The Header Power Bracket offers other advantages to the enthusiast:
> Close Mounts the Alternator
The Header Power Bracket "close-mounts" the alternator pulling
it in toward the centerline of the car providing additional outboard space when mounting the accessory. This also reduces polar moment and in the more typical left-hand placement, moves the weight of the alternator closer to the right rear wheel.
> Uses Shorter Belt
It also allows for the use of a shorter belt, reducing belt "whipping" and the chances of throwing the belt.
> Retains Existing Alternator Position
A matched billet aluminum spacer is also offered. This will move the alternator out 1" from the centerline, to where most others put
it, allowing you to retain your existing belt while adding a level of style to your engine never seen in a header-mount system before.
> Retains Existing Hardware
Unlike some other designs that require a complete change out of bracketry, the Header Power Bracket allows the user to retain
much of the existing set-up including the factory (or aftermarket)
J-Bar and Lower Alternator Mount (F-Bracket). This can result in a substantial savings to the user over other aftermarket assemblies. If you don't already have these pieces, they may be obtained through Summit Racing Products at reasonable cost.
> Polishes to a High Luster
The aluminum spacers can be obtained in a satin finish or
polished to a high luster. This is the first time that billet aluminum has been offered in a header-mount system.
