Idk what size as in inches, you can take some string and run it through the pulleys and see but I highly recommend getting the smog pump delete kit for $80

The delete is just a aluminum bracket and pulley that takes the place of the smog pump

And why is that better than just getting a smaller belt? Sorry for the questions I'm just curious.

Not 100% sure but that's what the speed shop told me before I dropped it off for dyno

It's not really any better, but it takes the guess work out of the belt size. With the delete you can still use the stock belt and never have an issue when it comes to replacement.

If you just take it off and try a shorter belt, what most guys do is reverse the spring in their tensioner and that allows different belts. Just from my experience its hard to find the exact size you need, hence the tensioner reversal. Most are either too tight or too loose.

That makes sense. Thanks for the answer.

No problem! That's on my long lost of things to do on mine to. Right now I've it the pump still there and nothing attached to it. The bad part is the previous owner just replaced the pump prior to my purchase.

Take it off and sell it "like new"
