I spoke with Vintage Air and got a list of parts for an LS2 in a '74 Nova. I wonder if Kwik Performance is selling the same stuff because the price is the same. There were several complications in figuring this out: For the GTO LS2, you have to go with the Camaro LS1 spacing (versus the Corvette or truck spacing). The Sanden compressor is a 7-groove, but the GTO LS2 is a 6-groove - Vintage Air said this isn't a problem. Finally, I had to find a condenser that fit and didn't break the bank. Here are the part numbers for anyone who tries the same thing:

Bracket 141827 $247
Sanden Compressor 04709-VM8 / 7-groove $209
condenser kit: 021173 $240 ($220 w/o dryer)
condenser only: 03767-vuc $139

watch out for shipping. I got my condenser from Summit for 235 +tax and the compressor for 200+tax (mine was 04709-vma) It ended up arriving in a VA box.
