With headers, you're going to have to buy a bracket to mount the alternator on the left side. The bracket, if I remember correctly, bolts to the two front exhaust holes.

Most all the header manufacturers make a mounting bracket for the alternator with headers. Here's an offering from Summit.

I saw some header style alternator brackets for a sbc at Auto Zone the other day.... You have to buy three pieces to make it work....one piece bolts to the front two header bolts on the drivers side...the other piece is adjustable and bolts to that piece...the third piece is the piece that braces the alt. and adjusts the tension.
