    No sir i would say that is not supposed to happen. I would invest in a tensioner unless you like not having an alternator , water pump, steering etc at about 85mph!

    Yeah definetly not fun. And wise choice buddy on using another car for now. while your at it get a new belt you never know if its damaged. also check the tensioner for the a/c. yes it has its own. at least on my 02 z it does. its on the bottom so youd need a lift or some ramps.easy to get to though.

    Not a bad idea to replace the belt while you are at it.

    I run the Katech solid tensioner and love it. Can forget about throwing a belt after installing it.

    Yeah... I think I have heard of that. My reason for asking was that I wanted to see it installed along with whatever else Ron has going on under the hood. He simply has a badass car and I could not recall viewing any recent underhood pics.
