    I’m LS swapping my 80 Trans am with shaker hood. I plan to go carb and I have a 5.3 truck engine ( 2 actually a 12 and a 03) both with accessories drives. Will either one of these fit under the stock hood? If not are there any aftermarket brackets that do drop the alternator enough to clear. I like the look of the aftermarket better anyway. Thanks.

    There are places that sell alternator relocating kits. Take a look and compare your current drive

    depending on the frame mounts you use, may determined if you can use the truck brackets.
