Alright, I am at my wit's end now. For about 10 minutes after I start my car, my belt squeals like mad! It also chips at high RPMs. I have replaced: the power steering pulley, Idler pulley, the entire tensioner, and the belt itself. I have checked every pulley and all of them sound fine on their own. What the heck am I missing? It's cold out. Put when I first got the car it was cold and it didn't squeal. The sound does go away after like 10 minutes... but god it is super loud.

Have you checked to see IF the outer ring of the crank damper is becoming separated? How about "run out" of the crank damper? IE does the belt move in and out as the motor runs?
