4L80e Crossmember

I just had an adventure trying to get a crossmember installed for my 4L80e.

I tried to stick to the entire Holley/Hooker LS swap parts system.

The Hooker crossmember is very tight on the floorboard and I believe my body mounts - which I replaced in 1992- are not full height. I simply couldn't get enough room to install this crossmember.

So I gave up after 2 days and ordered the GForce crossmember.

It was a piece of cake to install. I highly reccommend it.

Consider yourself warned if you go with the Hooker.

Is your exhaust going to line up correctly with that crossmember?
