Thanks for the info. Noise however is coming from the a/c belt. Both belts are original(from what I can tell, GM part #). Think I will swap the balancer and get the two new belts for that.

Couple of vids from last track outing. This was in late November, rain and work have kept me from getting any cold days. Couldn't hook on either pass, I think both 60fts were in the 1.7 range. I'm peddaling the car in the 60ft, not shifting. Also Mike was there. You can see 60ft was a problem for both of us.

I replaced every pulley and belt on mine before the supercharger. It would stop squealing for a little while and within a few hundred miles it would start doing it again. After the blower it hasn't squealed yet. (knock on wood) I guess the Maggie tensioner and belt did the trick.

I went with the Powerbond pulley, which is supposedly the same as the SLP. I purchased it from New Era. It's $179.99, plus $9.95 for shipping. So it looks like there's only a few dollars difference. At the time I purchased mine, the price difference was much more.

Well mine has been squeeking its ass off for the past few days. I popped the hood and I noticed it was coming from the lower part of the engine/ac area. So I did what every experienced shade tree mechanic does.....spit on the ac pulley. Noise instantly went away as soon as my natural lubricant made contact.lol I'm going to start by changing the belts first and then go from there.

In case anyone else needs belts

I had general admission for the F1 race, think I'll do the same for this one. Haven't booked a room yet, stayed at Ramada downtown last time.
