I designed a new 1/2" aluminium plate and custom mount. Very solid.

Looks pretty close to the valve cover or am I just seeing things?

Its a bit closer than the stock location.. but still room to fit a 90 coupler to input of vortech.

Well either way you shake it, that is some damn nice work!

Lol.. thanks. Its freaking rock solid now with no flexing. And looks a lot cleaner than the bulky standard mount that holds smog pump, alternator and belt tensioner.

I'm running 11lbs, you? I still remember at the Plano meet, your exhaust was making some kind of strange noise. Next thing I know, you craw under it and rip some sort of heat shield off, I laughed for 20min.

Yeah.. my bassani x pipe has gutted cats and the heat shild for one of them was loose cause it drags on speed bumps.. it was ready to come off. Lol

Looks good. About the only thing you can do to stiffen it from there is a bearing brace like the Kurgan one.

Thanks! Yeah I should be good now. If the 6 rib belt doesn't jump around on the 8 rib pulleys . It should be safe to get a new 8 rib belt..

How thick is the stock mounting plate?

man, that's quite a bit thicker. I had a Vortech A / S trim for a while and the bracket would flex pretty good. I had forgotten how thin it was. I ended up making a brace that connected to the front header bolts.
