    this product is great,can't beat factory products.

    Ford Motorcraft products are reliable and stand up to the test of time. I would rather put Motorcraft parts on my mustang any day over aftermarket. Hands down better quality!!

    Ford Motor Sport Belt Tensioner (86 - 93 5.0L)

    The very easy installation of the belt tensioner on my Kenne Bell 2.1L, AFR 165 headed, F303 cammed LX 5.0 meets all of my expectations. With a new belt I have no slippage, even at 6500 RPM shift points, (12.708 seconds @ 110 MPH, 4 yr. old Nitto 555 drag radials). This is a long bet installation: smog pump, AC, mechanical water pump, power steering, 130 amp alternator - 108 inch long belt, fully smog and street legal.
