That kit was designed for Chevelles right?
No, we actually designed the kit on a first gen Camaro subframe since it's one of the tighter engine bays, that way we knew it would fit into numerous other cars.
Very nice setup, but does that fit under a stock 2" cowl hood on a first gen. I'm building a twin and the hat HAS to be turned. I couldn't use the CSU hat. I went with the EV because of hood clearance and had to turn it. Also does the drivers side turbo hit the fender? Do you have any pics of the system installed in a car? Here's some pics of my hat and there was no way it would fit straight to the merge.
What intake are you running, carb spacer or nitrous plate? Is that EV hat the sloped version where you can't put it straight forward without some kind of 'hat spacer'?
Whether our system will clear or not depends on the motor mounts, which intake and which hat. The way our cold-side piping, 2 into 1 collector and carb hat hooks up allow's for the collector and pipes to be pulled down for added hood clearance if needed. I can't say for sure yes or no at this point since we haven't had our system in a gen 1 camaro yet. We just sent a system to a guy with one so hopefully he will be getting the car up and running here soon and report back. With the right mounts, intake, no spacer, the right carb hat and slope the intake pipes and collector down I think it should fit under a stock hood, if you switched over to EFI then it would for sure fit under the hood.
No, the driver's side turbo does not hit the inner fender, here are some pics of the setup in a first gen camaro subframe (both stage-1 & 2).
