Default Belt Came off at WOT !?!?!

Hey guys for all that didnt know my bonneville is finally how it should be for the most part.... It was the engine module the whole time i had the car. I guess it was throwing off timing and just about everything... ok so anyways i had my car at WOT the other day off the line with a mean burnout, continued driving and my engine light came on and my temperature sky rockets, So i pull over as quick as possible and sure enough my belt is just sittin in the engine bay. I had the tools in my trunk luckly to put it back on and away i go. It hasnt fell off since then but im confused why it happened in the first place. Any ideas? Could my tensioner be weak or on its way out?

I have a CAI High flow cat and smaller pulley what size belt should i be running in this application?

I bet you have a weak tensioner. Check with the belt on the car to see where the little arrow is on the tensioner, it should be on the middle mark.

I bought a 85 inch belt at autozone 30 bucks for the gatorback but i wanted maxium grip and tension. The belt was extremely difficult to put on but thats what i was looking for. There are now no squeaks or tapping coming from the belt and or */c, ITs actually very quiet and no slippage at all. The tensioner is cocked back pretty far though but i am 100 percent sure this belt will not come off. Now al i gotta do is figure out why my tranny will not shift at WOT.................. then ill be golden
