Looks good, some nice upgrades there!

Are you running ac with the RS2? Have you got any pictures of how the alternator brackets are attached to the engine block?

Hi mate and yes running ac still and I think I have some I’ll attach I am planning on getting the ac delete kit from pms next year.
With the ac you have the remove the support bar and grind away abit of the tab on the top bracket. Also use a nut and bolt on the hole which connects the top bracket to the block

Thank you!

I take it you mean the bolt I've circled in your picture in red?

Do you know if the other side of the top bracket is bolted to the block as well? From where I've circled in yellow towards the block with the yellow arrow?


I've just reinstalled the ac in my car with eman RS2 and there wasn't a lot of info available hence interested in how yours is installed before you remove it!
