How tight should the belt be on the supercharger. Will having it too tight hurt proformance?

If its too tight you will put excessive load on your pulley bearings and water pump bearings, not good. Tension the belt as the instructions say.

Correct per above; do not overtighten, this will put excessive wear on the bearings..But do make sure it is per JR spec..The directions have detailed instructions on belt tensioning, so we don't have to type all in a post..just follow the directions, especially on tensioning a brand new belt..
