    The Headers will have the same relationship to the subframe they always had… I think if anything building the headers will be easier as there will be tons of room on the drivers side for a change. Just to be clear I’m NOT advocating 50mm spacers just mentioned it as that’s how Holden got around it on the CrossTrac cars, I’d use what ever gives you 10mm bonnet clearance and call it good.

    More so in retro spec to ground clearance. I don’t know if you have mentioned it or not but what’s your engineer say? I’m shocked if they say yes. Out of curiosity. What’s a CTSV hat worth? Is the cost difference that much? Bear in mind you could sell you brand new zl1 lid for decent money. ESP to someone in USA. Those guys are always looking for them. Just food for thought. I didn’t want to stuff around with spacers, I didn’t like the idea of them and the potential suspension and steering geometry changes it could make. I was happy to run a small scoop and went with that.

    Hey Cava it was the engineer that suggested the spacers in the first place I am not a fan of them either , that’s why I am going to give it another crack with out spacers how much did your one sit up above have you got a photo across the guards of it

    Nah I don’t mate. My lid just clear the group a scoop and TB just clears the bonnet skin.

    You need a VE bracket and alternator to suit your pulley offset.

    You will also need to buy a blower tensioner bracket and the upper and lower tensioner pulley.

    Also need some sort of idler to fill power steering pump void.

    Get it all from HSV direct.

    Yeah none of the crate motors come with that. Which is stupid as they need it to run the blower drive

    You only have to change the bracket if you boost it 25% or above. Other then that you can just keep the factory bracket. If I would of known I would have just suggested buying the offset bracket straight up to save some $$$ You would of had change from $400

    I see you having issues with header clearance. I cant quite see from pics but are you using a VL, VN, VP rack or a VH rack. The later steering racks are a lot smaller profile giving more room. Later racks wont bolt up to early K frame. Need to fit later K frame as well. You may already know this and have done it, but just in case.
