Thats cool except its not a tensioner, its merely a brace, that may sound like nit-picking but there is a difference between the two, the primary function of the brace is to protect the belt and help the shafts run smoothly as opposed to applying tension to the belt. the v-onr-r/rr has a tensioner however it is necessary to provide clearance around the exhaust header. Some cheaper cars have or need tensioners because the belts are made from very thin cheap crap (eg Colt etc) but remember once again if you need to retension it means the belt has stretched and therefore is not meshing correctly with the pulleys anyway!

The brace is good to use right? I think it would make it easier on the shafts and bearings?
