Manual Timing Belt Tensioner Conversion

I WANT TO START DOING THINGS TO MY LUDE TO GET IT READY FOR A SUPERCHARGER. I HAVE READ THAT YOU SHOULD PUT A MANUAL TIMING TENSIONER IN BECAUSE THE AUTO TENSIONER ISN'T RELIABE ESPECIALLY WITH A SUPERCHARGER. I WAS WONDERING IF THERE IS ANYTHING SPECIAL YOU HAVE TO DO OR IF IT'S A STRAIGHT SWAP OUT. ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED THANKS.

it shouldn't be too much harder but it will take longer (damn japs and there small fingers..j/k). u also should look into doing a few other things before u put a supercharger in there. like change your fuel filter and other things that are going to be real hard to get to once the supercharger in there.
