Did you route the belt correctly?
Do you need a belt routing diagram?

SO the water pump must be driven by the timing belt.
Wait... it looks like it is driven by the supercharger
Mayabe there is a huge air pocket in the cooling system.
You will have to bleed the system. With the engine cold take off the radiator cap and start the motor. as the engine warms up, keep the coolant topped off. the cap should be the highest point int cooling system. If not there will be a bleeder screw that you can open to let out air. Here is a hint, Turn on the heat when the engine is warm, if it is blowing cold, than there is a huge air pocket and the system.
hmm.. well damn it man.. do you think the powersteering is powered by the alt?
Description and operation
A DC motor, capable of drawing a maximum current of 120 Amperes , but running at an average 11.5 Amperes , powers the system. In standby mode with the engine running but the vehicle stationary the draw is 7.0 Amperes (+ / - ) 10%.
There are two modes of operation for the EHPS: no steering assistance and steering assistance.
With the engine running and no steering assistance required the pump operates at approximately 80% capacity at a speed of 3,500 rpm . Movement of the steering changes the hydraulic pressure within the circuit which in turn effects the operation of the pump, this is identified at the control electronics by the increase in current, the pump speed is increased to 4,500 rpm and now operates at full capacity.
