    I mounted my compressor and noticed the pulley has an extra groove than the rest of my system. Is this normal? The belt sits on it, but doesn't look right.

    Call the company. talk to their support staff. You paid a lot for their set up.

    I looked at their website catalog. It seems they only have 7 and 8 groove compressors when the LS set up uses a 6 groove.

    Looking to see what others have experience.

    I think mine is the same, i.e. one extra groove. I can look tonight to be sure. I am thinking that the Sanden compressors are sort of universal, and other applications may use a 7 rib belt.

    My compressor came with my Holley accessory drive kit, so I don't think I have this issue. I can check tonight though and share what mine looks like.

    I called them, all their sure fit kits that use serpentine get the same compressor pulley. Weird....
