Custom drive-belts

As this is gonna be of importance to all my future plans, just wondering if you can get a custom belt of any type (eg. v (or a or whatever) or serpentine etc) and of any length? Same thing pretty much goes for the harmonic balancer.. can I get a custom one made.. if so, where?

Re: Custom drive-belts

Those Toyota SC14 superchargers look damn tasty.. 2 of them, with individual start/stop switches in the cabin (they'r electronic-clutch operated, but shouldn't be switched on at speeds > 2500rpm)..

A few people have reported boost of 6-8psi @ 6500rpm on a 4.3 litre V8 engine, from having two of these running.

So once I convert to a bigger, tougher gearbox (not the soon-to-be-carried-out T5 conversion, maybe a supra box), I shall source 2 of these, remove A/C compressor, fit one where it was, one above, use the A/C idler pulley and a custom belt (hopefully identical size to the AC one, but stronger) to drive both superchargers... should go off like a frog in a sock, and for about.. $700 for the S/Cs + $500 for an intercooler, maybe less cause I don't really need a MASSIVE one... couple hundred $$ for piping.. I'll just run them on LPG with an OMVL unit (should easily flow enough fuel)... can't wait
