    Nice! I didn't realize you picked up a 2.9 gen4......you really need to start your own project thread like 94slowbra did. All 2.9 gen4 builds deserve their own unique thread! Lol. Good luck with it.

    No kidding! I'm not even sure what pulley combo nets the lowest boost result.....it will be dicey on pump gas. And that's even with 93.....if 91 is going to be the fuel, the timing is going to have to be ULTRA low.

    That gen4 needs the liquid gold desperately

    I guess it depends on what you consider hard. I'm not planning on over 23psi. But yeah, it's going to get E85.

    Nah. He covered most of it. Mine isn't as special since it's a non-crusher.

    When I ordered this one the guy at Lethal said I'll probably be around 18-19psi with the 3.5" pulley. But I'm seeing reports of 20psi as it sits. It's going to get a 91 tune at first just so I can figure it out and get a handle on it. I've never tuned with E85 so I'll do that once the pump gas is nailed down. Plus I need the pump gas for the long trips. Like in November I'm going to be driving it to Vegas and I have no idea what the E85 situation is like between here and there.

    The real question will be will I ever need the 4lb lower I have sitting on the shelf.

    The belt I guessed on and ordered showed up today. So naturally I had to try it out and then it rolled a little from there. I had to see what it would look like together.

    I picked up a 76.5" belt and it's a tad tight for me. It's right on the end of the mark on the tensioner. But the next size up is 77.2" and I think it might be on the loose side. Maybe I'll see if this one stretches at all. I can move the aux idler and a little bit more, but it'll be in the same area on the tensioner. bed4f876bab3dcfa77b2bbe44e05ad27.jpg 7ae88788c30bd833b24a9bd31f11fe38.jpg

    Just invest in a better tensioner like a thump unit. And keep the tension a little on the tight side.

    I have the Roush tensioner. I didn't think my pulley combo needed a big tensioner.

    I must be lucky or something. See so many problems on here or FB and I have a stock tensioner and a 2.9 upper pulley. Nothing special and zero slip. Boost increases to redline

    I don't know how old the old tensioner was. It could've been the original with 115k on it. So I figured if I was replacing it I might as well upgrade a little.

    Hmm looked kinda like a stock unit with those hash marks. My pulley combo isn't anything crazy, but I'm more likely to have belt slip running a 2.6 upper.

    It looks similar but the arm is thicker. And the spring is heavier. How much I couldn't tell you. But it did take more effort to move it. I got the idea from jrgoffin. I did have to space it out, but a couple washers took care of that. 4a8efa42be9d1dad45ac60a9c4cbb834.jpg

    Come on now, all gen4s matter. With a 3.5 upper and 4lb lower I'm peaking at about 25lbs. I'm on the hunt for a 3.625 upper right now to drop it down a little. So far it's been great. The crusher was definitely a MFer to install. But hopefully the end result is worth it.
    Once you tune for E you'll never want to go back to 91-93.
    Good luck bro.
