My only guess would be something isn't quite aligned properly and at a certain engine speed, for a given duration = lose the belt. I would think it would be an installation issue, but it could be a manufacturing issues for whomever the source is.

i fitted a system resently a customer brought into to me, i noticed that the belt didn't have much clearance to a lug on the front of the supercharger so i cut it off and i then made a alignment guard on the front to direct the belt if it wanted to fall off, obviusly i checked the belt alignment also, and the belt hasn;t come off and the guy gives it a pretty hard time, only difference in the kit we did and possibly yours is, that we did our own fuel system and didn't use the computer supplied i just cmr tuned it.

hope this helps maybe a little

Remove the idler pully and bring it to a auto parts store . Match it up with a pulley with side edges on it . The belt will never fall off but the belt edge will show wear if the alighnment is off.
