Pace Performance Releases The Back-To-Basics LS Drive System

With the late model engine swap craze in full swing, the LS series engines have been appealing to a large array of enthusiasts all wanting something a little bit different. The downside to this popular swap is the occasional experience of difficulty when fitting the all-aluminum mills into their cars thanks to the unique serpentine belt configuration. Thankfully, Pace Performance has stepped up to the plate, offering their customers the “Back to Basics” alternator-only serpentine drive systems. Available in either the one-wire alternator kit, or the Corvette-style 150 amp kit, both of which utilize Powermaster starter motors.

Official Release:

These Pace Exclusive LS engine alternator only drive systems are just the ticket for LS swaps into vehicles without A/C and power steering. Full race, off road, muscle cars, t-buckets, etc. These are designed for use with LS engines with Corvette balancer and water pump.


  • HD 6061-T6 aluminum, ultra-high pressure water jet cut brackets
  • Zinc coated fasteners
  • GM Performance belt tensioner and bolts
  • Powermaster 150amp alternator
  • Heavy Duty alternator harness pigtail
  • 6 rib serpentine belt
