I'm a big fan of Rodney Dickman and his products. And many of his products are in my Fiero. However, this is one of the rare cases when I would recommend another product over Rodney's. The idler pulley does help, but you'll still need to tighten the belt from time to time. If you install a self-adjusting belt tensioner, you'll never have to tighten the belt again. PFF member Dodgerunner sells such an item. I have one on my V6, and I love it.
I agree, and was not going to mention it, but since you did, I will address our thought process. I agree with you about Dodgerunner's setup being a little better because it is self adjusting. The reason we went with Rodney's was price, and price alone. Rodney's is $78 and Dodgerunner's is somewhere in the neighborhood of of $120, if memory serves me correct. My son had to pay for this. he is in high school, works 2 days a week, and is on a tight budget. This represented about a $40 savings for him. He made the right decision for him, and I fully support him in it.
