Description

This bracket mounts the Sanden mini compressor “High and Tight” on LS engines with Truck/SUV (1999-2013) and Camaro (2010-15) crank pulley / water pump spacing. The K10291 is a narrow AC bracket that mounts the “mini” Sanden SD7B10 (7176) compressor in front of the passenger’s side cylinder head. The system is driven by one main 6-rib serpentine belt.

This configuration is a perfect solution for 5.3L and 6.0L LS swaps in C10s and OBS trucks. This AC bracket works with your GM alternator/power-steering bracket. This AC bracket also allows you to swap to an LS1/LS2/LS3 low rise intake manifold. All you have to do is modify the GM bracket and add K10618 LS Truck Idler Relocation. Or if you want a really clean install, use our K10611 LS High and Tight Alt/PS (P-series) Bracket.

The K10291 High and Tight AC bracket gives you the space you need to clear air ride slosh tubs and your turbo hot side. This space savings makes it a great candidate for early trucks (pre-1955), Jeeps, and classic street rods (pre-1948).

    Installation Instructions

    FAQs

    Why you should use a Kwik Performance product:

    Properly engineered using OEM reference drawings

    Computer tested with FEA (finite element analysis) software

    Field tested on shop test engines and in real-world test vehicles

    Backed by a no-hassle warranty and return policy

    Tech support before, during and after the sale

    Does the Sanden mini make enough cold air?

    The short answer is yes!

    A proper capacity AC condenser is the real hero keeping you cool when it’s hot out there.

    The few exceptions to this would be 1960’s and later Suburbans and Station Wagons

    Here is where you should start considering the larger compressor

    Why relocate the AC compressor for an LS swap?

    GM made a fantastic engine with the LS design, but they didn’t always put the accessories in the best location for us engine-swapping hotrodders. By locating the AC compressor in front of the passenger side cylinder head you solve the possible fender and frame clearance issues with vehicles such as:

    -Early trucks

    -Chevy Master (1933-42)

    -AK series (1941-47)

    -Advance Design (1947-55)

    Jeeps

    Early street rods (pre 1948)

    Why use a genuine Sanden AC compressor?

    Many OEM AC compressors are a “variable displacement” design and don’t work well with older OEM or aftermarket AC systems

    The OEM compressors have a 4-groove pulley instead of the 6-groove needed when moving the compressor to a higher location.

    Sanden is the aftermarket standard for AC compressors, recommended by most major AC manufacturers
