@  novascotiaGS : (18 December 2014 - 01:50 AM) When is the new calendar going to be again available anyone know?
@  Sapias Lupus : (17 December 2014 - 04:01 AM) I went ahead and PMed you, I feel you know the roots of what the motor can handle with the gen 5 from your experience. I'd like to talk more extensively if thats cool.
@  Crazyguy03 : (17 December 2014 - 03:57 AM) it wasnt until I added a S1X that i could take the timing all the way up to 21* no kr
@  Crazyguy03 : (17 December 2014 - 03:56 AM) then I went to a gen5 and FSIC and N* then I was able to run a 3.0 WITH decent timing
@  Crazyguy03 : (17 December 2014 - 03:56 AM) from there i added headers and 1.9s
@  Crazyguy03 : (17 December 2014 - 03:55 AM) lol its hard to understand and remember but I can say I remember where I started it was a bone stock motor with just an intake, 3.4, and tune
@  Sapias Lupus : (17 December 2014 - 03:48 AM) I'll pm you.
@  Sapias Lupus : (17 December 2014 - 03:46 AM) Oh sh*t wait are you saying you ran a 3.4 on a gen 5 with nothing but intake and tune lol and didn't "need" an IC until you dropped again?
@  Sapias Lupus : (17 December 2014 - 03:41 AM) I'm not looking at SSICs I am planning to get the FS. I just don't exactly get what you're saying with the guys with the gen 3 running 3.25 because I'm not getting a SS. IGNORE THIS I think I done goofed
@  ejguillot : (17 December 2014 - 02:03 AM) Hi guys
@  Crazyguy03 : (17 December 2014 - 02:02 AM) I stayed with a 3.4 NO IC NO rockers stock everything but intake and tune I didnt move to a 3.0 until FSIC and 1.9s / cam
@  Crazyguy03 : (17 December 2014 - 02:01 AM) i know for a fact people with headers , gen3, SSIC, 42s , and 1.9s could not run a 3.25 with the same timing and fueling as a FSIC and 3.0
@  Crazyguy03 : (17 December 2014 - 02:00 AM) you cant assume you have to be sure
@  Sapias Lupus : (16 December 2014 - 06:02 PM) I've read around on the forum and have saw people who ran stock with an IC on 3.0 pulleys(Gen 3) Wouldn't see why a lightly modded car w 3.4 on a Gen 5 would be counter productive. Its like a 3.2 on the gen 3.
@  Sapias Lupus : (16 December 2014 - 05:59 PM) Ill make it a bit more clear on what I already have. Powerlog, Ceramic crossover, 3"DP,3" all the way back to stock muffler. Gen 5 with proper lim. Colder plugs, 180 therm, CAI, and canned tune. 0 KR according to the Aeroforce
@  BlackBetty : (16 December 2014 - 07:25 AM) well some things need to be done b4 u should go to 3.4 or smaller
@  Sapias Lupus : (13 December 2014 - 09:37 PM) My pulley is at 3.6 now with then gen 5 I just wanted to go down to 3.5 or 3.4.
@  Sapias Lupus : (13 December 2014 - 09:32 PM) The powerlog and downpipe aren't enough?
@  Marchi1 : (13 December 2014 - 01:04 PM) air in and air out before more air....
@  BlackBetty : (13 December 2014 - 07:09 AM) haha i just bought used ones on here too FML

Going through the pulleys I have been trying to figure out where this annoying squeeking has been comming from. Well it came down to changing the tensioner pulley out and it didn't fix the issue so i now just replaced the alternator but it still didn't fix the issue =(. While I was installing the alternator I noticed that while putting pressure onto the idler pulley to remove the belt, I kept hearing the squeek again, so im going to go with the idea that the issue is the tensioner itself.

Does anyone know where i can get a good used one ? Maybe a member here may have one !!

And maybe a general walk through with installing the part, I honestly need to get this part replaced ASAP because im sick of hearing the squeek.

the idler is easy to replace, just remove it by removing the bolt on the face and put on the new one. First take the belt off by releasing the tension on the tensioner with a wrench. This will be a good time to put a new belt on, not absolutely necessary but its good piece of mind and cheap so might as well do it. there is a diagram of the belt routing on a sticker that is in the engine compartment. this will be handy when it comes time to put the belt back on.

when it comes to pulleys, i do not recommend getting a used one. they are cheap enough that a used one doesnt make sense. esp since you dont know how many miles the used one has, it can go any day. do it right or do it twice! check rockauto, i bet you find a brand new one just as cheap as a used one.

I also recommend replacing it asap. a squealing idler means failure is eminent, and if its the acc belt if that goes you lose power steering, water pump, and alternator. not something you want happening when you're on the road.
