      Ok use the power steering on the v-belt and keep the water pump crank ,alternator & G60 on the serpentine belt.
      I am not sure which length you need but if you can wrap string around the set up and take that length to Napa I am sure they can give you the belt in the right length.

      Ok, Issam, I'll do that. Thanks!

      I'll be driving up to Nate as soon as my Rado is reliable enough to make the trip, sometime this month hopefully! We'll do a quick test fit with the spacer to see if it fits in the bay.
      This is the clearance with the spacer

      Working as fast as my schedule allows...


      I was thinking about making a spacer as well. how are you bracing the back of the manifold? worried with the extra lever arm and no support that the top half could break ? if leaned on or something.

      break out the welder... and make new supports for the back of the manifold? the stock ones are just steel anyway... i think i made mine out of some 1/2" x 1/8" flat-bar..

      it may not be *necessary*.. but it's a darn good idea..
      if you're good, you can use flat-bar, and drill & bend it to fit... make a cardboard template, then go to town.

      So what are the options for mounting an alternator under the charger.
      -That one guy is selling a kit for 300 120 amp
      -aba alt? Mine seems to need heavy modification to one of the tabs under the charger to fit.
      -Suzuki samari? anyone have any pictures of this?
      -70 amp polo alternator. I need something more powerful then this.

      I think this one might be an option. And I only say that because someone in the classifieds was selling one and claimed that they had it mounted underneath.

      Ya ive been digging around for alternators and it seems like that one is a gm upgrade alt for the samurai. The Samurai one is only 55 amp so most people upgrade to that gm one and it fits and you have the option for 105 amp and even higher.
      I emailed a guy selling them on ebay and he says the mounting pad is 2" long, so then I measured my g60 bracket and it looks like you would have to push out that metal bushing and also grind about 1/4" off the alternator to get it to drop right in.
      Here you can see the mounting pad on the bottom

      And here is the measurement for the bracket

      from the kit the guy sells here on the vortex you need your g60 alt pulley to make it work.
      Actually his looks slightly different "CS130 Delco alternator"

      I am a fan of the TB spacer option, maybe I skimmed a bit too lightly, but is everyone sure that the TB will clear the hood (MK2 or 'rado)?
      Thanks!

      That spacer is .440". I measured a .190" height increase. Using trig., I estimated the rearward shift:

      I just finished reading this entire thread...lets see four nights and one afternoon is all it took to really absorb just about all this info. Really really good stuff. And hopefully all you "pros" are still watching it. I just started my build with a 9a and two G60's and want to know if anyone is selling any integration kits, or parts of integration kits??? BBM/RPM/etc. or custom hardware?
      Issam I didn't quite understand, is your alt kit only for down low AC delete??
      Thanks guys.... Bump this thread!!!

      Got my spacer yesterday

      Still undecided if I really need to run this...
      Im half tempted to run a early 1.8l 16v tb housing and run a 1.8t DV hidden somewhere.
      anyone run a bov or a DV?

      hey guys...on my 16v g60 motor...to run a boost gauge - I'm supposed to tap into the vacuum line that goes from FPR to intake manifold correct? Can someone post some pics of this? Specifically where on the intake manifold the vacuum line connects?
