...a extra pully of slack?

Get a repair manual and verify the path of the belt, over the pullys.

You can always use the book for torque specs.

when you hold the tensioner to put the new belt on is it giving resistance? if not then your tensioner is bad...otherwise id say to recheck your routing even though you have already double checked it.

You're probably wrapping it around the pulleys wrong. They changed the belt and routing of it on some models.
