I wouldnt say you need one, but it's always a good thing to have...with that setup I'd make sure you had the idler pulleys as well (especially the auxilary idler) to help with any kind of belt slip...

+1 get the idlers and definately the auxilary idler...belt slip is no good:D

Actually it is a Metco lower I also bought the MAF extender for these pulleys which would you recomend and do you mean 2 idlers or an idler and a tensioner, the guy said that I didnt need a tensioner with the lower pulley and that the stock idler is just fine. thanks

The link below is what I was referencing for the idler pulley and bracket.

the stock tensioner works well with 4 idler pulley's along with your lower...if you keep the stock idler pulleys you increase the distance between your next intersection, which could lead to belt slip...check out the link infamous posted...here is a setup with new idlers as well, see how well the belt is wrapped :eek:
