    Hi,
    Welcome to the forum.
    You might end up with clearance issues.
    Like steering and exhuast.
    You will have to cut your shock towers.
    Maverick is tiny engine bay.

    Yep an RC107 kit and the sky is the limit for what you can do motor wise and steering and braking is so far advanced. Only downfall is the expense to do it and having somebody to do it for you if you are not a welder

    I'm working on a 71 with an AJE K member that's been professionally installed. After it's installed you can pretty much put anything in it.

    I've heard Maximum Motorsports also makes one, more HD.
