SuperCharger belt came off this past Saturday boy does that suck. You talk about a slow car. 11,000 miles on car with stock charger and 2.6 pulley.:mofo:

Sounds like keeping a spare around is a good idea?

It varies according to how you drive but those belts do not last too long.

I have actually been surprised how long they do last. I have 18000 on my original belt. 10,000 of that on a ported blower running a 2.2" pulley.

If the pullies are installed correctly and the tensioner is in its control range, there is no reason the belt should come off. Normal wear is on the order of 25,000 miles or more.

I have been keeping a spare new one and now have a good used one,Had to go to a longer belt.My original belt got chewed due to pulley alignment-My fault-Removed and reinstalled the pulley and no more problems.
