    Ahh, of course. Will face the same issue on my LS1 swap. You go with Sanden SD5 or SD7? Are those Vintage Air brackets? I'm thinking of going with Holley's A/C bracket and making the rest of stock work. Will follow your lead on running A/C hoses above the kick panel, and mounting ECU, and, and, and... Thanks!!!

    no prob at all

    I can't remember which compressor, it's the larger one they supplied with the kit. Originally had the vintage air supplied brackets in the beginning (they are just kwik performance brackets) but have since swapped to the Holley stuff in the later pictures.

    NICE! Specs, especially backspace? You flatten rear seat belt hump?

    Haven't put them on yet but don't forsee any issues based on the research I have done.

    They are Ridler 695's 18x8 4.5" BS for the front and 18x9.5" 5.5" BS on the rear

    tires are 235/40 on front and 275/35 for the rear

    I'll be putting them on in a few weeks

    Went ahead and got some teflon lined socket wrenches to put these on and wife is working late today so I might go ahead and do a test fit and out them on. Tires are roughly same height as my old one's but with a bigger rim. I had 245's all the way around but this time it's going to be 235 in the front and 275 in the back

    Just put one beside the old wheel to get an idea of the size
