I haven't seen any that run all the accessories on a 5litre. You can get them with the power steering notch but you still can't drive the air con. And i'm not even sure it will work because efi windsors run a reverse rotation water pump.

Pump water into the alternator, often it ends up sounding like a Gilmer/super charger sound, "cheap as" just pump the washer bottle water to it. :lol:

Get gear drives if you want the whining sound.

Instead of a timing chain you have gears,or a gear(havent seen a 5.0 one in the flesh) that link the cam and crank.

i would recomend against running a gear drive on a street car, the noise is cool.. but they transfer undesirable harmonics into the valve train. as the crank spins it doesnt spin smootly, it shakes with the force of each combustion event.. with a gear drive there is no allowance for this non uniform motion to be taken up by a chain or a belt, and it is transfered directly into the cam and onto the lifters etc..
