GM LT & LS Engines - Vintage Air Cast Front Runner

Vintage Air Cast Front Runner for GM LT & LS Engines

The kit includes a 6061-T6 billet aluminum water pump, crankshaft and power steering pulleys, ATI balancer, Mechman 170-amp hairpin-style alternator, Detroit Speed aluminum-body power steering pump, and a genuine Sanden A/C compressor.

Vintage Air, a manufacturer of complete performance air conditioning systems for classics, trucks, hot rods, and street rods, has announced the release of its all-new Cast Front Runner drive system for GM LT1 and LS engines. The new Cast Front Runner provides a simple and more compact solution for mounting front drive accessories to LT1 and LS engine-equipped vehicles.

The Cast Front Runner systems for LT1 and LS engines are made in the USA from precision-cast A356-T6 alloy aluminum with passages engineered for optimal coolant flow. The billet-aluminum cartridge-type water pump features OEM bearings, seals and impeller. This system is the shortest and most compact front-drive system available, which provides more package space for electric fan modules and accessories. Additionally, the low-profile casting clears OEM and most aftermarket throttle bodies without a wedge spacer. The Front Runner drive system improves the aesthetics of the engine and reduces its overall package envelope.

All castings are pressure-checked to ensure zero porosity, and no modifications are required to install the OEM timing solenoid or OEM temperature sending unit. The cast housing incorporates both side and bottom exit NPT-tapped heater hose outlets, providing multiple options for increased suspension and frame clearance.

The kit includes a 6061-T6 billet aluminum water pump, crankshaft and power steering pulleys, ATI balancer, Mechman 170-amp hairpin-style alternator, Detroit Speed aluminum-body power steering pump, and a genuine Sanden A/C compressor. Compressor clutch and tensioner covers are also included, along with ARP 12-point stainless steel bolts and hardware.

The Vintage Air Cast Front Runner systems for GM LT1 and LS engines are available in power steering or non-power steering configurations and several finish options: polished accessories with chrome pulleys, chrome accessories and pulleys, natural-finish accessories with black hard coat pulleys, or chrome accessories with black hard coat pulleys.

Vintage Air Front Runners are proudly made in the USA, come with all parts necessary for a complete installation, and include three-year warranty against manufacturer defects. For more information: www.vintageair.com or call 800-862-6658.
