    Accessory setups that can fit a 4.8L to clear a LS1/LS3 Intake?

    Im really wanting to swap my accessory drive out for like a Camaro or Corvette setup, Ive heard they are more low profile so you can put a stock LS1/LS3 or a F.A.S.T. or Edelbrock style intake manifold on. Im curious what year Camaro or Corvette setup can I use? Is it possible? If so has anyone done this swap and have any advice about doing it?

    running car accesories is the best option but it does add up and sits closer to the motor

    the new LS3/L99 camaro accesories are the same spacing as trucks but look alot cleaner [recently found this out]

    vette sit further back [closer to motor]

    Gto are Fbody based with a different PS setup

    if using Fbody or GTo you keep your AC setup and enlongate the holes to slide bracket back

    it ain't that I'm too big to listen to the rumors, It's just that I'm too damn big to pay attention to 'em..That's the difference

    redheartbeat also sells a spacer that works with factory waterpump if you don't want to swap all accessories. There's a write-up on first page. Cheaper (tho not necessarily as cool looking)
    blown transmissions are about as useful as 97% of the guys on this forum

    No need for spacers can use ls3 water pump for car intake

    Is it all LS3 or just the F-body?
    Guess what I am asking is does the Corvette have the same setup as the 2010 Camaro?
