I beleive the recommendation has been to use a C6 manifold. I have heard people say one of the FWD LS4 manifolds can be used as well.

Honestly I'm not sure. I think the idea was that they exit more in the center aimed downward so you could fanangle it to get by the compressor somehow.

I'm doing a truck/c6 manifold build and I'm planning on keeping the AC as well. From my assumption you have to use a drivers side manifold flipped and aimed downward. You can then route the tubing around the compressor/dryer housing as well.

If your looking to build, I'm not sure. If you're looking to buy, talk to KYTP. Awesome guys with awesome parts. Hell, he might even help you if you don't buy from them.

Depending on the size of your downpipe, you may be able to get enough space with solid motor mounts....might need to bend power steering lines out of the way though.

I decided to make it easy on myself and bought a BMR turbo k member.
