    AP Motorsport have it on their site, price is about right for all that's included. I paid £300 for my racer stuff (bracket, bolts and alternator). However bolts, alternator, tensioner and belt, you can actually use what you have now (as I have done), if you can try to haggle them down and buy less parts.

    Ye I know Alex I just had my alternator and bracket all painted etc and he won’t split. Most of my bits come from him

    2 cheap alternatives.
    1 - gut the aircon pump so you are literally just left with the pulley - I've done this and used on lots of track days now.
    2 - buy a 172/182 crank pulley and use a stretch belt to the alternator, completely removing the alternator setup - I've got this to try, and others have used this setup successfully.

    I did option 2 but using the standard 197 pulley. Just got a belt small enough to go between the pulley and alternator.

    Yeah, I thought about that, but apparently the 1*2 pulley is quite a bit lighter, and adding in rotational mass then I would imagine there are gains to be had.

    Either way, ditching the aircon is a huge benefit.

    Which pulley have you used? As there’s 3 of them I’m seeing I’ve ordered the 4pk810sf belt

    So have you found this reliable? Standard tensioner?

    Yes its been fine. Not the standard tensioner. I did have a expanable link bar on it for the tension but it snapped so I used a thicker metal bar instead.
