Any one know what the ideal setting is on the gen5 tensioner? The tensioner has an arrow and increments on it. Checked the manual and can’t find the ideal setting.

From the manual:

Install the supplied supercharger belt by following the routing diagram. Once in position, lock the adjustable idler pulley by torqueing the SHCS to 30 lbs-ft. NOTE: Set the tensioner position so the arrow points to 100 (80%-85% travel) by removing slack via the adjustable idler pulley. If setup at max open position, the tensioner will consistently hit its stop. If setup near its full close position, then the tensioner will not continue to apply torque to the belt during belt stretch and will allow it to jump or walk
