A&A SECONDARY BELT DRIVE SYSTEM FOR C5 AND C6 CORVETTE
The A&A Secondary Drive is unique in that it does NOT drive the accessories via the air conditioning belt like other systems. The A/C belt remains untouched. The accessory drive shaft pulley is driven by its own dedicated belt. This allows full belt wrap around the crankshaft pulley as well as the accessory drive shaft pulley and the ability to tension this belt separately. This eliminates accessory belt slip that plagues other systems. Our system also utilizes a spring tensioner on the alternator/power steering belt which allows proper belt wrap and tension.
Design testing showed the torque needed to slip the accessory drive shaft belt was nearly TRIPLE that of designs that use the A/C belt to drive everything. This eliminates voltage loss at high RPM from slipping, as well as belt squeal in slow corners with the A/C on.
We also addressed the bearing failure issues that plague other systems. Because two belts pull on the secondary shaft at nearly opposing angles, the bearing load is extremely high. Our design has allowed us to move the belts much closer together so the opposing forces are lessened tremendously. We’ve also fitted our pulley with TRIPLE high-speed bearings just to be sure.
This kit INCLUDES our PROPRIETARY 8 RIB SFI approved 10% OVERDRIVE BALANCER, all belts, hoses, fittings, pulleys and tensioners needed. (Will NOT work with stock, or standard Innovators West or ATI balancers)
Using our Secondary Drive allows the use of a much shorter belt to drive the supercharger which eliminates stretch and belt whip. This is the ultimate belt drive system for street driven C5 and C6 Corvettes as well as dedicated race cars with or without A/C.
Combined with our supercharger bracket and billet tensioner, you have the ultimate Corvette supercharger drive system.
Requires modification of the stock alternator / power steering bracket or we can supply one that has been properly modified.
We want you to have the best experience possible when dealing with us both before and after the sale. You can always talk to a sales manager, the owner and head designer, or one of our techs who is infinitely knowledgeable on how the products operate and are installed. You won’t get a minimum wage customer service rep that knows nothing outside his or her script. You’ll get great advice based on many years of experience every time.
We’re happy to help you with your DIY install questions or product inquiries even after hours. The phones forward to either a Manager or Owner to help with both. Remembering that we are on Pacific time, you can generally get help until 9PM on weekdays and weekends alike. It’s something we started when the company was very young and have found it to be an invaluable resource to our customers.
