Default Drive Junky Front runner system for LS

Has anyone purchased a drive junky front runner system for an LS 3 motor. The water pump is a Edelbrock. What thermostat did you use and were did you get your heater core fittings.

Thank you all who respond.

I have their system...I re-used the stock crate engine thermostat and the heater core fittings came with the system. They are brass barbed fittings. The Drive junky looks awesome and I primarily went with it because of the nice wrap around the power steering pump since I autocross and beat on it hard. It also comes with the Jones Racing power steering pump which was an added benefit. It is really easy to install too. No fitment issues or stupid spacers like all the other systems. Just be ready to wait a while when you order it. They are custom made, so it takes a while. I think it was 6 weeks for mine.

Default junky

Went with polished front drive from junky. Had issues with water pump hitting the DSE second gen camaro subframe. He took it back and I got one with out res and that worked out fine. Guy is awesome for support. Anyways its a nice piece. For water pump I did not like the brass ones that came with it and went with these....

Nice and clean look. For thermostat I got the billet specialties swivel and just got normal ls thermostat for it.

How long did you wait? You buy from Wegner, you have it quick and it has the same PS belt wrap. It was cheaper too....
