Are through the wheel well or huggers?

Thanks for the reply. Looking for set of block huggers before I bite the bullet and put in call to Fast Cars.

Nobody makes 302 block huggers for an MGB besides Fast Cars. Even those will require some frame rail massaging.

How so on the frame rail massage? I'm running a SBF w/dry sump that lets the motor sit down a bit further in the bay. Looks like (fatal words) there should be a good bit of clearance but, this is my first rodeo on this type of conversion and I will defer to those who have already been there and done that. Nice looking headers BTW. Just not into cutting out the wheel wells (yet).

Dan Master's GT has the Fast Cars blockhuggers. You might PM him to find out what is involved with the installation.

I might bite on these as I'm getting ready to start my conversion. I just have to ask. Why are you getting rid of them? Putting a turbo in or something?

By the way, the only time was around any was at Townsend a few years back. I roamed the parking lot at the motel one evening asking a lot of questions.
