back in december when i had my blower i went through 5 belts. i think it was a flawed tensioner unit. who knows though. the first time i snapped it was after the blower was installe dfor like 4 days. luckily i had 4 ribs or so left so i made it home. called JR, he sent a belt under warranty and i bought another just in case. paid 85 bux shipped overnight. those 2 belts snapped the next day. bought another one after i took off and reinstalled the tensioner. that one snapped. so i called up acura and placed an order for an overnight oem belt. that was the end of my charger. sold it on ebay and lost a good 700 bux. lucky me.
