Best supercharger belt.

I'm currently using a gates K080514. I'm going to be installing a new one since I got some oil on this one by mistake ( a little but whatever ). Should I stick to gates or should I get something else?

I've heard that the supercharger belts used on the Jaguars are pretty good. I think there is a claim running around here you get an extra .5 pound of boost or something because they stay tighter. I have no idea if that is true, but I'll be getting one next time around as I've always heard they are quality belts.

I like the green gates heavy duty ones, but I'm not sure if they have one that fits your pulley setup.

If your car is stock then yes, the oem one will do but mine has a larger pulley and I'm just looking for the best belt that won't slip. I'm going to stick to the same one I have though since EC is using gates I may as well use it.

What do your pulley suppliers use? In the old days many recommended and used women's hose.

I look for one that fits my setup and change it every 10,000 miles with my oil.

Not to hijack a thread here but if any one wants an unused stocker, hit me up! I can't use it anyway ... I was under the misconception that the smaller pulley provided to me was an idler and would allow me to run stock supercharger belt length (stupid me)!

I have a 180mm pulley, and need to replace my supercharger belt. I was looking at the previously mentioned gates k080514 belt. However amazon has 2 belts for sale, a HD version and non HD version. Which one should I get?

Goodyear GarorBack or Gates Green Stripe belts provide the best grip IMO. GatorBacks have a crosshatch which may improve grip and aid cooling. GatorBacks seem to be used exclusively by Roush. In either case, just change them once a year.

Do you have a part number on any of those belts that would work with a 180mm pulley?
