Most people take smoke breaks or food breaks or whatever...

...WE take ls1tech breaks. hhahahahahahahahaha.



So far I'm probably going with Nasty Performances Single Pump hotwire kit, but if everyone would rather see it get duals it will.

Thanks! I'm running a dual Walbro in tank with russel -8 feed and -6 return, with an Edelbrock boost referenced fuel pressure regulator. Also seimens 83 lb/hr injectors. I think you should do the nasty dual set-up, the last thing you want to worry about is having enough fuel.

I've been wondering how can i do a truck manifold turbo and keep the a/c

95% of the post says "A/C got to go"

Anybody out there with truck manifolds and A/C??

i think it's because the truck manifold goes where the A/C compressor would be. The c6 manifolds are supposedly better, can't confirm, haven't found a build with those and a/c yet.

No, the truck manifold is right in the way of the A/C. Your only option would be to run a stock or c6 manifold facing the rear of the car on the passenger side. you would then have it loop toward the front of the car, going UNDER the k-member, but this greatly reduces clearance.

Very interested in going to cast manifolds. How hard would it be to modify them, flipped backwards (swap to f4 flange, snake around abs and a/c on the passenger side) ? Love your single setup btw.. but I'm keeping my twins at all cost lol

Its a clutchmasters stage 5, with a bone stock T56 (90k miles on it)

the clutch isnt strong enough but it does fine for the street. im going to switch to the new centerforce twin disc "DYAD" soon

When i buklt my kit for the 76 i built it with stock manifolds facing backwards. Driver side pipe went under the engine/tranny to merge to the passenger side where the passenger side went next to the ac compressor to a t4 flange infront of the waterpump. The DP is routed around the alternator (everything is in the stock location ) and out to the rear via a stock y pipe location. Nothing went below the k member and nothing was lower than a stock y pipe exhaust. I built that in my backyard when i was 20ish, no garage. Now im building my new t6 setup truck manifold style.
