Batman that looks busy. Did you see the vintage air kit it's more compact but it is more money.

What compressor do you have now? That setup uses the SD7, which is compatable with your Vintage air system.

To answer your question directly, yes it will fit, it's a Billet Specialties Tru trac system.

Not totally sure on this but make sure you have enough clearance in front. Most of those drive systems push the pulleys out an inch or so.

Look at the Vintage air, it even shows a DBW throttle body. More money, but less headaches...somebody did their R&D, which is why I suspect the kit you showed is priced so low. It does say LS3 in the title, which is somewhat misleading....the compressor is a no brainer and will swap out for yours.

Bruce I was lucky and most of the parts were on the engine that we bought, John Diembroisio at Boardwalk Chevrotet can help you source what you need.
