Does anybody know what type of braceing is used on the car, and even with the tall valve covers, can the carlo bar be installed, modified?

Hey Mike,
I used he crites kit and it sets the engine a little high.I cant use a monte carlo bar on mine with the tall motorsport covers.What kit did you use to put the 545 in?
I used a cut off broomstick handle and laid it across where the bar would go just to see and the valvecovers hold it up.It seems to me if you used the chrome pent roof style of v.c.'s it would fit .But I think their ugly in my opinion.
I would also like to know what kind of bracing was used on project 460.

The MPG swap kit sits the engine down enough to clear the export braces and they make them with adjustable spherical rod ends. I don't know if they will work with the Crites swap kit since the engine sits higher but it might.
