Default Belt size after pulley upgrade?

Iv'e looked around the forums and couldn't come up with any information on what size belt is reccomended after a 2.3" */c pulley was added. So I'm just wondering what size belt should I look for. Ever since the new pulley was added Iv'e witnessed a loud squek.... please help me determine the correct size of the new belt i need.

If I'm correct the stock size pulley for your car is 2.55" and you have a 2.3". I would think you should be able to use a stock size belt but should probably use a oversized tensior pulley to pick up the slack and give you more belt wrap on the SC pulley & there for elimating or reducing that squeak (belt slippage) you hear.

You can buy one at your local NAPA or Autozone; I won't be much help with part numbers though. Or you could get one off of Intense'* site
