TVS2300 belt slip- what's the best tensioner, extra rib setup?

Just added a cam and head work to my setup, while tuning, the boost goes away at higher rpms. Def have a belt slip problem-What is the best setup for the front side of the engine (I have the jackshaft). I have already installed the cog setup on the back.

Adm performance has a brand new hd tensioner and idler combo. Give andy a call and see what kind of deal he can give you.

Definitely try the tensioner. The 8 rib setups are pretty high unless you really need them.

I have the same problem. I added a Jannetey super tensioner and it didn't fix the problem. I ran 8 lbs of boost before tensioner and after, so I decided to go with a 8 rib system. Jannetey set me up with the 8 rib. Definitely not the cheapest setup to go to the 8 rib but I want more boost.

I forgot to mention I also added an e85 kit at the same time and that added a lot more power so I guess I'm not sure what the tensioner would have done at equal power.

When you overdrive the rear you add speed to the rotors which make them HEAVIER to the belt and increases the chance for belt slip..The 8 rib is a much needed piece .We have a great tension setup and can get you a great price on the whole 8 rib setup..Give me a call if I can help you out

If you had slip at 8psi you had the wrong size belt. I'm at 12psi With the ECS Tensioner and have 0 slip. I do and the OD Cog.

ADM, besides the bracket being black; is there any difference between JRE super tensioner and your super tensioner?

Here is the ADM added idler bracket for better belt rap. This tensioner bracket is also 3/4 thick.

you will def. spend some money for a 8 rib kit, because for some reason whipple stopped carrying 8 rib kits or stopped selling them, when ordered the whipple from them. I had go through innovators west.

Is it possible your lost boost is from the cam and headwork?
Maybe you need to pulley up.
I run 8 psi and never had belt slip but went with the supertensioner just for insurance.

He should have gotten boost loss from the work, but with an OD cog, he should have steady boost at whatever PSI. That type of boost loss is different than what he's experiencing at upper RPMs. He's pretty much got typical belt slip for whatever reason. A tensioner with the proper belt length will probably take care of it.
