    Not much helps. We do not bend 6061. Even some other 5000 series we had did not work.

    What did you make those from? I'm guessing you probably used 1010 CRS or similar.

    Having a fabrication shop your disposal is got to be totally awesome. I have a great appreciation for machining, fabrication and the like...

    I'm a project engineer for a injection molding & manufacturing company. I manage and oversee molds and tooling builds for various projects.

    Someday I'd love to have a machine shop in my garage...

    These are made from what I call "red metal." A36. I think! It's steel like, right? Magnetic. Pretty strong. Aluminum can be frustratingly weak - you have to know what you're doing. I'll throw my computer holder I just made for my desk up here in a bit.

    I fell ass backwards into this job. I was miserable and was fired from my old job with 6 weeks severance, 4 weeks later started a block away at this place. Now I am headed to the stratosphere, look forward to heading into work every day to do as much as I possibly can. We move an unreal amount of metal every week, it's quite the challenge.

    Does the alt come with those standoffs?

    Well the new alternator is now in for good... I'm glad that's out of the way.

    Now I can put on the new larger blower pulley and install the belt. I had a 2.75 pulley which was producing about 20 lb of boost. I made a 3 in and a 3.25. I think the 3-inch should be a good start...

    How did you manage 20 lbs of boost...with only a 2.75" (69.85 mm) pulley....on a Roush TVS-2300 blower ??
    Did you use a 12% lower ? What pulley did the oem Roush blower come with...how much boost ?

    Yes I'm running a ATI 918018 which is 12% over driven. That with a 2.75 inch pulley produced a tad over 20 psi According to my gauge.. The blower has a VMP elbow and it's been ported. I thought 20ish was a bit excessive I'd like to be around 17ish...

    So...I just installed a DOB alternator.

    Roush now sells just the bracket for $37.00 shipped. So I ordered that.

    Found the hex-standoffs on Amazon...stainless...M5x0.8x17MM...

    Found the bolts at Lowes (M5x.80x12MM socket hex cap screws in stainless)

    So then I go to put it on the DOB Denso...and it doesn't work. The orientation of the bracket doesn't fit.

    I fixed mine caveman style: Grind paint off Roush bracket. Get MIG welder. Fill Roush mounting holes. Grab sheet metal. Weld extension onto Roush bracket. Mock up. Stick nail polish on standoffs to press against bracket to mark where to drill. Drill holes. Wipe nail polish off. Paint bracket semi gloss black. Install.

    Done.

    I like the paper version the best. Cardboard Assisted Drafting.

    Why could this not be done for a Saleen blower? I hate the ass backwards alt setup on mine. Limited space, belt length, maybe hood clearance are things that come to mine.
