I just bought a B&M 174 roots supercharger. but it turns out that the alternator bracket and the belt tensioner on late model 5.0 get in the way of the drive housing of the blower.
I know holley sells a kit to fix this, but is necessary to buy other brackets from Ford.
Does anybody know of another way to do this?

you have to carve the factory bracket for clearance - there is a paper template supplied with the blower serpentine kit- you cant use the factory tensioner ---- in the holley serpentine adapter kit there is a list of stuff to get -- the tensioner stuff required is really common in the junk yard - v6 mustang/taurus -- it takes a LOT of fiddling, carving,head scratching,shimming to get it perfect - but works good when done -- it is still a pain to adjust the belt tension -- - when itsall said and done - the instant boost is waaay cool - makes it feel like a big block --
