8 rib conversion 98 cobra

I’ve been following some older threads on DIY 8 rib conversion using parts for a navigator. I ordered all the parts from the thread.
Item (Ford motorcraft P/n) 4.6L 8-Rib Conversion Pulleys Name Ford Part Number Cost Alternator pulley GP-720 $20.84 Power steering pulley XL3Z-3A733-AA $16.63 A/C Clutch pulley YB-522 $71.48 Tensioner 1L3Z-6B209-AA $42.30 Crank pulley XL3Z-6312-CA $60.82 Idler pulley YS-250 $19.66 Water pump pulley F6TZ-8509-AA $18.05
I’m having multiple problems getting everything to fit. First off the tensor listed, the boot holes don’t line up. I understand going 8 rib all the pull-ups will be wider but nothing seems to fit not even close. You can see the comparison of parts how different they are. Does anyone have any pointers in getting the 8 rib set up besides ordering a $600+ kit? This is a 98 cobra
