This is how I had mine set up and it was barely hitting the frame where the steering rack mounts, had to beat it in a little to clear the pulley.

^ is this alternator locatio accessable from under the car? say you needed to change the alt out, can you take it off from under the car verses up top?

I can't mentally picture what the stock bracket looks like, which part needs to be modded/grinded?

I am not sure how much it helps but this mod would also move more weight towards the middle of the car.

no not really, it's tight and would have to be pulled from the top.

^ would the air intake manifold have to come off in order to replace it through the top? imo if i was to do this i would just invest in a new alt and then replacing it wouldnt be much of a worry.

if you look at it you can see where it is smoother...this would be where it was ground down.....if i get a chance ill dig out my stock bracket and get a pic of it to use as a before one...but if you have yours you can just compare them and it will make sense.
