    One of the most misunderstood and underappreciated components in any automotive drivetrain is the engine accessory drive system. The accessory drive system operates at rotating speeds even higher than the engine’s crankshaft. No matter how well built or powerful your engine may be, the engine accessory drive is its life support system.

    The Vintage Air Front Runner Engine Drive System goes beyond the traditional mounting points on the front of the engine by relocating all accessories onto a component mounting bracket for an integrated mounting approach. By eliminating all mounting points beyond the engine block itself and designing a super-compact component package, any intake, exhaust or cylinder head clearance problem becomes non-existent. With a more compact compressor and alternator, as well as standardizing to a high-performance water pump, Vintage Air created the smallest drive package ever commercially available. With a Front Runner Accessory Drive System, any engine swap will be much easier because of improved clearances all around. Front Runner brackets are designed to become an integral part of your engine’s block, with a solid, totally rigid platform that virtually eliminates the kind of harmonic vibration that can destroy a conventional engine drive bracket.

    Front Runner Engine Accessory Drive Systems are available for:

    • GM LS
    • Small Block Chevy
    • Big Block Chevy
    • Small Block Ford
    • Ford Coyote

    Systems come in a variety of colors and finishes. Each drive system comes as a complete kit for everything you need in a functioning rotating assembly. Be sure to reference the parts checklist on each kit to see every part included in the system.


    174015 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful set up! Thought paying over half of what I paid for the entire crate engine was crazy but after installing this set up I have to admit it is an outstanding product. Beautiful milled parts that fit perfectly. Liked that a new 170 amp alternator was included along with the A/C compressor and a newer style GM PS pump.
