I have the GTP super charged model. The belt came off the super charger due to a bad idler pulley. The front one, just under the distributor. My question is the car drivable without this belt? I can replace it myself but I need to get to work for 2 days driving about 70 miles 1st.

Because there would be no boost from the supercharger I would have to say no because the car would have absolutely no power and would screw up computer readings as it would be trying to cut the fuel way back from lack of air. So I would still have to say no on this point. Especially going 70 miles or so. When you replace belt make sure to replace tensioner as well as that probably lost tension due to age.
