I am intersted in your setup, mainly the 2 brackets as I already have the dogbone mount. How much for all of it w/o the dogbone mount? And also, did you just freeze plug the intake manifold and waterpump? So your not running heater core lines?

What exactly is included in the $150? (how many pieces?) If it includes the dogbone mount that would be awesome, but I just want to check first...

the dogbone mount is a factory gtp head bracket. parts are as follows-- two front alt brackets 1 rear - idler bracket and bushing for grooved idler. idler bracket is slotted for adjustment of belt. works very well, It took some time to design although it looks simple. i like things clean. I will check into the series 1 I have a core im building the headers on for series 1 the headers will be avalible in 3 to 4 weeks for series 1. here is my series 2 headers.

Thanks for the info. I didn't recognise the dogbone bracket, because I have Buick parts.. I do want a low-mount alternator (was going to do PS at some point, but who am I kidding? I have enough just to get the engine done!!) and will definitely keep this in mind. I also love the headers, but I've already set up a "cut trunk in half" exhaust with stock manifolds, so I can fit in as much muffler as possible. (2 mufflers and a cat, resonated tips) Want it to be as quiet as possible. <<sleeper>>

This guy is very very good. His bracket setup is awesome. I would have bought it but I had made plans with Purple Reign already. I must say though the guy's products for the 3800 is just plain awesome. Definitely recommend him to everyone, nothing but good things.

Doh! I just realized my alternator doesn't look like that... It doesn't have the 2 tabs that the top bracket fits into, only 3 single tabs around the outside.. 2 short ones and one long. I think I figured out a way to mount the one I have though, hope it works. I wouldn't mind buying both the brackets and a new alternator (good chance to powder coat a new one to keep it clean), but that's a *wee* bit out of the budget, which is already shot to crap.
