    It is widely known the OEM tensioner is bank for us Gen1 MS3/MS6 guys. With 98K on the odometer, I figured it is time to swap the belt and tensioner. Got the OEM belt from @EdgeAutosport.com, as I remember issues from Auto Zone/Advanced and their belts not fitting. http://edgeautosport.com/mazda-oem-serpentine-belt-mazdaspeed-3-2007-2009/

    Gates makes a tensioner. # 38408. Amazon has it with Prime for $38 shipped to me. I get it in a couple days, then will install it when I get an install day, as I have a TON to do.
    Anyway, this is it the pulley you want in lieu of


    Will post up how-to soon.
