As stated: this has been talked about. What most people have not thought about is this. Even though the difference in height seems minimal, when applied to the complete engine AT AN ANGLE your dimensions gain alot of distance from the front of the motor to the back. As far as I know, the transmission is mounted at the BACK, in the same locations!! The movement of the engine is only the difference in the height!! This is of course for small blocks only, as big blocks are offset.
