I did the same thing, and a vibration I was getting occasionally under WOT has not reared its head since. I see no reason for this at all, and the vibration may show up again, but all I can figure is perhaps the old belt was removed and installed backwards. It was in good condition too, but obviously needed to be changed after 13 years. *shrug*
