    So taking a look at my engine bay this morning I saw that after 2k miles my supercharger belt is toast, well nearly toast. The part number is PTR30-35070 but i'm not sure I want to use the same TRD shitty belts. How do you match this part number up with a new belt from gates or another company. Im not surprised I have read up on this happening to other people. Thanks people.

    2k miles? Man that's terrible. Sounds like you should keep a spare one in the truck just incase.

    if its a common problem, there may be an alignment problem with the fit kit, (not the way you installed it) i mean the design of the brackets or the placement of the pulleys. with a serp system any variance will cause excessive heat and cracking in short order, also if it has an automatic tensioner the tension spring may let the belt slip while under boost /acceleration.this would also cause this. it may not be the belt at all.i havent received my charger yet so i dont know the exact specs. im just speaking from exp on other vehicles. too loose or too tight will cause this. thats why some of the bigger superchargers use belts with teeth . to prevent this. also i noticed you have a new pulley? im assuming it is to build more boost. more boost = more belt slippage. just my 2cents

    Stuff like this is why I'm not an FI guy...naturally aspirated engines have enough complexity already.

    Sorry to hear about the belt. Perhaps try a quality off the shelf brand of the right spec for replacement?

    What's a FI guy? (fuel injection). If so then FI has nothing to do with a super charger.
