Is there any advantage to using a 157 bellhousing over a 164, other than header clearance?

Don't know.
I know that I did originally have a 157 bellhousing on the trans that I got from the boneyard, but at that time I couldn't find a zero balance flexplate too fit.
Since then (after spending 750 ) for a converter, I'd like to go from my 164 tooth back to a 157 tooth (for clearance), but it'd cost out the ass to change the converter.
Besides I think/believe the aftermarket bellhousing, (SFI approved), that I"m getting fits a 164 tooth anyway, so why bother?
