+1 on what GR3GA said...

Considering what a turbo and the components required for it to work have to go through, going cheap may have you end up with an engine that has bits of turbo in it.

Unless it's from a reputable manufaturer, etc.

Also, moving the battery would depend on where the turbo's are going to sit... I've seen some installations where the turbos sit low down in the engine bay and then the battery could by all means remain where it is.

Good luck with this... also... have a look around the ls1 forum... they have alot of information on this sort of stuff.

those manifolds won't work with LS1, as they are chev 350 spacing not LS1, which is similar to 308, so in short don't buy this as these manifolds won't fit LS1
