Those with Gatorback belt on a GTS...
how was the fitment?? yesterday i bought an "Dayco" belt for my GTS and it wouldn't fit, it missing like 1/2inch of diameter..i just wonder if you guy install it, how was the fitment on it..i'm thinking of buying it..i spend 2hrs with my bro last night trying to install it but couldn't, so i return it..any help would be greatly appreciated..

i installed my gatorback belt about 2 weeks ago and i love it. personally i would say take it back and get the gatorback belt. i have attached the tool that i used to pull on the tensioner. i got it from autozone for 3.99 and worked perfectly

if you keep your sanity, that's why I'm going spineyes

plus if you tend to cruise around crowds of people walking, it will keep them from staring at you wondering what's messed up with a new car.


I get my kicks on EC.

oh man does it work..it fit like a glove compare to the one i bought from advanced auto part..no more squeaky..yay..i'm so glad i purchase this..installation took 30sec after you remove the old belt..it's easier if you took off ur passenger side tire and drop the underside plastic to expose the pulley..so yeah..i highly recommend them to anyone of you with squeaky problem..although i feel like, at first, acceleration reaction is slower..but maybe it's just me or maybe the belt is being break in slowly..
