    Sorry for the delay to your question, If you are still looking I do have 1 set of adapters for cylinder heads and the drive pulley, in the box, for this setup. I have lost interest in the project but might be able to help you out.

    Sorry for the late reply . I would be very interested in the brackets and drive pully. I just bought 2 455 engines yesterday and ready to start this project .

    please update this as you make progress. That's a clean serpentine belt install. Id like to run my AC this way as well.

    The March system is overpriced. IMHO

    I don’t think they’re planning to do anymore of those.

    Ive got the March system, not very happy with the power steering pump, apparently it’s from a sunfire? Not sure if it’s been engineered to turn a big block with air? Its really tough to get the alignment right so you don’t throw the belt. Gordon

    This has been mentioned but seems to be mostly overlooked but the GN setup is basically a bolt-on deal with a very basic bracket made here or there.

    Using the GN setup.. does the water pump spin the right way?

    I can't attest to it 100% as I ran a Meziere WP on my 455 with the GN setup but seem to recall thinking at the time, before deciding to go e-WP, it would work.

    Well that's great to hear! I wonder if the front wheel drive setup for work as well? You know 3800 and such

    Sorry, haven't a clue on the arrangement of the 3800 setup.

    Understand. I'm kind of curious about the turbo Trans-Am serpentine setup I'm curious to know if it's the same as a front-wheel drive as well.

    Added the GN setup to my 430. So far so good
