procharger install: belt problems

I just finished installing a procharger and after running for about two minutes, the belt is off on the ac pulley by one rib. It is causing it to bend the rib up over the outside of the pulley. As far as I can see, all the pulleys are lined up correctly, but maybe the procharger pulley is slightly more towards the outside? Is there any way of adjusting the procharger pulley? Or any other options?

Yes it is. Looking at it again, the ac pulley could be the one that is off. I took a few pics to try and show what I mean as best I could

didnt know you were in kiel!! as for your issue, the bracket that attaches to the a/c compressor has slotted holes in it to adjust this. if its at its max adjustment to get it close as possible. you may need to slot the holes a little farther and grind the spacer that bolts to teh block down a little bit as well to get it all lined up perfect should solve the issue. try loosening those three bolts and tweaking that end to get it lined up first before busting out the dremel.
