I guess that's one advantage to having the distributor in the front of the motor. Now check out the late model 5.0 Fox bodied Mustang twin sump oil pans to get needed clearance for the front axle.

Well I bought a 289/C4 and tried the fit. The exhaust port was very close to the steering box. I tried a few sets of 65/66 Mustang headers but, no go. So I tried the 350/350 combo again. This time I got it to work without cutting the firewall. The crossmember I ordered for the C4 made the 350/350 combo fit.
