Havent but the bbc sits forward a bit more than a sbc and it gets pretty tght in there. Might be good idea to tube front that side and gut the fender but it will need trimmed and possibly move rad forward a touch

Yes. The fit looks to be pretty tight. Do you know any companies making a bolt in tube front for these camaros?

I do not. For you might just need the driver side, cut frame off just in front of the strut tower and trim fender.
Probably want to go manual rack pinion steering too

The car made 900 hp at 5800 rpm. This was with low boost, 93 octane and a hydraulic roller cam. Engine is out of the car getting some minor upgrades. Will be back on the dyno soon.
