Default Reversed Intake Manifold

Im getting ready to do this and all I'm TRYING to do is relocate my alternator to where my AC Compressor was... I'm about ready to throw a brick through my window. The only thread I can find that explains it has no pictures on how to bolt the alternator in so It's a confusing mess. Anyone?

Reverse Thread I was reading ( http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=807772 )

You need to grind away material from the A/C bracket so the alternator can flip over to the other side of the bracket where the compressor used to sit. Then you need to fabricate a way to tension the belt. You also need a longer belt.

If this is beyond your capabilities, you should just raise the intake manifold on spacers and lower the alternator with a shorter belt. Then you can run the piping over the alternator in it's standard location.

Well the compressor froze up and I already took it out, I see how to mount one side by grinding it off but the other side to make tensioning still work drives me insane. Te thread I read says you can use all the stock parts?? I just don't get WTF it's talking about

I used the black bracket that was on the drivers side of the ac compressor. Had to bend and cut it a bit and bolted on a 90 degree piece. I used the part that holds the alternator to the bracket in its stock location to attach a bolt to to bring it up and tension the belt.

If you look close you can see what i did in this pic

I no longer have that setup since I recently did a motor swap. Luckily I still had the parts laying around. I hope this is helpful:

I think I will finish this project right after my clutch is fixed. If I'm gonna go all custom piping to the IC does anyone know of a good low price / high quality front mount I might be able to buy alOne??
