I am installing a TKO and lakewood bellhousing as we speak. I was wondering if you can get the bellhousing on with both BBK headers on. Also, is there any clearance issues that I'll need to deal with. Looks like the driver side is fine, but I dont have the pass. side header on yet.

Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks,
Steve

To clear any doubt about the bell housing clearing, the best thing to do is to trim the lakewood bell and block plate as close to the original bell as possible especially on the right side. After trimming, you may get it in with the headers on or at least one side loosened. this depends on differences from one brand header to the next. The sarter mounting location makes for a really tight to a no fit at all situation. Also lakewood had an engineering goof and made the 4.6 bells with the wrong size dowel holes. They were supposed to fix that but i dunno if they have.
