    As long as it within the 2 marks......Mine is at the farthest mark right now and I haven't run the engine yet so the belt will stretch a bit and it will settle back I expect.

    If you are running the Sanden compressor it is 2,490MM. At least it was for me. Stock size for an 88 Camaro with a 350. They go up by 20MM in size and it adds about an 3/4inch to the length.

    They supplied a 2,470 with my kit and I think they assume you are running the AC delete. I picked up a 2,490 and 2,510 and returned the 2,510.

    I got a gates belt from NAPA today that was 97-5/8 long and it was too short to even fit on. I'm going to swap it for a 98-1/2 or 99" one tomorrow and see if that will fit. I was shocked when the guy said it was $44! WOW!

    OK I got the correct belt on the 2nd try. Here is a pic of how it turned out and the NAPA Gates belt PN#.
