Yeah I know you can do it, its just pain in the ***. I ran my car like that for about 2 days then just hooked it back up. Hack do you have an ac compressor? You know when the ac is off it's really acts the same as an idler pulley. I would route it how spooled up's diagram, thats how I routed mine when I did it.

if u route yoru belt that way it wont work... the wp will not spin.. if it does it wont at higher rps, and the tensioner dont bend back that far...

trust me I just got done working with my belt.. it wont work..

if u want a ac, ps, wp, alt, and crank.. the belt is a 850 (k060850, 850k6, 5060850)
