yeah i dont see much of a discernible difference either... i guess its just the new material and different bolts... hopefully that will be enough!

What meet are you talking about? I haven't been to any meets in a long time. I'm waiting for a 3.4" pulley to get it tune by Doug.lanman2000 said:ç
i got the UPS shipping notification yesterday and it says its to be delivered today .... either way i´m gone in Europe right now until Oct.1st so... i´ll post pics when i get back .. it will be waiting for me.
then i´m going to install JR race header, the new tensioner and then hit the tuner again. 300hp here i come!
btw, what meets and stuff do you go to? I wanna see your setup on the base.... :bow:
I don't think so, I just looked through the box with old stuff they just took out and I didn't see that part.i VieTEC said:Does the kit come with a new one of this? I need one sooner or later from all the wear of changing belts.
:iamwiths:i VieTEC said:Why do you guys take it to the shop just to replace the tensioner? You can save alot of money by doing it yourself and it only takes 1/2 hour max
Because I have a great Mech that does all this extra work for freei VieTEC said:Why do you guys take it to the shop just to replace the tensioner? You can save alot of money by doing it yourself and it only takes 1/2 hour max
Same here, except mine's not free. I just wanted to make sure everything was aligned since I make two 200 mile trips each week and I don't want to get stuck in the middle of nowhere. :jigglemadshaggy said:Because I have a great Mech that does all this extra work for free
Not to mention, there was a lot more work done then just the tensioner. He also replaced the belt, all the pulleys and realigned everything. Then he double and triple checked the work to make sure the belt wasn't slipping.
Update on my car............ all is good :thumbsup: . The car was driven most of the night hitting boost a couple of times. The belt was checked this morning and there was some slippage but was shortly tightened. I'm also not sure if I like this new allen bolt design. Like Jamie said, its harder to get this thing tight with this set-up.
The spacers wont help the belt slippage, only the belt shredding issue. To cure belt slippage just tighten the tensioner a little.tt061880 said:I have the spacers in and it still didn't cure my belt slippage problem, wtf is going on???
