Another reason the stock DS can't be used is because the RG's output shaft has 32 splines vs. 27 for OEM and I can't find a 27 spline slip yoke w/ 1310+1310 U joints. If there's one, then I'd go for that but it will have to be a quick release type. So our choices are very limited.

Use a Corvette T400 yoke at the trans end. 32 spline, bolt on 1330 u-joint. Then use a combination u-joint to the stock shaft. The u-joint I listed has a grease fiting just as a sample joint.You want a solid joint and Spicer makes them.

Tom's solution would definitely work for you. I know a lot of people here have run the combo joint, even on the transmission end, to use the stock driveshaft. I think that is what all the TKO conversions run, and used with some high hp engines. Those transmissions run so far back into the tunnel that in some cars the 1330's don't even fit.

You are correct Tom that the TH400 yoke is the way to go and it is in fact what I have and it is with this yoke that I have clearance issues. I know the transmission mounts have slotted holes but haven't checked if the trans is mounted too close to the passenger side or have room for me to shift it towards the driver's side, and if I do, then it will be an easy install. But regardless since I need to get a DS anyway, I think I'll want to get a beefier one than stock as I may up the compression of the motor from its current 9.6:1 to maybe 10.5:1 as I'm running a Fitech EFI that has a Wide band O2 sensor hooked up and can detect ping and retard timing/add fuel accordingly.
All you guys' responses have been helpful and I much appreciate all the advises and insights.
