RSS under pulley: can I reuse the crank pulley bolt?

I've been postponing this install due to lazyness. Now it's time. I called rss to see If I could reuse my crank pulley bolt and I didn't really get a confident answer but he said for my year yes I can reuse it. Just wanted to know if anyone has reused it before without issues?

Thanks

There was a writeup on here very recently covering this.
IIRC, they are not reusable. The bolt stretches when torqued to spec, similar to many head bolts.

How about the belt, then? I guess that has to be changed as well, right?

I have the RSS underpulley, I used the exact same bolt, I have driven the car in a very spirited fashion without any problem, as for the belt, it's a different size, replace the bearings in the rollers too, they are cheap at napa.

bolt replace

I reused my original bolt, no problems so far... that bolt looks like it belongs in a tank, how does it stretch?

I called Porsche and the part is like only 4 dollars so ill just switch it just incase. But I thought with the RSS UP you can reuse the same belt?

Eggactly, I would only add mine was pristine, zero corrosion or thread corruption.

If anyone wants the roller bearing numbers or the gates belt number message me, I have both in my car log.

I have the 4" pulley, and replaced the belt with a shorter one, although I believe on your RSS pulley (which is slightly larger), that many have used the stock belt, and the belt tensioner should take care of the slack just fine.

In past I've read articles, wherein boxster and cayman owners claimed to have used the original belt. How they were able to accomplish that is beyond my understanding. When I installed my new under drive pulley, albeit BBI's product, I discovered that the oem belt was clearly too long .

Where can I get the belt and bearing? I googled the belt part number and found a site but it says its for mercury cougars...

You can get the bearings and the belts right at NAPA, trust me, I made extra round trips due to the same information, do what makes you happy or take my advise and get:

skf bearings 6203-2rsj (same for tensioner & roller, best quality available at napa) and the gates belt number I gave you. You will need a bearing punch or similar drift to drive out the old bearings.
