Ended up going the less expensive route and picked up a new 1.8t alternator, tensioner and bracket. I shaved the bracket down to the bare minimum and painted it. Will still need to reroute upper coolant pipe

Well, bought the bracket, shaved it and made it beautiful for nothing. Went to test fit today and found out the DI fuel rail interferes with the bracket. Tried modifying it to clear, but I would have to take too much material off of it. I have a spare FSI bracket, will have to modify it instead.

Nice to see its not only me that has these minor setbacks but glad you got it sorted. Its all trial and error. Ive mounted my catch can in where the expansion tank sat. Ive got some pics if that will help convince you?

Cool thread, I'm usually never in here but I stumbled across this somehow. Quick question: what brake booster is that? It looks a lot thinner than the stock one.
