06 Duratec Alternator Relocation?

Anyone know of a set of brackets that will move the alternator to the front of the engine compartment instead of the back?

I've already wrapped the down pipe and made a heat shield for the alternator. Neither have helped the issue. Instead of going crazy and cutting a hole in my hood for air flow i'd like to move the alternator to the front of the engine bay if possible.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

I just happened to recall this kit. I know zero details or if they ship to the US, but might help.

Well that's an option. Anyone know if the setup from a speed 3 duratec will work on the focus duatec? I'd like to keep my power steering and a/c since I'm in Texas and its a DD.

The only way I could see that working is if you use the electric power steering pump from Mazda, and that is only if you can make the alternator fit where the power steering pump was. I suspect the alt might be wider than the PS pump.

The electric pump would be a cool install. It's probably a little more than I want to do though. I'll probably end up putting a blanket on the turbo and coating the manifold.
