The performance industry standard has always been to hang the accessories such as alternator, power steering pump and air conditioner compressor from the engine’s existing mount holes wherever possible using simple flat steel brackets. These conventional brackets can limit the choices of intake systems, exhaust options, and make deck-height machining problematic. That is what the Front Runner drive systems are all about, by eliminating all mounting points beyond the engine block itself and designing a super-compact component package, we now overcome any intake, exhaust or cylinder head option problems. By specifying a more compact compressor and alternator, plus standardizing to a high-performance water pump, we create the smallest drive package ever available. The bonus to you is making your engine swap much easier because of improved clearances all around. And the final, and most important benefit, is that Front Runner brackets are designed to become an integral part of your engine’s block. A solid, totally rigid platform that virtually eliminates the kind of harmonic vibration that can destroy a conventional engine drive bracket.
