P1800 V8 conversion

I'm subscribing just to follow this one. I have a 5.0L 242. I've looked under the hood and wondered about a p1800 v-8. Sure seems tight under there to me. An acquaintence who's building a B23FT turbo ES did significant cutting/relocation of the back of the firewall/hvac related equipment for his swap. I guess if I did an 1800 I'd want to set the engine back far enough to try and maintain some semblance of reasonable front to rear weight balance. Not sure what the implications are of right hand drive. As with any conversion - dig in and figure it out as you go!
