Putting a 6.4 hemi with a 6 speed tranny in a 1970 cuda. Put an altercation front end. Put engine and tranny in(kinda). and tranny hits floor bad. How much needs cut out of the original trans hump? Thanks

I have a pic of the 71 Cuda I'm doing with the floor cut for the 6 speed swap. It's to big to post here though. I've put a Hellcat engine in the one I'm doing.

Back through the torsion bar crossmember needs to be removed. The 6spd swap is not even close to a bolt-in swap on an ebody...

Sent you some pics in an email and yes the torsion bar crossmember needs cut also. I had to make my own trans cross member from scratch.

I haven't got that far on mine yet or I'd post pics. Seems photobucket has killed off all the threads with pics of installs. I saw lots of pics on one of the e-body sights if your a member there... not sure if I can post links to other sites.

I don't have many "good" pictures, just some sporadic in-process ones. I kept the torsion bars on my car, so I needed some good structure there. My torsion bar crossmember has the new upper support and what stock crossmember that was left was boxed. I added a new fore/aft frame member as well to help scatter some t-bar load toward the front.

Mine is a T56 Magnum, similar enough to the TR6060 you are probably playing with.

I emailed you some pics today also. I went with an aftermarket k member and coil over shocks. Deleted the torsion bars so I don't have the same rigidity issues that Goody has. I am adding sub frame connectors from US Car Tool though.

I raised the tunnel 1" in a 70 Road Runner for a Gen2 Hemi and a Magnum 6 Spd.
