    Torqstorm goes on drivers side and it takes up lots of space.

    yes, but hes only got 2/3rds of an engine in there
    i would try to keep the powersteering pump in the stock spot, because of the hoses (not that you cant have new hoses made)
    and move the alternator to wherever it fits

    With my torqstorm I have my alternator. You may be able to keep the power steering but not the a/c. I would never say no 100%.

    I wonder if it would be possible to flip the alternator 180 degrees ?
    This would place the tail end of if towards the radiator, instead of the firewall, but you could maybe run it nose to nose with the A.C.?

    I'm not sure all the work to do this is worth it in the end and from the pics I've seen of the slant with a Torqstorm I'm not sure PS stays in place .
