Thank yall. For any one looking in the future, now that I've installed the Vortech... Unless you want to spend time and aggravation to get no where, just buy the delete with the threaded hole (i.e. not the ford one). The way vortech mounts the alternator and the smog pump forces you to have the brace with a smog pump or delete set up. Otherwise nothing connects the two which means you can not get belt tension since you have no fixed pulley location on the alternator and smog.
I'm sure it's possible to modify a delete such as the ford one, however if you're looking for bolt on and go just get the UPR, or ASP style.
