    GH Impreza AC belt tensioner add on

    History: the 2008 Impreza up comes with a stretch-fit AC belt (4PK805) this belt is sold with a kit and costs around $650 locally. (OEM PN: 11718AA081)

    Now in order to save some money in the long run I decided to add a GD or GC AC belt tensioner to the GH and use a regular belt. With this said the savings are $500 since a normal original AC belt is around $150

    Items needed:

    1) AC belt tensioner assembly



    2) Two 12 bolts

    3) 4PK845 (OEM PN: 809214550 $170) this is a Legacy belt or 4PK855 (Bando $40)

    Everything is straight forward and bolt on

    Final result:

    Well I made it easy so you won't have to guess and try different sizes of belts...
