    Front accessories

    I guess this is the right forum...if not, I won't gripe if someone moves it. For an LS1 swap into a 1991 Miata, what donor car has the most compact front acessories? I'm figuring truck parts are out, since I think they'd put the alternator into the hood. The car might end up with A/C, but not sure yet.

    My recollection is that there are three mounting systems: Corvette, truck and F-body. Carcraft had a real nice write up on LS accessory drives a few months ago: http://www.carcraft.com/techarticles...ide/index.html

    Thanks...what about the GTO? Did that use F-body stuff or something unique?

    That's a good question -- I honestly do not know and Car Craft may have not included the GTO as there simply would not be that many in the boneyards, or the setup is the same as one of the other three.

    From the article, it seems only the F-car setup has any prayer of fitting without serious surgery.

    It says rthe CTS-V also uses the F-car setup. (Like I'd ever find someone oparting one of THOSE out...)

    I recall their Elky's engine actually came from a GTO...

    Am I nuts for actually considering a 400+HP Miata?

    Are you trying to make a LS version of the Banshee project from Gearz by Stacey David and Monster Miata?

    I'd never seen it (though I've seen the Monster Miatas), but yeah, something like that.

    While I'm here: is there an easy way to put together a setup that deletes the A/C and the power steering pump without a bunch of idlers? The Miata will have neither.
