I went forward facing with my BBF/Fox as well. I struggled with ground clearance on my big tube Kooks once I got the engine exactly where it needed to be in regards to crank height and trans output shaft height. Those changes in the engine angle sucked the collectors up to the floor nice and tight but it only had about 2.5" of ground clearance.
I ended up with a set of used forward facing headers. Best money I've spent on this car so far.
Did you make yours with the CJ flange so you can upgrade heads later?
