So I threw an A/C belt for the 3rd time now the other day. I brought it in to the dealership to get it fixed again and this time they tell me it was all the modifications I have done to the engine that caused the A/C belt to hop off the pully. The changed it but informed me that they will not do anymore belts under warrenty for me.

Now my issue with this is that I have thrown this belt 2 others time, first was with ZERO modfications and the second I had a CC and CAI. Now that I have headers, that is what is causing my A/C belt to slip? I'm smelling a little fowl play here but if I thrown this belt again I will be having a nice chat with the local Service rep.

This almost makes me want to give in and just void the whole thing and get a CAM and TUNE done on it.............. still thinking about what im gona do!

Also finally paid off my AAC concept mirros last week so they should be here soon!

Engine if you don't mind the no warranty issue. Otherwise, more suspension is key even before power. Lastly, interior can be done .

Your Camaro looks great love the lowering job. loved the Rideskinz front but the zl1 looks almost as good, prob a whole lot more practical for a driver. Lot of really tasteful mods you have done.

And thank you for choosing our MPD1 "Z Force Hood!
