That makes the engine bolt in nice. wiring is easy enough. do the B/RB exhaust manifolds work and leave clearance to get the rest of the exhaust on? or is a custom header needed. if b/rb manidolds work witch ones (from what car)?

Looks like run-of-the-mill log-style manifolds, Mopar's de facto standard exhaust back then, used on various models. Otherwise, you'd need a custom header arrangement. They also have an under chassis B/RB custom header exhaust. It's intended for even the little A-bodies. Seems like it could be tweaked for the Dak.

I ordered the B/RB kit from Schumacher Creative Servises(sweet deal) i was just wondering about the drive shaft my dak is a reg cab short box. what drive shaft do I need once I have the 440/ 727 sitting in place? or does the original shaft work. and is my brake booster going to clear the engine?

with the stock valve covers, it should clear. It might now clear with the mopar performance covers.
