Thanks to:

1. Active Autowerke for the outstanding but limited edition twinscrew kit.

2. Mayco Performance for putting my car (engine, transmission, and supercharger) back together after my spring time disaster. And also building a kick a$$ oil cooler setup!

3. Soul Speed Performance for their suspension contributions.



So pick up your phone and call Viral@AA immediately! PM me for his cell phone number (kidding...don't!)

Someone know's how to drive Congrats Brotha!!!

I tried to bolt on a mechanical tensioner....and modified the heck out of it trying to make it work...but in the end realized it wasn't going to fit.

Thanks for sharing
Good idea. The steering wheel in my E90 has it...it does help.

I'm going to try and call VAC to maybe discuss getting a billet unit that works with the hydraulic tensioner. It is more difficult getting at anything on the belt drive with the Zionsville radiator. The radiator is much thicker and the fan is not easily removed. That makes changing the tensioner arm much less fun.
