A body hemi swap

I am in the process of swapping a late model hemi into my buddy's scamp. Episodes 1 and 2 are out with 3 on the way. It is exciting. Does anyone here have experience with steering setup or brake master cylinder placement? Thanks.

Looks as bad as putting a RB big block in, if I remember correctly the steering will move 3/4 of an inch but what I did was shorten the housing to just after the fire wall and then put a Borgensen joint in place on the rag joint. I used 2" under car headers so the steering was a pain.
Good luck with your progress it looks like fun! What are you going to use to run it, stock harness?
I was just thinking that if you turned the manifold around turbos could be fitted and it would save so much grief on the exhaust. Just a thought. 🙂

Thanks for the insights! I do plan on running the stock harness. I have definitely considered the twin turbo approach. I will keep you guys updated. Thanks for reading and watching.
