The motor's about 300 horses and I love the the 700 and 410s .It will run about 2200 at 70 mph and pulls real good in the other three before you drop it in OD.

I cut the inner wheel wells loose with a plasma cutter.Then moved them over to the edge of the frame and used a piece of metal to fill in the gap.

You can minitub about anything that you put your mind to.As far as the rearend it's about 54 in wide.This link should be of help when it comes to rear end widths.http://www.50chevy.freeservers.com/S...on_Widths.html
