    Can someone tell me the advantages of clocking the 203 upside down?Is it because of the shifter clearance or does it just pull evrything up otta the way?

    It gets the bottom of the 203 up higher (obviously) so it saves a few inches of ground clearance. You can get the same clearance gain by clocking the 203 90 degrees and still have the shifter on the top and all the gears slinging oil. Having the 203 upside down gives a little better exhaust clearance under the truck but takes up some interior space in the straight up direction.
    Unless you're going to be rotating the 205 up a long way, twisting the 203 doesn't do much for you. The 2" rotation we do is about all most trucks want before the front driveshaft becomes a problem. Going with more rotation on the 205 calls for lower ride heights, axle relocation, high pinion housings, exotic driveshaft mods, etc.
