I think I can't go high enough without hitting the intake. Maybe I'll take a second look and see if there's a place for it though, I was originally going to have my intake come straight out over the steering box but I've decided now it's going angled toward the fender. That might open up a hole.

The good news is that I've done some shopping and found dozens of options for alternators that should fit and have plenty of amperage. The Volvo alternator is actually really huge, 6" diameter. It seems most are smaller than that. Anything 5" or smaller should work and fit down next to the steering box. I plan to go junkyarding on Friday so maybe I'll find something there as well.
