I've seen a few threads here where shark owners were retrofitting serpentine belts/pulleys ... some with less than ideal results. CV Products of Thomasville NC www.cvproducts.com 1-800-448-1223 manufactures some really well made race car setups utilizing either GY Gatorback serpentine or conventional V-belts. Perhaps they can be adapted to sharks ... dunno. Many circle track cars & trucks around here (WC guys too) use CVP setups. Their quality is superb! CVP has a myriad of other well-made USA stuff ... i.e. very nice oil pans.

Why bother? Most of the serpentine systems are "underdrives", and cause charging and cooling problems in normal around-town use. "Race-car" serpentine systems are designed for sustained high crankshaft rpm where the accessories are driven at normal speed. They look great at shows, but won't work as well on the street as the stock system.
