Hello,


I need to know urgently if the attached pic is really the DLM tensioner for Paxton for a SRT10 Viper. I mean $250.00 for this little part? No more parts like pulley or other parts are inlucluded????

I hope you can answer me, because I am lost of words...

Thank you and best regards from Spain

Hello Carlos,

That is not a tensioner itself, it's a tensioner assist. They are made by hand and take more time to construct than you may think. Other than the ****** block, it is NOT a converted Paxton tool. The rod is made out of grade 5 cad plated all-thread, the ends are welded stainless steel, grounded down and the loop is made to catch the tensioner bolt without interference. The hook is mild steel and made to break if you apply excessive tension on it.

I can assure you it will work to recover lost horsepower from belt-slip, which is the worst byproduct of Supercharged cars. The stock Paxton tensioner will not work by itself on post modified cars.

I field many calls per day from people that ask why they are down from 25 - 300+ horsepower on the dyno after adding modifications to their Blower cars. I send them the unit and after they bolt it on they call me back and thank me over and over!

I use the same unit on my car as well. It's the cheapest mod for the money and it works!

Please try it and let me know of your experience- thanks again!

Best regards,
Doug Levin

That little gizmo worked excellent on my built Paxton car. It was much sturdier than the original Paxton unit, and I was able to quickly eliminate belt slippage on the dyno with that part.

Sorry to revive an old thread, but I think I'm having the same issue as the OP with my paxton kit on my Viper. I don't have the tensioner assist tool at all on mine. Since the attachments have been deleted, can someone point me at the replacement part Doug was talking about? Thanks.
