Just looking for any possibilities..

Almost forgot, did you replace the idler, or the entire tensioner assembly?
Alernator has been replaced, 2 times to be exact since I have owned the car.

The whole assemble was replaced along with the pulley when I downsized to the 2.2" */c pulley

When you get the Vids of the sideview and the head on front view, let us know... I'll be more than happy to study the videos..

I agree, preloading has nothing to do with belt tension or shredding.

I had a similar fiasco here:

Never did quite figure out what it was, though. maybe Kennginn can pipe in here if he fixed it, or if it was ever a problem.

Just got the car back. When I started to challenge them they said that the belt could also use some "breaking in" to form to the pulleys. Geez, a thousand miles isn't enough?! BS, if you ask me.

Ok, here'* the best vid. I could come up with for the amount of time I have right now:
