GTA belt tension? do u need a dial gauge?

guys,

cambelt change on gta. do u need to use a dial gauge to tension the belt? ive heard that you can simply line up the two marks on the tensioner (as you adjust the belt) which sets the correct tension and then lock it into position?

thanks!

No you don't need a dial gauge just line the marks up on the tensioner but make sure all 4 cam pulleys are slack or you are wasting your time because the belt tension would still be wrong
