Question Engine BELT problem!!!HELP!!

Hi guys, I'm still new to this...I got a Vortech Zetec with Focus sport Headers and exhaust...My belt always screaming!!!!Did somebody had this problem??How do you fix it? My car has been build at the ford dealer for an other person and I buy it past November...They change the belt, send the SC to Vortech for a rebuild, scrap an other beltwhen they put the SC back in(they bolt the pulley offset), they change a bender beiring...The service guys just don't know what to do next...

So can someone help me??

Sorry for the pooooor english...I'm from Quebec in Canada sooo I'm used to speak AND write in french...

Can you verify for sure where the squealing is coming from, the belt itself, or one of the accessories (a/c, alternator, power steering, s/c)?
Have you looked at the belt tensioner? If I'm not mistaken, those can go if the belt you swapped to for the supercharger was too small and would therefore create too much tension.

Is the belt on tight ?
Is the belt the correct size ?

Try replacing the belt tensioner.
