    I have the oppertunity to purchase an older kit with a v-1 s trim for a fox body. Problem is my car (88 gt) has no AC, smog, and no p/s its been converted to a manual rack and pinion. Good deal for the kit, but from what I am understand it cant be run easily on my car because of the lack of these ? any help would be greatly appreciated.

    X2 on the smog pump elim pulley. I ran that on my old stang with an S trim and no A/C.

    If you don't want to go that route......Although this was for a carb setup, it should work fine. All you need is the appropriate alternator bracket.

    First off guys thanks for the replies. Just trying to get this all figured out before I purchase it. Hate to have one sitting in my garage with no use. So I'm also looking at vortech's installation manual. and it seems like I can run from the crank to the super charger. Then another belt for water pump, alternator to crank.

    when I ran no a/c or p/s with my s trim I ran a smog elim pulley, alt, ran the crank and waterpump routing like normal with a march a/c p/s delete that kept the tensioner. I don't see any reason not to keep the tensioner. the crank pulley vortech gives you has a place for 2 belts, one the serpentine and the other the blower belt.
