OK, got the 3800SC "into" the 87 GT, I had to cut away about 1/2" off the bottom of the pass side trunk hinge. But , problem is: the supercharger Idle "pulley" is still touching the "Torque ROD" for that hinge ! Do I have to "LOSE" that torque rod ?? What have you other guys done about that ? and I did end up "raising" the floor of the trunk about 6" for room for the Muffler (1995Firebird). also, the 87 GT, only has 1 Heater Hose that" attaches to the Engine", (the other is "T" into the lower cooling hose. which "outlet" on the engine do I use for the 1 heater hose?? Thanks
using Fieroflyer mounts (Altered GP I think he said) with stock 2.8 rubber mount, and stock tensioner. sit level, and clears everything else. are you thinking the mount is too Tall ? I'd post pictures, but PIP keeps saying my pictures are too large, and I can't figure how to make them smaller.
On the few that I have done, the passenger side lift strut had to be removed but the drivers side barely cleared on autos and interfered on stick installs. With the 4T65eHD, all was good until the SSIC went on. On no install did the hinge bracket need to be trimmed.

Sorry didn't really read through but... I know I had to swap my Bonnie S/C belt tensioner for a Grand Prix one I believe. Maybe same for buicks? I removed the torsion rods but never had to cut anything else...
