I do have a one piece drive shaft. I know that moving the engine forward would require the drive shaft to be lengthened, but adding the overdrive would require the drive shaft to be shortened. Those two mods may cancel out any drive shaft mods, but I'll tackle that one after the 396 and OD are installed.
