Default Alternator belt kicking my a$$ - i feel stupid

06 WRX wagon minimal mods, Stg 2 - 56k miles

so i'm replacing both of my accessory belts...the AC belt was looking rough and the alternator belt was shredded very bad (very bad!)

sooo...i hit the parts store, grab some Gates Micro V AT belts and cross reference the part numbers myself to make sure the counter jockey is correct

The AC belt goes on easy, but the alternator belt seems like it's a 1/2" short - it is Gates K050345 / 5PK880

i have completely loosened the alternator adjuster, and pushed it down so it would be completely slack and the belt won't even go on - this is a dumb 20 minute job...i'm at my wit's end. What am i missing?!
