Default Ported blower install.... need help

Hey guys, just put a stage 4 ported blower on my car, easy in stall no problems what so ever.
when i started the car however it made this un godly loud squeel (not the s/c whine) that started, then went away then started up again. I did not let the car run for to long in fear of hurting anything. Any ideas or directions of what i should look at/for would be of great help to me!

This was a used blower i bought off this site from a member, said it worked great.

Maybe something belt or pulley related, are you running the same pulley sizes and belt size?

First guess would be belt.

x3 on the belt. Do you have an aftermarket tensioner on it?

Other ideas would be vac leaks that are causing whistling, bearings in the blower that might be dry since the last time it ran, or most likely, the belt(s).

With it being used it could be the bearings, how many miles on it?

Check the tension on the belt. On my car, if it doesn't sit right in the middle, screams like crazy. Also, I suggest a gatorback belt.

A squealing belt will look just fine. Are the gatorback belts the green ones? That's what everyone I know runs.

still why would going from a blower with a 2.76 to a ported blower with a 2.93 running the same style of belt cause this to happen?

Because the tension isn't right.

Why did you go to a ported blower and a bigger pulley? Did you put a larger lower on I hope?

There is an indicator on the tensioner that shows belt tightness. There are 2 raised marks, one is raised more than the other. If the arrow is pointing right in the middle where the raised marks meet you are golden. If not you need to adjust belt sizes.

Did you change belts at all when you went to the new blower setup? If not your belt is probably too tight because you stepped up a pulley size, but never got a bigger belt. I would suggest stepping up one belt size if you never changed the belts. Too much tension or too little will cause the car to scream like a banshee.

The Gatorbacks are black, but have provisions on the belt that travel diagonally to the ribs that allow the belt to be more quiet than say a Gates Micro-V. Gates Micro-V belts operate quietly if you have exact pulley alignment.

I still looks like the belt tension is too tight. Where do you live?

If I did not have to head out in a little bit I would stop by. What belt size are you running right now and what were you running before?

I am almost positive the belt being too tight is causing the loud whine.
