on the stock block i got around 9 months out of them. thats just a guess tho. twice a month or atleast monthly track time and always driven hard. the motor still ran and felt great when i took it apart. just smoked under boost and i was getting alot of oil blow by. thats why i checked compression and got 90 on 2 cylinders . btw i have no idea how many miles. in a 9 month time span atleast 2-5k (maybe)

The fluidampr is stock size so it doesn't need a larger belt. Only ATI pulley is larger and needs a larger belter.

Actually, the fluidampr is slightly bigger than the stock size...

fludiampr - 6.125" OD
stock - 5.75" OD

And for everyone's info, ATI - 6.61" OD

That being said, it may be possible to use the same belt as stock size...I have a revup kit so I wouldn't know for sure...

Thanks for the clarification I put the stock butt to butt n they def weren't the same. I'll try w my belt see if it works. Should be fine I'm thinking just tighter :-) today prob try and get that pulley on as it seems like a tight fit, mount blower back on bracket and install and a few more touches. Got the wiring harness on place and connected 90%. Getting close

And with a Vortech, tighter is better......

Thanks man, I'm only working on it 2-3 hours a day after work tryin to make sure I cover all the bases. The new intake manifold forced me to move the fpr so I needed a longer fuel line so that set me back a day but so far things are going pretty smooth. The fluidampr seems really tight to install which I'm assuming is why they sell a 140 dollar install tool but in trying to make my own install tool out of a all thread 16x1.5mm so hopefully that will help w the install, blower should go on today as well as some piping.
