    I'm in the process of prepping the engine, and I'm trying to figure out what to do with the A/C compressor. As far as I can tell from the build video and pictures, it appears that the pulleys are in the same configuration as a base model.

    I just wanted to confirm that running a no AC belt from another model wouldn't be an issue. I believe a 34.5", 5 rib belt is what I'd need?

    That's correct. TC and base pulley configurations are the same.

    I left my AC compressor on as a pulley. I deleted the guts and just use it as a bracket to hold the pulley. I then capped off the ports with a 3D printed cap my son made for me.

    Quoted from Justin's build thread. As mentioned, the same belt configuration will work for SS/TC.

    I installed an OEM belt I found on eBay for like $20. The GM part number is 12634322. It fits perfectly. I didn't have any problems with the tensioner.
