Default What alternator bracket on race LS motor?

I'm only running an alternator for accessories on a LS1 engine. I need some sort of bracket that is adjustable for belt tension so I don't have to run a long ass belt w stock location tensioner. What's everyone run?

A98ws6- I just looked into the BMR one, $140 for a little bracket! I hope there is other options or I'm making my own.

Mattkatz- I'm trying to use a stock ls1 Camaro alternator if possible.

Bmr works great. I have never had to re tension mine or had a belt come off.

I'm running the truck accessories...well, just an alternator.
I cut the stock truck bracket in half and only run 1 tensioner....7500ish and no issue
here in an unfinished state......

I'm doing the same as this ^ guy on one of my trucks. Bought a few belts until one fit how I wanted.
