So my gen4 came in and I realized. I never thought about the mounting for the passenger cv axle bracket? I'm going to use my s54 trans. Anyone know if the stock bracket will mount onto the gen4 block?

the stock gt bracket will work

Hey ender, is it a direct swap over, or does the bracket need to be drilled out? No other brackets back there, clear block.

Not seeing anywhere it could mount up =/ - I could just be blind, happens often.

It will heat-soak like crazy, so most guys go front mount. Every gen 3sgte hates hot intake temps, and having a air-to-air top mount without the proper hood vent will basically raise the intake temps way out of optimal performance range. You can always go water-to-air from a ST205 also, but throw that top mount on eBay ASAP.

You'll really need to switch to a FMIC. The GT4 hood's main vent is designed to pull hot air out of the engine bay, not blow cool air in. You can use the TMIC but it won't cool the charged air very effectively.

Yea. I've decided to go with the same IC kit SMAAY used on his 5sfte.
