Ok so here is my scenerio. I was running a 114 6 rib belt with my procharger setup and it was VERY tight when i put it on. I do not know if it can be to tight. When that broke i had no choice Pepboys was the closest and i bought a 115. recently i just switched to a 114 1/2. I am running a 3.40 blower pulley. I am switching to a 3.00 blower pulley. I want to run the Gatorback belt but the only sizes they have are either 113 or 114 1/2. My other option is a 113 3/4 from Napa. Any other suggestions? Can the belt be to tight that it will actually snap? I really wanted to run the 113 Gatorback.But i dont want to spend the $40 on it @ Summit and it not fit .Thanks

Dave

tighter belt is better for more boost. but as i know if the belt reaches to 130 degrees or more, it will start to stretch. we made a manual tensioner on my car. we make my belt so tight that you won't believe. i change my belt every 6-8 passes because as i said before that it stretches.

i think you will be fine with the 113 gator. if you can put it on with the stock tensioner, then you are way fine.
i learned all this from the Zoop and brian mitchell, the fastest renegade guys in NMRA as they are in our racing team.

later
