Thought I would post this here for reference that may be attained for anyone doing the same. I will be doing this same conversion on a 69 Charger in a few months and thought this would be a great place to retain some info I may need as well.
The car in this post is my old 68 Charger that I built and sold a few years ago.
The new owner is using a local shop (Ace Performance) to do the conversion. They are not a mopar shop but a performance shop.

I will be forwarding Baer the owner of the shop the link to this post and he stated he would like to sign up and become a Moparts member. These are some pics I was forwarded from Baer the owner on his google site. They were screenshots so sorry for borders.
I am sure he will post the progress as they proceed. He stated they are on hold until the magnum force front suspension shows up in 6-8 weeks.
Enjoy.

I read that in an E body the Hellcat engines induction system required relocating a hellcat engine farther fwd than a standard modern Gen 3 Hemi. That is going to be a sick ride.

Supposedly magnum force has redesigned their kits to take care of hood clearance now.
