Truck intake, truck alternator 145amp with no issues. Trim the hood support is all that was needed on mine. STS mounts in a 240

LS6 intake - clears the fat aluminum strut bar with plenty of room.
Corvette accessories - tucked down nice and low - didn't touch the hood. And shorter around the front end of the engine.

I basically had a bare front end of an engine to work with though. The main pulley was chipped, the truck water pump had a bent pulley, and the accessories were gone. And the tensioner felt 'dry'. So the only usable part I didn't use was the truck bracketry on the driver's side.

If you *really* want to spend money, Holley has a neat waterpump that has all the accessory brackets built into it. I think that's about as snug of a layout as you'll find.

I used ict's stuff. got the f-body location brackets with truck spacing (not 100% sure why really, probably the crank pulley and a/c compressor stuff). running a 2010 vvt camaro water pump (puts the outlet on the driver's side and has correct spacing for serp belt).

I used Dirty Dingo alternator relocation bracket. Swapped the alternator to high and p.s. to low position and kept all the stock truck accessories.

There's a somewhat local 2002 with a hole in the hood for the throttle (or maybe even choke) cables on its four motorcycle carbs. It's incredible.

I got a ICT kit on the way with a Camaro waterpump, Corvette power steering, etc.

There is a pic floating around the internet of a guy who cut a hole in the hood for 4 alternators...

The only change I had to do with my Corvette setup was to relocate the PS reservoir. It stuck out in front of everything else, and I needed that space for the cold side intake piping.

how do you setup the drive by wire throttle position sensor on the OEM volvo throttle pedal?

You don't. You get a pedal and pedal computer from the car/truck the engine is from. I have no idea how comparable they are with each other.

yeah, you wouldn't, you'd mount the gm pedal where the volvo pedal attaches. never paid much attention on a 240, but in a 740 the gas pedal bolts to the floor already anyway, so it wouldn't be a big deal. probably not a big deal in a 240 either for the same reasons.

Super easy. I welded a piece of flat stock to the bottom of a 2004 avalanche dbw pedal and drilled two holes that matched with the holes in the firewall. Been driving dbw for 5 years now with out issues.

I even did a dbw setup in my 1973 Chevy C20 swap using a chevy 96' diesel pedal. Just had to swap one wire in the harness. Its nice being able to get away from an idle valve and having a throttle cable flung through the engine bay.
