i see the bumper supports but no radiator core or other front sheetmetal parts. i bet there is a good bit of frame/body wiggle. does the local DMV have to sign off on this car? those chassis stiffeners look like tinker toys. hope you never run into anything.

Well if you think that lower core support does anything for structure support you are sadly mistaken. I added one 2 1/4" round stock with .120 wall drop down support in place of the lower core support and to supplement some center support. I also cut out the stock Trans Am "k-frame" and will be adequately supported by the square tubing steering rack mount/brace/frame and a strut tower brace. In addition I made subframe connectors front-rear. This well exceeds the 4 M14 bolts that held in the stock cradle.

And yeah If I run into anything that thing/car/person is gonna be MESSED up!! No more wrinkle/crash crush points :)

your fabbing the headers? have you started? any pics? was interested in the weld quality. we had a corvair with a mid-engine V8, behind driver. headers were pretty simple. but not standard since they came out from motor and straight back. on a normal front engine car, they would have gone right thru the dash.

maybe use some manifolds from a newer sts or srx as your starting point. not that they would be easy to find used. chfrb has some cool exhaust stuff for the northstars in sandrails and other rigs.

how similar is this car to say a 95 camaro now? i think the camaro subframe bolts to the unibody and also supports the motor. i suppose you could see how a camaro is built and try and make similar structural mods.
