Welcome Amwise,

definitely should be concerned about the starter as stated. Most installs involve trying to drop the tall-profile 4BT down between the frame rails quite a bit. If you bring the starter up (pass side) there is also the exhaust to contend with.

Here is an adapter made on CNC, not sure if they clocked out the 8 degrees or not. (I'm not affiliated with their company)

Another design consideration would be for automatics (like mine, ha hah). It would be great to design-out the wave ring, basically bringing the Torque Converter closer to the Flexplate, (if the TC doesn't hit the Crank Spacer).

You could even machine a Flexplate with an annular ring the correct diameter (I belive a 10.5 in bolt circle rather than 11.5 in) so stock Torque Converters will bolt up which would also get rid of the Wave Ring.

Look forward to seeing your ideas.
Best Regards,
George
