You'd get less grip.. It wouldn't affect hp unless it started to slip. My electric wp only gives a little more belt wrap on the crank pulley then if the diagram above were to bypass the wp. With a Gatorback belt I don't get any slip. On mine, instead of the belt going up from the crank pulley to the p/* pulley it goes in the direction of the tesioner.
True true, but wouldnt if you hit a puddle or something compremise the "non-slip"

So lets see.
It seems like its very possible for my application, and assuming I get a good quality gaterback(which hopefully I could find a standard sized one that fits) there should be no real slip issues.
Now the question arises how to hook it up. I've seen most places sell some type of plug and play wireing harness to go with the pump, so I wanted to know if anyone had any experience with those(quality, ease of hookup, etc.).
Much appriciate it.

You just have to find a pink ignition wire for the relay so the pump will turn on when you put the car in accessory. I found mine going to the larger fuses in the engine. And then you just have to hook up 12v power and a ground. I bought it from www.zzperformance.com and used thier harness.

Are you sure none of your motor mounts are in the way? I doubt this has ever been done to any pre series 2 engine.
