Default Accessory drive.. Which one?

Hi!
I have purchased a ls1 from corvette 04. I'm looking for accessory drive or experience about it.
Have been looking at this:https://www.holley.com/products/ls_p...s/parts/20-143

Anyone using that? Like those like concept one and such but that kind of money is not what I have in mind.

It seems like the alternator is getting really "far out" from the engine here though on the Holley kit. Looks not that good.

Also been thinking of doing brackets my self. I have a couple of skilled friends working in cad and cnc but then I need something to start with.

Any suggestions or inspiration?

What car are you putting the engine in? You may be able to use factory GM brackets to make the kit you have on the engine already work. We do it all the time for LS conversions just need to know what car you are doing to see if we have a fitment of part numbers for it.

The Holley kit is basically the same as the C5/C6 Corvette accessory drive except it uses the less expensive truck style alternator. I am using it on my Cougar and with some creativity, you can make it look good.

Pretty much what I am running. Jim will spray it black to match the engine bay. It's a decent looking and affordable option.

Andrew that's a sick picture. Post a few more of the car will you.

Here is a nice kit from Pace Performance.


http://paceperformance.com/i-6485404...6-engines.html

You could also source the parts from Rock Auto except the power steering bracket, they can be purchased on eBay.

You already have the vette balancer, so the CTS accessory drive will work.

That's look really good! Thanks! Will look closer to that.. I would like to have the alternator on the bottom like that but as far as I can see almost everyone is having them on top at driver sides.

T,
Do you know if this will work in a f body 67? Does it have room to have the alternator placed like that? If so it looks like the kit I will get!
Asked the tech support at pace p. also and they would get back.
