Tighten it up!

Serpentine conversions are more compact in most engine bays - so beside adding function they will give more room for other components. We can spec the right set-up that works with your car whether it has AC or not, and give it a super slick look up front.

In most cases, yes! But we will also have to add a power steering gear or rack as well.


Maybe - but most belt throwing problems are related to improper pulley alignment. A serp drive will cure that - but we can also just align you pulleys with the stuff you have.


It really depends on the engine you are putting it on - and in some cases the look you are going for. We can guide your choice based on what we know - and our design eye.
