I have the thinnest profile pan (H3/muscle car pan) and still notched my crossmember. Notching is not necessary, but you will be cutting the trans tunnel if you dont. From the research ive done, 2" notch will allow you to get by without cutting into the tunnel.

Also interested in this since my trans needs a rebuild and the motor seems pretty tired.  Been throwing around this idea for years; anyone have a build thread or more info on mounting up the trans and gear selector?

How did your swap turn out?

I am currently in the early stages on my 61 and was going to pick your brain if you had completed yours yet.

Yep, i had finished mine and drove for a year or so before the reluctor wheel on my motor spun.. its been sitting for over a year now. Lol im actually looking at possibly putting a complete custom chassis under my car, i guess time will tell.

Just tried dry fitting engine into car.  WOW more issues than I would of thought.
1.  Water pump
2.  Think I will have to cut tunnel.  I can cut the crossmember but engine still way too low and worried about hitting oil pan when driving or when I air bags all the way down.
Think I am better off cutting the tunnel 2"  and putting in a filler piece and not cutting crossmember.  This way I can use headers and those will fit. 

What are everyones thoughts...
