how much difference is there with a 10 rib belt vs regular one? does it sound, or feel different or respond better? or is it just a longer lasting belt setup?
and does this kit come with the whipple or does it have to be bought separate?
Unfortunately I only drove it about a half mile home, so I can't answer any performance questions yet. The sound is the same though. The BIG difference is that you are now running a dedicated blower belt. Before it was all the same belt, so if you threw it off you lossed the power steering, water pump, and charging system, thereby making the car undriveable. As of now there are a few other things, like maintenance for instance, because the alternator is behind the bracket it will be a real bi_ch to replace. The poly mounts add a vibration type noise that you will have to deal with, but that's the cost... so what. As far as cost goes, you must buy it separate, it does not come with the SC kit. Most everyone else is NOT having a problem with the single belt. I was. It was installed under an agreement, not out of necessity.
Sorry officer, I thought you wanted to race!
