Must be a lot of people ordering these. I ordered mine just before Christmas and it came in just after the new year. Gotta say it’s a nice piece, but the wait seems to be getting longer and longer.
I'm hoping its worth the wait. Does it really have that much more clearance over the factory cover?

I haven’t personally installed mine yet, but I’ve gotten feedback from a few friends who have installed theirs and it’s well worth it.

have you tried Summit instead of Holley
I got mine in less than 5 days,shipped from a warehouse in Texas
Thats actually where I ordered it from. Next day air was only $34 from summit vs $84 from holley.

I still have more fitting to do and to mount the bottom rubber isolators but I got the radiator to fit in the core support today. A little progress here and there.

I got an email from Holley yesterday saying the Ac box is back in stock on their website!
Thanks! I called and ordered one directly through Holley this morning. Interestingly enough, I got an email from Summit over the weekend saying they were extending the expecting ship time to Feb 4th.

Also I found this water pump diagram while trying to figure out which water pump I want to use. I thought it might be useful because it shows the spacing and the part numbers.

As far as progress on the truck I wasn't able to find time to work on it last weekend but I did order a Winstar cooling fan assy Dorman part 620-131). I'm going to see how it fits and maybe build some fan mounting tabs/ brackets.

Im going to use a 28" core silverado radiator. (The smaller of the two radiator options for a silverado, tahoe etc.) Its going to be paired with Harley's coolant recovery tank set up.

I have a new Silverado radiator as well and was thinking of using it.My buddy had a body shop and for some reason this came up as an extra. I think I gave him $20 for it,still has tags on it.

Its going to be pretty tough to fit the silverado radiator without a body lift. I had to completely remove the bottom of my core support. The rubber radiator isolators are located on the front frame horns. I have more time in modifying my core support than making motor mounts.

GM used to "make" a taller radiator fit by dropping the lower support on the core support.
I wanted a deeper(A/C V8) radiator for my Tempest,so cut off the lower part of the A/C core support and welded it into my shorter radiator core support.
Im betting the same can be done here.

I have a shipping confirmation from Holley! I should have an evap cover by Friday with any luck. Once I get that installed the engine can go in for the last time hopefully.

Ok a few more updates. I received the Holley box and got it installed. It thinner but it’s hard to gauge how much room it will free up until I get the motor back in.
Edit: I added a picture of the firewall clearance. The Holley box is provides much more clearance and is worth the money. I can run my hand around the whole backside of the motor.

I also clearanced the frame some where AC compressor wouldn’t come out while the motor was in. Hopefully it will be enough. I started by marking where it seemed to hit the most and heating it up with a torch and then knocking in the metal with a hammer a little bit.

I bought the LS2 Corvette style because I liked the look of the flat-faced pulley and I thought that might give a little more clearance.
