That’s what I was thinking. I’m half tempted to just pop the “low side” flat (so the pan would be a bit V shaped towards the pickup tube which in itself isn’t a bad thing either)

Mostly I see Jonny Joints on 4x4 stuff.
I’ve been using poly bushings and DOM tubing for street cars and solid joints for race.

Yes, GM ECM and harness for the LT4 and Ron Francis Wiring for all the other wiring.
