Default Has anyone run a t4 s480 on a Huron speed ac kit

Looking to find out what all I'll have to do to make this t4 s480 fit. I have the Huron speed t4 ac kit.
It looks like I'll have to move the rad a little to make room for the turbo.
I'd like to hear from anyone who has run this size turbo on this kit.
Has anyone stood up the rad and kept ac. My goal is to keep ac and make 800whp

I'd think there are other smaller (physical size and weight) t4 turbos that can achieve your goal, like a 78/75 turbonetics for example.
Might cost a little bit more (not much) but should fit in a tighter area.

Its going on a 408 and I don't want any back pressure issues. I already have the kit and turbo. I think anything smaller then what I have would create too much back pressure. And Id like the option to turn it up and make some big power.

I'd like to make it a sleeper with a full exhaust, interior and stock exterior.

I'm running the S480 on my 408 and the Huron Speed gen 1 a/c kit. It made 890 out of injector at 16 pounds on pump gas and meth.

Did u have to move your rad ? Any pictures ?
890 is solid for 16lbs. What size injectors ?
I've got a nice return style fuel system for mine just no injectors. They are the last part I need

I did not have to move my radiator but my radiator is a tad different from others that have been. I'm running 80lb injectors and 100% methanol. I'll look and see if I can find some pics.

I'm running a full exhaust with a cut out dumped right off of the turbo.

No a/c no. I'm running the a/c kit but no a/c. I think you can stand the radiator up with the a/c intact.

I must admit I'm a little perplexed why you want to keep your AC in Canada. When I was a child we never had AC. Only the rich people had AC in their cars in the 60's and 70s. I lived up there in Kingston, Ontario for a few years. Having also lived in the south, I'm used to the heat, I never thought it got hot enough in Canada for me to actually want to use the AC. I kinda like that 2-70 air, or in metric that 2-120 air. I guess it is what you get used to? Canadians do go swimming in Florida in March, when the locals think its crazy cold too.

The rad will have to be moved quite abit, and if you'd like to keep the A/C that may require some fiddling with.
I'm running a t4 s475 on a Huron non AC v2, though I'm running a stand up griffin rad. I don't have a whole lot of room between the exhaust housing and the rad, even with it flush to the rad support. The car is a storage shelf right now, but I can try and snap some pictures of where the turbo sits if you'd like.
I can't see there being much of a difference in turbo location from the non-ac to the ac kit, but I've been wrong before.

When it's 90 degrees out for a week or two solid ac is a must. Especially when u have little kids in the car. Nothing worse then sitting in traffic sweating your ***** off when everyone else has there windows up with the ac cranked.
I'm going to do my best to keep my ac.

I just finished my 408 with a v2 t4 Huron ac kit and s480. I moved my radiator forward a half inch but not because of the turbo. The drain petcock was in the way of my cold side. The extra room I like though since I'm the stock location it was pretty close to the turbo.

That's good to hear. Did u have to cut anything to move the rad back ?
I was thinking I wouldn't be able to use this turbo

I trimmed about an inch off the locating rod on the radator. Also trimmed the same amount of the rubber isolator that goes around the plastic locating rod. Other than that everything is as it was stock.
