I believe it's a tensioner for the belt is it not?

Yeah, it's more for supercharged cars, though...as they tend to put a lot more pressure on this component. Seems to be an issue with Kenne Bell blowers like mine, especially.
Ding ding ding...we have a winner. Anyone running a S/C that is sriven by the serpentine belt Vortech, Magnacharger, KB etc can have an issue with the stock tensioner failing. Especially at higher boost levels, that put more strain on the part. So far I have not heard of one of these failing, and several guys that broke the stocker, are running this version on their S/C cars

Yes, it would be a worthwhile upgrade as the tensioner is a common failure point on S/C cars

These are a needed upgrade for any car running a S/C I have been threw 2 stock ones and plan on ordering this one soon.

Agreed.... I just the sheer, untamed, raw power we get now..... :O

All joking aside.... I agree, it's a necessity. I blew mine pretty easily not even running that hard. Since I was going to go to the track, I figured I go to the extreme. Probably overkill. However, this unit was not even an option.

This is a must.....
