Default how to convert your LQx LMx to use an LS1 Alternator bracket

ok guys i got my LQ9 and i wanted to use an LS1 intake and all that stuff but then i got my bracket and i noticed the whole wasn't there for the alternator.

(barrowed this picture from another site.)
So i said well the spot is there why not make the whole. I was scared to death to do it but if i wanted to use the ls1 intake and all that good stuff so here are the tools you will need
a drill
i used 3 bits one small for the pilot hole one a little bit bigger and then an 11/32 bit
a 10x1.50 plug tap


So what i did was bolted the bracket on with the bottom bolt
and lined it up



I took a very pointy pencil and lined it up in the center


once i marked it i measured how much i needed to drill

and once i did that i used some tape to mark the bits so i knew how much i needed to drill


i didnt picture this but i drilled with a smaller bit first then a medium size bit then the 11/32 bit needed to tap the whole


once i got that done i tapped the whole with the 10x 1.5 tap


and then ended cleaned it with an air compressor and cleared out the and made sure nothing was left in there. here is what i ended up with


hope this will help everyone later on!

Should be fixed Shaun. If you ever want to change the title I am pretty sure that you can do it by going to "edit" then scrolling down and go to "advanced". In the advanced section it should let you edit the title.
