That makes me wonder if your idea can be combined with the shorter blower motor to gain even more clearance. I'll have to give that a shot when the time comes.

This head may end up on my sons '80 at some point if I turbo it so I'm not gonna do more than some clean up work. I figure this combo should get me 220 HP & until I drive it awhile I wont know if I want more in a daily driver. I'm gonna Pro Street my '73 sedan & toss the tunnel rammed 302/T-5 combo in it since I have it but If I really want to go over 400 HP with a turbo 2.3L I may put it in there 4 or 5 years down the road & leave the wagon alone.
 
I don't really have a solid plan for the future because there are too many IF's to see past.
 
BTW, is this the correct exhaust housing for the Super 60? I wont have the turbo in front of me for 2 weeks & since it's missing I have no clue what it looks like.
