well..to make sure its not the belt or blower or idler pullies making noise on the front belt system. Take the front blower belt off and start the car. Then listen if that sound is still there.

I am pretty sure it's the Gatorback belt. I sprayed some CRC 5-56 on the grooved side and the noise temporarily stopped. I'll try your tip tonight because I am also going to try the stock belt. It should fit for a test.

The gatorback belt works fine, it's just noisy.

Thanks for the replies. I started the cobra without the belt, no noise. I put back the stock belt, no noise. Noise problem resolved, time to return the Gatorback belt.

BTW, did you know that the stock Motorcraft belt is the exact same size as the Goodyear Gatorback part number 4080750. I didn't until tonight.

Thanks again.:)

YA the Gatorbelt is noiser the stock. There was a video clip of the gaterback belt and the noise it makes. Alot of people are buying it so that the SC will make more noise.
