first roots blown ls4 engine ive ever seen!

i need to dig up more info on how this was put together!

this anyone on here? - LS1TECH

thought everyone said there wasnt enough room on the side of the engine for the belt setup.

hmmm just like everyone said the 4t80 wouldnt work either...... weird what happens when people get off the couch and make shit work!!

i envy builds like this.

edit! totally skipped over the price...... $3500 for the whole car! must stop looking at it...... if i dont ill keep wanting to send paypal or something. fuck thats a badass setup for 3500. needs a trans go figure but who cares i have a few of those laying around.........

It's not a LS9 its a LSA with a LS9 lid due to space issues. I think [MENTION=22]syP[/MENTION] would have bought it if it was a LS9 blower...

[MENTION=10059]Jokerzl[/MENTION] got any idea on this setup?

What's with the supposed reverse rotation? Them screws out of a different blower or any idea what the deal is here?

If you look through the pics I don't think he is running a power steering pump unless its been switched to electric assist?

Need to dig up more info on this setup!

No power steering would suck on a set up like that I'm guessing he has electric assist or he visits the ditch often

Im pretty sure ive seen some people on the LS1 site talking about switching to an electric rack from a damn vue or something? Some other GM vehicle that had electric steering just don't remember what it was.

:fu: for being overseas! For $3500 its tempting enough to stuff that engine in my caged car and rob the brakes sway bars seats and wheels off the GXP for my 99 coupe.
