    Adjust them tighter until the squealing is gone. Pulleys dont cause squeals, incorrect tension does

    i tightened it pretty good, and the tension seemed about right, maybe they need to be tighter with these pulleys im not sure.

    or, the different crank pulley that jackson uses has made the pws pulley slightly off-straight.

    hmm so should i try to use a stock pulley since maybe the aem one is a little farther out?? i looked at the belts while the motor was running, and didnt see any type of deflection or wobble but maybe i should just try it first and see if it helps does anyone have a ps pulley?

    while running, and in neutral, blip the throttle body by hand... see if you can see it flex and hear the squell
