Teh 97 I bought has MAC long tubes on it and I am seriuosly deabting about taking them off. The car needed a tranny and I caught hell takin out the tranny with the LT's. Doubt I would of got it out if the bell housing wasn't busted. And not to mentiont he starter bolts. Right now I am leaning toward takign off the LT incase I have to install a starter or if the tranny has to ever come back out. What are the secert to the Mod motors with long tubes as far as tranny & starter replacement????
