This is the alternator I used with my Holley kit. Mounts in the same place so I would assume it should work.

Steven, pretty sure that bracket is from the 04-08 Cadillac CTSV (pre LSA engines). Would use that alternator.

Re: Help with alternator purchase

thanks fellas.
i really do hate how far out these brackets put the alternator. that midmount kit looks soo much better. another option would be a low mount driver/pass side alt i would have to measure clearance on the speedtech subframe
