I know on the Series 2 supercharged engines, there are 2 belts, one for just the supercharger and 1 for the accessories. Is that the same for the Series 1 supercharged engines in the 95 Riviera and Park Avenue Ultra? Do any models run a belt that drives the S/C and something else?

OK, I was on another car forum, and believe it or not, there is a guy that wants to bypass the supercharger by using a shorter belt. All so he can use regular gas. I thought he could just remove one belt like the Series 2, but apparently, I was wrong. Not something I would do, but it is his car.

I'd have to guess that removing the belt would reduce power considerably and causing his gas consumption to rise, but what do I know.
He's messing with an integral part of the design.
Please let us know if you happen to find out the result.

Oh, I know what the result will be.  I told him how ill advisable that would be.  I tried to encourage him to simply put 87 regular in the car and not drive it aggressively.  I think that would be entirely doable without any downsides.  Keeping it out of boost, or minimal boost, the KR would probably be negligible.

What about the Boost Bypass Actuator. Same system on the Series 1 3800?
