Just checked. Gates pn K080764 which has effective length of 1943mm. I can use either a 1942 or 1950mm gatorback. I took the belt off yesterday and its really short (tensior was almost as taught as it could go). Not sure if i should go with the slightly shorter one (really gonna have to fight it on with two people) or the longer one. Also rockauto doesnt carry the PN as far as I know, summit does tho

I'm Chris.

RA has it for $17.70. The p/n for 76.5" gatorback belt is 4080765. Its the number all the way on the left of the chart I posted the link on.

Thanks Chris

Yea they have the 1942mm length but not the 1950. Im just a little worried because it was a royal PITA to get the 1943mm belt on it last night and that was after it had been broken in and stretched. The brand new 1942mm gatorback might put up a fight lol.

The gatorback belts are really flexible and imo are easier to get on than a stiff Dayco or Gates.

probably because they are ribbed in two directions: one in the direction of belt travel and one in the direction normal to belt travel. Makes sense, ill go with the 1942 since its $17

Also, try removing your auxillery tensioner pulley first, route the belt around all the pullies, then apply tension to the factory tensioner and install the pulley. Thats how I would install my belt when I still had my Eaton.

New Gatorback belt went in last night. Had to adjust the alignment on two of the pulleys but the Gatorback really did make all the difference. Squeak is completely gone.

Also the shorter belt went on just fine with a second set of hands.

The belt also looks pretty damn cool with the rib pattern

+1 to Chris and Dave on the Gatorback reference

Passed inspection on Saturday (thanks to Eric for suggesting Bousquets in Sutton) and decided to swap the exhaust for something a little meaner- probably a bad idea considering the car was cleaned and waxed and ready to go for the Putnam car show on Sunday. Anyways, I picked up an off-road x pipe and began the swap.

Rear clamps came out real easy, the header-to-midpipe fasteners did not. Both whole studs came out of the drivers side (the nut remained frozen on the threads) and the upper stud on the passenger side came out. Some of you may be familiar with the tactics necessary for removing the lower nut/stud on the passenger side: between the starter, the frame, and the midpipe itself theres hardly any room to work. After an overnight soak with pb-blaster I used a 15mm midlength socket, two wobbles, and about 20 inches of extension and was able to turn it about two revolutions before snapping the stud. Herein lies the reason why I wasnt able to make the car show...

Trailed the car up to my uncles shop and put it on the lift this morning. welded a hex head to the stud and baked the area with an acetylene torch until we could back the stud out. Then cleaned up all the threads and replaced all the studs with brand new ones. New midpipe should be (emphasis on the "should" with the rate things have been going) going together once I get out of work. Fingers crossed.

Should have just used bolts going up into the manifold flange. That's how I have my headers setup now. Studs suck. Same thing happened to my car years ago with stock manifolds and an x pipe.

Bousquets is the best for stickers. My car has no emissions equipment 5% tint and is silly loud. Gets a sticker everytime

I considered this. I ended up thinking about it this way: if a nut on a thru-bolt freezes it wont come off, but if a nut on a stud freezes the stud itself can still come off. Pretty silly philosophy but at the moment it made sense. I will certainly reconsider when its time for an inspection next year and I swap back to the stock exhaust

The guys there were great. No problems at all and we shared a couple good laughs. The last place I went the guy was giving me a hard time about the STOCK exhaust and the tint (its 30%). Guy was being an ass. My business will be with Bousquets in the future. Also When you say you have no emissions equipment what do you mean? Cats? EGR?

Thanks, I really like the color too. Needs some work to really make it stand out but I have nothing but time
