Stock tensioner blows!
I run & suggest the Jannetty piece, comes with built in pulley as well.

I imagine they will replace it and it may just have been a defective unit....or post pictures with measurements and we will design a stronger billet unit if the demand is there.

so another factory tensioner broke on me this weekend .edelbrock sent me a new one the last time no questions asked and said it was a bad casting.the belt that was on my car was a season old and I noticed at high rpm my boost was erratic so I installed new belt to stop the slipping.1st run just pulled out of waterbox and was heating things up and it let go.dont know if its because my motor revs so fast with light weight flywheel,boost etc or what but the stock tensioner just cant handle it.it looks like it hits the stop and pulls through it.this time I hand built a manual one out of aluminum hope it works better.just so we are clear,this isn't a bash against the e force system,i have not had any other problems with the kit ,it works flawlessly and makes good power(630 rw)I just wonder if im the only one that has had this problem

I don't know about the Camaro kits, but for the Corvette kit, Edelbrock recently came out with a new design tensioner and sent me one for free, although I have never had issues with the first one. Then new one is bigger and looks stronger.

Same problem.

I only have a few hundred miles on my current setup, and I'm on my 3rd tensioner. I do have the innovators 8 rib pulleys w/10% od. ~14-15 psi. It only seems to happen when I beat the car hard (every time I drive it). The tensioner dosent break every time, but at very least it tgrows the belt. Did anyone come to any conclusions? I know for a fact that the tensione is dayco only. No one else makes a cross to it. Any info would be appreciated.

i got a new tensioner from edelbrock. nothing wrong with mine other than the two pulleys on the tensioner are a little loose. bad/worn bearings maybe. tje new tensioner doesnt come with an idler pulley though. can i just get the same pulley at a parts store i wonder?

for anyone that cares still, the new kit is machined like garbage. had to put washers behind the bracket on the water pump so it would sit flush. and then im about to put the tensioner in and realize is doesnt sit right either. the little set screw on the back that keeps it in place is too small for the hole....lovely.
