Default 5.3 vortec swap

Hey guys, I'm currently building a 5.3 vortec with flat top diamonds, and I ran into a problem with the brackets, so I decided to modify the brackets, and make my own, I figured I share them On the left is another bracket from the right side, just cut down to San alternator mount, and using an old-school alternator tenisonerOn the right where the Alternator would go from fsctofaon the V8 I will mount the stock Blazer ac compressor, and use the factory ac lines just to save some headaches, please let me know what you think or if you have anything suggestions

I want to see it in the truck.
Then I want to see it stomp the guts out of something with FORD written on it.

That's the plan, the only problem is the weak g80 rear

Default More parts, I got a efan controller from "Radiator Entropy"

It is very high quality and is enclosed, I'm hoping it works good, and I will be using a 3 core S10 radiator until I can get a full aluminum one

I plan to use Dodge intrepid efans, just because my junk yard has more intreprids than tarus's

Here is the eBay part number 392080193163
And the manufacturer part number is FCO1 the only problem is that I found out that is come with the wrong size thermostat, so make sure you get a Chevy style one, AND the best part of this kit is it allows you to wire wi into the pcm or leave it stand alone if you want.
