Default Parts for less

Bought a new V6 idler pulley (tensioner pully) from a Saab parts store and found the lip too small resulting in the nut plate compressing the pully so it would not turn. Looked around at other parts for $45 & 65. Found (Ohio Co) to be a reliable supplier with the correct lip for $15.39! Part made by Goodyear in Canada labled "Gatorback" belt tensioning systems.

They also sent a very nice fender cover for 8.95. Both parts shipped overnight for 29.29.

FYI: also bought a dual exhaust MagnaFlow #12138 for $91 from Summit Racing. Hard to find any reasonably priced dual mufflers - a definite plus being a MagnaFlow. Shop by Googling the part # and see favorably priced units.

Hope this helps
