Default 40 Size Shrike w/Jett FIRE 50 ?

Now that I lost my Whiplash(My fault), I have a Jett FIRE .50 waiting for a home. Ihave two of the 15 size Shrikes overpowered. I was thinking of building the 40 size for my FIRE .50. The only problem I can see is getting the exhaust out since it is a rear exhaust engine. Has anyone put one of these engines in a shrike before? I don't think it should be a problem.
Thanks,
Craig

The header rises about 1.5" I believe. I might have to carve a little out just above the firewall for the header to clear.

What would be a good prop to start out with for the Jett FIRE 50 on a Shrike? I had a 8.75x9 on my Whiplash. The Shrike has a lot more drag.
Thanks,
Craig
