It's up there. Maybe #11? But doesn't quite work with the top 10 thing. People can deal with some oily engines. Their engines will be oily anyway from all the other stuff

Do you prefer the Dayco AC belt tensioner to the INA as well? Is INA no good, in your opinion?

I'm asking overall because I'm helping another member, locally, with a parts list, and I recommended all INA for these.

(Thanks for the post, by the way!)
No problem. They're all good. INA just came out with that stand-alone AC belt tensioner I think so really. Brand isn't a big deal. Just get them swapped out with whatever! All good in my book!

My personal preference is Meyle though.
