I've searched the archives and found that the A/C compresssor from a camaro or firebird will interfere with the subframe. Is there a fix other than using an A/C delete pulley? Is the interference in a location that will allow the frame to be notched easily? Is the accesory drive setup from an impala different? Thanx.

(Quote from this link hope it helps)
Due to compressor/frame interference problems I originally used a 1LE A/C delete pulley to run the motor. Since I live in Las Vegas and A/C would be a plus, I recently swapped over to the Corvette accessory drive which locates the A/C compressor on the drivers side of the motor high enough to clear everything. I considered the Street and Performance manufactured pulley set-up but it was a little bit too pricey.

Sorry that I wasn't clear. I want to maintain the A/C compressor on the passenger side. I am aware that the corvette setup is different.
Also thanx for the link. I'd seen it before, but couldn't find it in my recent searches.
