get a top ribbed belt from the bomb dealer. expensive but worth it, they seem to work better then the aftermarkets.
I've used Gates and I think they are junk.
Dayco is ok but the also do not offer the top ribbed belts.
I'd go bomb, but you hafta pay out the ass.

The Dayco belt is tough. Too tough. It always wants to stay round. If you have belt deflection set tight that darn belt will slow your idle speed loading up the engine resulting in fouled plugs. Loosen up the clutches and you loose performance. Stick with the OEM belt. The harder belts are good heavy snow on warm days. At least it will loosen up and still take the heat.
