Here’s a gift idea for that Chevy LS engine swap enthusiast. It’s attractive, it’s functional, and best of all, it’s affordable. It’s a serpentine bracket system that solves clearance issues around frames, crossmembers, and steering gears of most muscle cars and classic pickups. The Kwik Performance bracket system mounts a popular aftermarket A/C compressor and reuses stock GM alternators and power steering pumps. Versions to match almost all LS engine series, starting at less than $200.
