Serpentine Belt Conversion

Quick question: Can you run a Serpentine Belt setup on a ea with a standard Mpefi manifold or do you need to run a BBM manifold for clearance over the new ac compressor?

Re: Serpentine Belt Conversion

You can, but you need to buy XH tensioners and an XH belt, they will allow you to keep the AC compressor in the current position as the EF tensioner arm rubs on the belt when the AC mounted lower due to the change in belt angle. XH tensioers will overcome this problem as they have a different shaped tensioners arm which gives sufficient clearance for the belt to get past....
