I need to know the length of a Foxbody DS in a BBF fox w/engine plate and C4 tranny and 9" housing. If someone knows the length from joint/joint then I would know what to look for at the swap. Any help would be appreciated.Thx

Check with Damon, he had a c-4 in his car once upon a time. He may even have still his old driveshaft. If you ain't got his number, call me and I'll give it to you. ---RED

Hey Rick I had the aluminum driveshaft from Ford in mine with a C-4 and 9 inch. Driveshaft measured 45 1/2 inches center to center. Now I wasn't using an engine plate. I have a QA1 tubular K member. Double hump crossmember from Ford without any mods.

It maybe ... I wanted better weight transfer n got rid of stock location mounts...I had front of motor inline wit shock towers n bolted plate to tower... Made it super easy to put motor in... Had a turnbuckle bolted to side of block to prevent twist.... Motor was only 750 hp.. But worked awesome..
