Oh, okay. And yes, undertaking a massive task like this would do that to a guy!

Another thought to consider in how your piping and whatnot for your turbo would sit in yours: check out pics of how everything sits on the LS4 when it's in the car, under the hood. Then compare under your actual hood to see where things would need to sit, what you would need to modify, etc., etc...

Also, see if you can get a spare set of exhaust manifolds from your car - another 3.5L, to be able to start any kind of fabrication work for the flange of the turbo on a crossover pipe, new downpipe shape and position and how it would need to run and connect with the rest of your exhaust... getting the ideas and basics off the LS4's system is a good way to get a basic idea for yours. But I would actually want to look more at my own set-up for where and how things would need to be run, where things would need to sit and so on.

Or if you can pick up a spare motor from a wrecked car for fairly cheap, even better way to get a lot of your custom fab work done... this way with a spare motor out of the car and in the open, it will give you the room to move around it and have more access to parts to remove, modify, and bolt back on to see if your measurements and fitment is correct or not. Not only that, but would also be a prime time to rebuild the new (spare) motor to the new internals and stuff you may need or will want... nothing like having a freshly redone engine to.have all the new stuff bolted to and ready to drop in when the time is right...

Doing this with the 3.5 specifically - especially when it's in the car, will give you a lot more specifics for your application than trying to base it all off another platform. It may be close and similar in many ways, areas and aspects, but different just because of your motor and how it all.sits under your hood.

Just some thoughts and ideas from an outside angle... Again, good luck with your build man. Keeping an eye out and wishing you luck on it! And it's all good man. No stress!!!

Yes sir Jeff, you are partially correct. That IS the upper half (intercooler) from the LS9 supercharger. But the bottom half is NOT from the LS9... the blower itself is a 1.9L roots style blower, that is the hint/clue. The LS9 is a believe a 2.3L, so it is not the same blower from the LS9...

And the guy that did it, said that he whipped it together from stuff he had "laying around the shop"... Just makes you think and wonder about what kinds of cars he's really working on if he has stuff like that "laying around the shop"...
