The belt needs to be as tight as a guitar string, and if you are using the stock ProCharger supplied air filter, that may be part or all of your problem. It is possible at 11 psi for the filter to be too restrictive, and I have seen it cause belt slippage. To see if the filter is part of the problem, try making several runs with it off in a clean area. Watch your boost gauge if you have one, as you may end up making several more psi of boost, which could lean it out. I sell a larger air filter that will fit in place of the stock filter. Here is a link to it. http://shop.brutespeed.com/ATI-AF056...AF056I-009.htm

Here is the link to the Aster bracket. http://shop.brutespeed.com/Aster-Aut...er-Bracket.htm

Thanks. Bob
Very interesting point about the air filter; at what RWHP do you think the ProCharger filter starts to become restrictive? Right now I'm at 666 RWHP (on a Dyno Jet) with a speed density tune - too much air is apparently flowing to use the MAF to tune.

I'd say you have to be at the point where that filter can be too small. Bob

Thanks for the great tips and links. Can you also tell me, why does a restrictive air filter make the belt slip?

oh and the other great thing about prochargers for ours car , the overheating , procharger was useless with me when i said you sell a shitty product , it overheats in the summer, you use one fan and it cant keep up . So i added a second and it helps for sure . But just another case of how bad the setup is for the 98-02 fbody . I wish they would redesign it or make the aster or sdce type setup standard.

You're welcome. A restrictive filter puts a load on the blower as it can't get enough air, which causes the belt to slip as the engine rpm increases. Bob

If I buy this filter and pick up a couple pounds of boost won't I have to worry about belt slippage anyway? 11 lbs + 2 = 13.

You happened to get into a thread that is a year old. We aren't currently having a GP. Thanks. Bob
