    my local shop has the corvette filter/regulator on sale with all the a/n fittings with the vent option as a kit which is great cus awhile back we had to figure out which fittings we needed and had to make several runs back and forth to the store and ended up spending 50 dollars plus on just 3 fittings and now with this kit you get the whole assembly with fittings ready to install

    another tip for you impala guys,ctsv front drive system has the best clearance for your oil pan/crossmember and the accessories have plenty of clearance...f-body and corvette have the ac comp. mounted low so make sure it will clear if not you can buy the bracket from dirty dingo or kwik performance,same thing goes for the alternator if using truck acc.

    great setup and it should clear just fine,you can get it cheaper at your local gm dealer just a heads up..i was going that route as its the best and cheapest way and ac/power steering pump all comes new but im going march setup since the price went down finally and my dealer cost makes it even more affordable,nothing like a march,billet specialties,zoops,vintage,wegner drive system

    do uhave any pics/price of the fuel pump kit you are offering? so its basically a walbro external pump, vette regulator, and a/n fittings?

    i think 1 dude has used them so far for clearance on a 60s impala,performance wise your not gonna get the same performance of a true long tube header but if clearance is an issue then this is your best bet,there is another company offering block hugger type headers for ls engines aswell

    Are any of you using the 500 steering box from CPP with your swap? I am wondering if there are clearance problems? And is anyone using a 700r4 or 200r4 transmission with the TP cable? I am not sure how where to locate the TP on the LS motor.

    I plan on doing this swap really soon. I do know that you need to buy the radiator that is notched to clear the box, other than that should clear everythign else OK. oh and dont buy an 8" booster kit, it will hit the coil packs (ask me how i know lol)

    assuming your talking about the tv cable you will need the stock throttle body from the ls engine you have and if not s and p sells a nice chrome bracket that will work as for the cable youll need the lokar cable if your staying fuel injected and make sure the geometry (adjustement)of the cable is correct or youll have idle and other problems because of it....
