It just got me wondering how it is possible to use the longer belt but I guess there is enough articulation in the tensioner for it to compensate. Iminhell any word on that metal tensioner pulley? Car has been running great since I installed the belt just want to be sure I didnt miss something with the tensioner. Once again, I appreciate all of the opinions and if any one else has anything to add its greatly appreciated.

the gates kits are the same expect the added pulley. the belt is the same
