Does this exist? My belt seems a tad bit loose and I see we have a self adjusting tensioner...can we get some kind of replacement/add-on?

It seems as the rpm's climb, there is a slowdown in boost pressure rise...

Thanks!

Sometimes the tensioners go weak. The springs loose there strength. I'd replace the tensioner.

Not a bad idea...I saw March Performance has some, but it doesn't look like they have them for our cars...What about making one???

I had been going through belts like crazy on my truck. (F-150) Like every 10K mi, and the last one was making noise as soon as I put it on. So I got a tensioner from KOI. End of problem.

Can you point me in the right direction? I cannot find a tensioner at KOI Auto Parts...

Try Auto Zone, Napa, Advanced Auto, or whoever is in your area.
