I am going to be buyinig a buddies used supercharger that was on his 93 5.0 coupe that has A/C, power steering, etc. I will NOT have power steering, A/C, or smog pump on my 5.0. Can I just delete these things and get a shorter belt or will I have to get idlers??

I would think that as long as there will be clearance enough to were the belt wont touch itself than a shorter belt may be all you need...other wise id say get idlers

The shorter belt should work brotha also I am not so sure that you will need 24# injectors I would go with 19#

my guess is if you found the right belt that won't like rubbing itself it should be fine. but idlers are a safer bet if you don't wanna deal with the possibility of having to put them in with yet another belt after trying without them.

i think i'll just try a shorter built first and hopefully save myself a couple hundred dollars (that i can spend on the interior and suspension :p: )

Depends on the routing, if certain accessories are deleted
then idlers need to be put in for routing. If you have a
good spot (like in place of something you deleted) you
can get by w/o a new idler. Get my drift???

I think the mounting bracket might have 1 on there, so that helps
with the idler issue. You just need good belt wrap on the SC pulley,
but at 8# I doubt you get any slip at all.

:good: That figures, most setups w/o many accessories need at least 1 idler...

just buy the simple delete kits they have. and buy the shorter belt.

as for injectors you should be fine wit your stock 19s

im running my stock 19 and only running 7 psi at the moment but once i get the new tune this spring its a whole differ story
