Welp, it took a long time and a couple of tries, but all the crank driven accessories are mounted! Still need to grind and weld, cut, lighten and prettify, but the belt is mounted and the auto-tensioner has room for stretching:

That is one wicked looking engine!!!

I remember your twin turbo dream a couple years ago...has now turned into reality. That is really cool!

...and I thought finagling my brackets to fit up a Delco Remy alternator was a nightmare!......... ::

Because who has 2 grand to drop on a supercharger? The turbos only cost me $200 and then figure in another $500 in parts max. The turbos will make more power, be more reliable, and more gas-milage friendly.
