gemini. How much firewall/tunnel mods you need?!

    If you're talking about the suspension supports that tie into the tunnel just bash em round till there's enough room for the box to fit. Sounds dodge but better than cutting and shutting them . I had sbc/glide in mine with an engine plate . Still got the plate if you want it let me know

    Don't think that plate will be any use to him if its to suit a sbc

    Yeah all bolted in . Used a standard gemini trimatic x member , reversed . Auto gemini yolk slid into the back of the box . Admittedly I used a 6 cyl Pg with a dellow bell housing .
