When it comes to non-intercooled the thing is you have to be comfortable with high IAT's. However you'll really never know just how high they are since the temp is taken before the TB and the E85 is helping cool that intake charge right as it enters the combustion chamber. Some people get really nervous about the high IAT's but I haven't seen any issues due to it. I've been told the high IAT's will put the engine on the edge but a month ago I had a bad day at the track and forgot to switch on my second fuel pump. From the 330' mark on I was at 14.5/1 AF at 20.5lbs of boost, 160% cycle duty and didn't even melt a plug. That should have melted any engine.

What size cowl are you using, and how much clearance? I'm doing almost the exact same build just in a new edge.

I was reading back through your thread. Just curious, why did you move the alternator up top?

My truck engine came with the alternator up top. I put a different bracket on to pull it in closer but that's it. I didn't want to drill the block to move it down low as it would just be in the way for my turbo set up later down the road.

Oh ok, I saw this picture and thought you had ran it down low originally

That was me initially experimenting with a turnbuckle but it wasn't stable enough and I found that billet mounting bracket for up top so I moved it.

I replaced the 5.0L in my Volvo with a new crate LS3. I used the ICT Billet low mount alternator bracket, an Alan Groves low mount A/C bracket and a Caddy CTS-V power steering mount. These were all for Corvette crank pulley spacing, but I believe they make them for F-body and truck spacing as well.

They do, and I looked at that, however since my car will mostly be a strip car with skinnies I will be deleting the powersteering, looking at the picture above the bracket jus moved the alternator down a tad, which is what I want to be able to close the hood. Nice set up tho
