    understood

    And I'm sorry for putting a scar on your kit.
    Like you said I may have been a special case, if you have that many running without issues that is great news for me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks for bringing this kit to market. I have been using the Gates RPM racing belt with my Whipple for a while now. Its 70 bucks through rock auto and still looks brand new after many many miles.

    I think I should have a spare belt in the truck just in case. Gates K061251? I remember that's the one came in with whipple kit?

    It depends on the SC ppulley size. 125.1 inches (KO61251) is good for 3,500 and 3.250 pulleys.
    And the 124.7 inch (KO61247) is good for 3.250 and 3.125 pulleys

    I have 3.500

    I don't push the truck hard, but still should have a spare for peace of mind I think. Besides that I should learn how to change the belt first LOL...

    LOL, you don't want do that first time on the side of road at 20 degrees and with no light and proper tools, that's for sure.

    I believe the part number for the shorter belt is K061247.

    I have a picture of the routing on my phone to reference if needed (for that potential 20 degrees out and I am on the side of the road moment).

    So far so good, though.

    That idler pulley between the belt coming from the power steering pulley is not used nor was it ever.

    And if you look at the picture we posted, it's laid out just like the OEM routing ;)
