Yeah dude, I bought an aftermarket one from autozone, cheaper than a factory replacement. get a gatorback belt while you're at it

Yup, no complaints about the belt. Cheaper than a factory replacement, doesn't squeek, and it just looks badass, lol

well i had to revise this thread in case other people was having same problem. i took a closer look into what coulda been making the sqeaking noise. I noticed my harmonic balance is dancing back and fourth a lil. Makes sense that it only does it when cold and goes away after it warms up. Theres rubber bushing in it and when it cold i guess its hard ,but now because it dancing i suppose its puttin a lil stress on the tensioner making it squeak a lil. So im going to replace the harmonic balance though i still believe is a lil premature on a 06 that just turned 49k.
