I have never heard anyone say serpentine belts are less efficient, in fact, just the opposite although the difference either way is probably negligible. If you want the longer life and dependability of a serpentine belt, you can buy the pulleys for each drive/driven part and have it work and rotate the same as the V system did. You'll probably never get your money back from the longer life of the serpentine because you usually have to buy high dollar ones from March or other manufacturer, but money is almost never the reason we modify our cars.
