A few goodies came in.

The Magnuson Supercharger will be a great addition to our LS engine. David over at Magnuson got us the 2004 GTO LS1 kit for this car. Everything works great with the exception of a few small things we need to modify (since this isn't a GTO). The kit looks awesome, well put together and super high quality. Very impressed. More details as we install will come.

The blower pulleys in the rear are very very close to the firewall and almost rub. The UMI LSX motor mounts P/N 4008 have the ability to move the engine forward to get the clearance we need. However the factory LS1 pan will now hit the crossmember, and since the frame is already powder coated cutting the crossmember isn't an option. So we elected to get the Holley P/N 302-2 pan that offers around 1-7/8" more clearance over the factory LS1 pan. This worked great and gave us the clearance we needed,.

UMI's LSx motor mounts, P/N 4008 that were designed off of this build.

The clutch kit and hydraulic conversion kit with peddle came in as well. We will be using the McLeod RST twin disc clutch with aluminum flywheel.
