    You need to get or build a big workbench.

    I ran it up the pass side of the firewall and mounted the regulator up high.
    I used some heat shielding on both sides of the headers to keep the fuel line, starter, and wires away from the heat.

    Ken, yes same size. Make sure you get long enough stainless straps to wrap around the mufflers.
    I think I found the longer straps on eBay or Amazon, don't remember which.

    I used the same shifter too. If you are going to build a console above the tranny cover and mount your shifter like I did consider ordering it with the 6" shift rod. The standard rod is only 4",...

    I did away with as much of the plastic corrugated tubing as possible and then wrapped the wires with automotive cloth tape. In most cases it reduced the OD of the bundle by almost 50%. In some cases...

    Neither the Pink or the Gray wires are used if you have the IDIDIT steering column.

    Correct, with the LED tail lights the purple wires aren't used.
    The IDIDIT steering column has the a turn signal switch and hazard flasher switch in it, so the toggle switches aren't used.

    Not sure if this will help you or not as it's an LS3 not a 383.
    You should be able to get the mounts from Summit or Jegs.
    You'll have to make the triangle plates.

    For my LS3 I used a short NPT nipple and a few NPT fittings that you should be able to get at Lowes, Home Depot, or just about any hardware store if any of them are near you.
