Nothing, really. The VA kit is complete. Even has a bracket to mount the compressor in stock LS1 location. You will likely have to notch the crossmember if you decide to mount it there. LS1 compressor not compatible with VA unit.

how many mpg do you get on your 1967 camaro ls1 t56 im getting 17mpg highway before the tune still havent calculated it. back to the vintage air they do have a bracket to relocate the compressor to the top for people that wants to relocate the alternator

Re: V/A in ls1 swap

KWIK sells a bracket that moves the compressor up on high on the Pass side. Thats what I'm running. My 67 had the LS1/auto- it got about 24 mpg on the highway w/3.42's. My 69 has a cam & 3.73's. On way home from powertour this year I got 26mpg from nashville to pensacola, fl., running 75-80mph. Here's a pic of the KWIK bracket on my 69 with Fbody acc.

Re: V/A in ls1 swap

very nice. all of that if from vintage air for the ac setup minus the bracket right? also your 69 everything was tuned right cause right now i have 3.73 and before the tune i got literally like 12 mpg highway and city together and one time nearly 17 mpg on the highway my motor is stock with the slp mafs and ls6 intake and sanderson headers, also before the tune my was running super leaning making it run too hot and they adjusted it, it seems to run a lot smoother ac cell a lot better and sound a lot better i just havent been able to run the car cause i been soo busy with school
thanks

Re: V/A in ls1 swap

Ya I had it dyno'd and tuned with wideband. I was happy with the fatmat. I prefer working with the large sheets rather than the big roll. It was just easier to work with. You may be able to buy the VA kit along with the KWIK bracket- just depends on which vendor you use.
