thats what i just installed on mine. kindof a bitch to get them to line up right when you are initially installing, but once they are on they're solid. ill have to take a pic of my old one. it didnt break, it just sortof deteriorated on the end causing the o-ring to fall off. no o-ring to be found when i removed it.


art- i know you dont "need" to, but do yourself a favor and remove the alt off of the tensioner. makes it 100X easier to get at the back bolt. i found that in order to get all the bolts in they're holes, you need to just barley have the elbows in the engine holes at all, thread the bolts then pop the elbows in. its nearly impossible to line ALL the bolts up any other way.


also- 15mm deep well for the back bolt, shallow 15 with a 3" extension for the front 2

i would pay that for no ethanol. i have experienced non ethanol in one tank of gas in my car. it ran so much nicer. the crap they sell here is a horsepower and fuel economy killer.

Ya If I ever had to switch back to lower octane & ethanol, PA would not like it.
It runs so smooth and on hwy it gets about 38mpg. Still at over $6 a gallon it is not cheap.
