If I can ever get my fbody drive accessories mailed I'll let ya know if mine works with an a/c compressor. If not I'll go vintage air.

Ooh- good point. Was thinking more on the compressor instead of the firewall suitcase. Mainly because already running aftermarket air with the flat firewall panel. Think ict has something for f body accessory drive and speed engineering for trucks.

The removal of that big ugly box is something that may make me spend money on a vintage air or resto air setup either way. However, best I can tell it will not interfere with my turbo hotside.

My whole build is in covid backorder hell right now so I haven't ripped apart my running car to fully test this. Just mounting things on the engine stand and doing my best to measure.

Luckily my UMI suspension is almost here so I can start that, chassis mods, c5 brakes and my 9" install at that point. Then I'm waiting on my Pro Flo 4 to finally be in stock. Ordered in November and it's expected to ship 3/31 now (although it keeps moving).

Thanks! Not yet. Just mostly been lurking and reading up to prepare for any issues I may run into. With the pro Flo 4 so far out on ship date it almost feels weird to start one now when I'll just be sitting around forever. Right now it's just piles of parts shoved in cabinets, under work benches or any other place I can find. I kind of went all in even though pics don't currently reflect it like new gas tank, radiator, clutch, built tr6060, Dakota digital gauges, just basically replacing everything. I'm going for a "sleeper" type look where I won't be changing anything inside the car and externally it's just gonna be sitting on some custom 18x12 and 18x10s with a mini tub :) I love the snowflake repos but the car is gonna need more than that.

Plus my dumb self already ran into small issues like realizing Corvette accessory drive doesn't work with my turbo kit lol. So already some wasted money and lessons learned.
