    Earle Williams makes headers that "go around" a stock steering box.


    This is what they look like, but I'm using a C4 steering rack.



    Like I said, if you are changing the firewall out for a custom one, I'd leave the engine in the stock position. I put my 502 1.5" forward but I still changed out the firewall to fit better with the engine. I personally think it looks a lot better smooth.

    I am using the Earl Williams 3/4" fwd mounts and headers. I have the CCP 500 box also. This is where you want the #5 header tube with this location. I did grind the box. The header collector on the pass side is really close to the frame rail so not much room side to side. I like the Earls headers as they stay up above the bottom of the frame. They are spendy but the best fitting.
