    i dont know what size it is...the numbers have worn off. if i go bigger, it will be toobelt route number two. i was talking to a good family friend thats also a mechanic. he said that i want the tensioner before the crank, were all the slack is. and my current setup puts it in the middle of the route, allowing slippage on the alternator.

    could just get an original sized belt and get an AC delete pulley from zzp. That's what im prolly going to do. Gets rid of the guess work.

    I fear this would happen. Best bet is the intake gaskets.

    If you cant afford to do it right the first time. Can you afford to do it a second time????

    If high performance blinker fluid was not used then the intake gasket is surely gone

    Summer air in the tires can sometimes cause it too.

    Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car, oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car, horsepower is how fast you hit the wall, and torque is how far you take the wall with you.
