KISS 444-544

Other than the tunnel, it seems like there's a not-too-bad amount of room in the engine compartment. Iamtheonlyrealone (sic) has pics of the LS sitting in the engine bay that make it seem roomier. You just need to get the bulky heater unit out of the way (not an issue in some climates, need to install something inside for others), and probably do something about the steering column. The stock steering column is a pretty significant safety concern anyhow.

I've been thrashing the heck out of mine for more than a decade, with a 175-ish HP B20, no broken stuff on the rear suspension yet. But I don't put very sticky tires on it - just some rather ordinary 205/50/15 Toyo Proxes. That way I spin wheels in 1st gear instead of (possibly) strip gears or snap axle shafts.
