Great setup and work man I asked you about the kit on youtube and now saw the thread I love it.
I've been really thinking about a similar setup all stock A/C Parts worked except different lines? S480 is good for what 900ish ?
Keep us posted man

Thank you!

Yes all AC parts fit including factory lines. I just had them extended. also had to make my own brackets for condenser.

Im hoping for 8xx-9xx whp but we will see what the stock ls3 can handle. Hopefully the ethanol will let it live

Think it would be possible to run the down pipe all the way back to the rest of the exhaust ?

With the right amount of money, fab work, time, and relocating or deleting; anything is possible I suppose.

I kept AC. And my car is loud but not terrible. For the money, it will do for now until I switch to twins. I recommend it to any "do it yourself-er". The kit fit well, and it required very little modification

Going to tune the car this week and bring it out to street car takeover in Orlando April 7-8th. I have been busy working on another build for my buddy's c6 grandsport. I did clean it all up and set it up on a ccw drag pack though

Then my goal is fulfilled.. I wanted to show you guys that you can do a front mount turbo with a budget, keep accessories and be street friendly.
