Thumbs up JD's supercharger belt tensioner

Well, I have been wanting one of these belt tensioners for my Vortech blower for a while now and I ordered JD's Performance's version. I haven't put it on yet but this thing is nice! All billet piece with serious looking hardware and not the thin little stuff either. I know Anderson Ford was the originator and but their piece is way too pricey. I got the tensioner/hardware for $40 to my door. Took about 3 days. Not bad at all. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone else is running the JD's unit? Just wanted to share.

I'm have this one (not installed yet) bought it from P-A Performance for $45. Not sure if it is the same as the JD unit?

The PA-Performance piece looks fairly similiar to the JD's piece. I can't wait to put it on and not have to worry about the hassle of tightening the belt the old fashion way. Either unit is a good investment for sure.

What hole should it be screwed into on the 'charger tensioner plate? Top or bottom hole? Seems like the bottom hole is the way to go, but it's a tight squeeze.
