Well I put that allen head bolt in, looked everywhere for rubbing andn othing. Alignment is dead on. Not hitting the power steering resiover bracket.

Theres definatley belt dust on the pass. head valley. So maybe it was rubbing on that belt?

Only thing I dont like is how the belt fits into the supercharger pulley. Just doesnt seem like it fits in snug like on the other grooved pulleys (alt/crank etc)

So if it rips again, I think Ill buy a brand new 2.87 pulley

I have to take my entire head unit and bracket off each time I change the belt. I've lost spacers and worn out belts. I obviously did something different after a month of down time and reinstalling the supercharger. After 5,000 miles it is showing excessing wear on one side of the belt. I intend to fix it but this is something we all need to watch. Every time we change a belt (my recommendation is once per year) we've got to get the spacers back in.

Me... I thought I did, but I must have missed something. It's wearing differently.

I honestly never thought of that. Perhaps the simplest fix is the best.

Eagle yea thats exactly whats going on with me. So far it seems okay. But It could definatley toss again.

Stal, yea it seems fine man. If I put a washer on it, it would throw the alignment off. And its not rubbing. My supercharger pulley and idlers and alternator are all aligned perfectly.

So I started the car up, I heard that squeaking/chirping sound.

It was getting louder as I drove the car, but after like 2 mins of driving, it stopped.

The tensioner seems to kind of shake back and forth. Is it supposed to do that?

yeah a little movement in the tensioner from what i have heard is fine. and if you rev it the tensioner should give a little, but obviously still hold tension on the belt.
