Dis connect the battery, remove the belt, 2 15mm bolts at the back of alt next to the firewall, 2 bolts at the bottom front of alt. Unplug the voltage regulator, remove the 13mm bolt at the B+ terminal. The alt should be loose.(Here is the good part)to get the alt out and past the upper intake you have to loosen the 2 bottom cradle bolts about 4-6 inches and drop the cradle down to allow enough room to sneak the alt out, if you don't want to drop the cradle down you have to remove the upper intake manifold. The choice is yours. You do have to be careful dropping you do not want to get hurt. Post back with any other questions.
