Alright so here is a update/review/pictures of the Jay racing alternator relocation kit.
91 galant vr4
evo 3 motor (7 bolt)
Jay racing 1g gm/alternator kit in aluminum.
First I must say that Jay has responded to all of my emails very quickly and has been very helpful through this whole process, great guy. I ordered the product and it arrived very well packaged in just a few days with standard shipping, the kit did not come with any instructions but it is pretty self explanatory once you start putting everything together.
First I decided to do a quick mock up on a spare 6 bolt motor that I have laying just to make sure I was putting everything together right. I found out after putting it on my actual motor that if you are using a GM alternator the adjustable rod needs to sit on the passenger side of the bracket as you will see in the later pictures.
Next I mounted everything to my actual motor (note that tensioner is on the wrong side for the GM alt in this picture).
Next was the fun part of trying to squeeze the alternator passed the intake manifold which I did not want to remove.
After finally getting the alternator behind the motor I used a cup (race car) lug nut (just slightly smaller than the included spacer) since I didnt want to hammer/clearance my frame rail), note that you should install the belt over the alternator before putting this spacer in. Also I placed the spacer on the driver side of the bracket so that I could use the water pump pulley.
After realizing I had the tensioner on the wrong side I moved it over and bolted it up to the alternator.
Then I realized the belt was too long so after playing around with a few different belts I finally found the "perfect" belt. (5040413)
The 5040413 belt was a really tight fit to get on, I almost had to remove the water pump pulley but I was able to push on it hard enough sideways for it to finally slip on. After getting the belt on I had to adjust the tensioner to its limits to reach/tension the belt...I would have liked a little more adjustment (longer rod) but it seems to be sturdy and nothing moved/squealed when revving the engine so overall I am happy with kit.
You can also see how close the alternator sits to the chassis and why I decided to give myself a little more room although with a hammer the included spacer would have worked just fine.
Lastly this kit works alot better then my prior "rigged" gm/saturn alternator adapter bracket which was ugly and held the alternator at a slight angle causing squealing.....Again I am happy with my purchase and the aesthetics (comparatively) is worth the money in it self...not to mention the exteneded life of the alternator and finally being able to easily route my external wastegate dump pipe.
