ok I will be running AC so a passenger side high mount (R4) compressor will be used. I love the factory look and ease of parts chasing if something were to go wrong. I am looking at running truck acc with the 2010 camaro pump and the relocation bracket for the alt idler If the truck intake doesn't clear, If it does then I'm ahead of the game. The set up I have is DBW and want to run the factory harness.

Yeah I think Holley and Dirty Dingo, maybe LSSimple? are the only ones that make the R4 compressor mounts so I assume you are going to be heavily constricted to whatever setup they require you to run to make their bracket kit work.

Great thread and 81cut. Great answer. There is no one answer to this problem.
Engine placement, what accessories, budget and what do you have now? Junkyard stuff is cheap and can be very used, like does a 20 year old ac compressor suit your build?

I can not report since my accessories have not been bolted on and placed in the car yet but my constraints were;
I have an LS with zero parts on it. Not even a balancer. The car is getting AC and forward facing headers to feed a single turbo. Many combinations block that path.

Waiting for the my box from Holley, a complete mid mount kit, including a new compact compressor.

I run the ICT billet pass high mount R4 compressor bracket on my LS swapped K10 with truck accessories and it works great. If the truck stuff fits under the hood that's the direction I'm going.
