Belt sizes

I looked at the drivebelt of the SC motor compared to the 3.8 NA, 5.0, and 4.6 and looking at the belt, it was much thicker than what the NA motors have. Did Ford use a 7-8 rib belt on the SC motors? I was just wondering why they put a larger rib belt on the motor.

they put an 8 rib on the supercharger belt to keep it from slipping

Pick up gatorbacks at autozone for like 30 or so I think....unless you dont like those, think i'll go with them in a few weeks. I really need some tires first though, think my rear are gonna blow out from dry rot.
