    Do those that have used the kwik performance brackets have to trim their fender wells as well?

    Not sure or not, but I have the DSE frame and I think the motor sits a little lower. I had to trim the driver side too for the alternator. I'm sure others hadn't have to do that....

    I tried the Holley recommended belt 2515 but it was to small and found that the 2540 fits good.
