STS makes kits for late-models, so I'd see no problem. A buddy of mine had a single installed in his 02 Camaro a while back. He loved it, and it put down good power. The only issue would be lag, since they're so much further back.

I just realized you're in Mentor! I went there on business visiting Component Repair Technologies a few years ago. This was in June, so the weather was awesome. I'm a big fan.

Looks like a real nice build! Any chance of getting a tape measure pic along side the AC compressor & bractet? I want to get a idea how far I need to notch and I'm broke for a while. LOL. Thanks

Just picked up a 4l80e , it code is 6JHP. It's a core so I can build it up with all the good stuff & get full manual trans brake valve body & etc. I'm thinking that I've should've bought the 97-03 unit but this is 96. What do u guys think cause it's gonna be TT 370 around 1400 hp.
Thanks Garry

Garysturbo,
Thanks for the pics!!!! From the pic, it appears the back of the compressor body is flush with the rear mount hole from the pic above, correct? Ballpark past bolt centerline? LOL, Sorry dude. I do REALLY do appreicate the pics and feedback for my pain in the azz questions. LOL.

I am digging the black A/C controls. It seems to fit the Challenger console very well IMHO.

Thanks again,
jim

Jim , your not being a pain , I'm learning my self & how are we gonna know anything if we don't ask. As for the end of compressor is flush with the end of mount ( top ). Yes it's close to the motor mount but it works. The pics is up close shot , hope it helps. The motor mount adapter is stock location Car Shop but i moved it forward 1 1/4 (one of the block mount bolt lined up & drilled & tap 2 holes on each side so I can make this kit work). Thanks for the imply , I might change the 4 **** control with part of the Challenger original air & heat control & cut portion out & put it on top of console like original & put vintage air control in place. I'm not liking the pods I have & might use the original Nova louvers.
Thanks Garry

Yes I forgot to mention that I have the Fessler Billet Black anodize trunk hinge. Also got stainless steel door latch striker & adjustable hood stop. I'm looking to order the Clayton Machine gas & brake assembly & their door & window crank handle.

Hi , a little update. I decided to use the factory vent hole & control hole with filler panel & drill 2 holes each ,. On the driver side left panel has upper hole is filled with 2 1/16 fuel pressure gauge & lower hole is round vent & right side of driver panel is upper for boost gauge & lower hole for other round vent . Then I drilled 2 holes on passenger side under dash pad @ used the other 2 round vent. As for the filler panel , I'm gonna do some detail work to fill any gaps. Here's some pics.
Thanks Garry
