Ill take one of the smaller (stage II) pulley's. Hopefully these can start sooner since my SDS is not on the car just yet.
Well I would need it before you would get a Stage 2 pulley. So we can get both sizes done hopefully at the same time. Either way you would get one free, if you send me in the stage 1 for R&D.I also have the Stage I pulley that you were interested in awhile back that ill send you in the trade deal.
PM sent. Thanks.Ok PM me your address and ill get it in the mail ASAP. My new SDS (Rebuilt) in on its way to my house, for now im going to just keep the Stage II (Small) Shaft Pulley, wait to receive the Ultra Grip Pulley then see how your results come out!
Well this is where I need volunteers with daily drivers for. My car is mostly a track car, and I make at most 2-3k per season on it. So I need someone who is willing to test the pulley and see how they hold up past a certain amount of miles.Are there going to be any tests to show how long a belt will actually be useable with the pulley? (Basically anything to confirm the 20K miles you stated)
Yes this will be kind of a trial and error. To find the right belt size with these, it shouldn't change since the diameter will be the same as the RIPP ones, not to change the way these cars build boost.I'll test a stage 2 pulley.
I can also supply Dayco belts pretty cheap if you can get me a part number of what you use.
I use a different belt since I have the SDS on a 1 Gen Sebring. :ndance:
I was just saying if people need new belts or want to put on new belts when they put on the new pulley.Yes this will be kind of a trial and error. To find the right belt size with these, it shouldn't change since the diameter will be the same as the RIPP ones, not to change the way these cars build boost.
I anything I am sure I can always find something smaller, if you want to build boost really fast. But the size of the the small pulley about 2.65" is plenty fine to build 22psi with the RIPP overdrive pulley.
So I will keep these the same size, unless you will want something custom ordered.
As far as belts. I think its best for everyone to measure it themselves. Best way to do is to use thicker wire (16-18 gauge) something that does not stretch easily. THen run it around the pulley's then use a tape measure and find out what you need more or less.
I will add you to the testers. I need one more person who is willing to help out the Club3G community.
Yes I understand what you are saying.I was just saying if people need new belts or want to put on new belts when they put on the new pulley.
I run a different size belt than the 3G cars do. I've got a custom made crank pulley and my belt configuration is different than the 3G cars.
Well I don't have the A/C anymore nor the RIPP idler pulley. I just run the crank, alternator, blower, and tensioner (OEM). Pretty much it. I think just getting a cog system built would be a large expense and you would have to employ a company that builds these and does all the calculations for size of the cogs. It is all pretty iffy and would take alot of research and a company willing to build one.We could almost use a COG belt but the damn AC compressor pulley is the issue. If you want to go without AC the COG route is available.
Not all Vortech blowers can use a cog system, FYI.Yes thats true, just getting all the COG pulleys made and working is the only issue, I personally think COG is the best route to take. But we will see how this goes.
its great for people running the SDS but the lack of interest goes hand in hand with the lack of boosted 3Gs. great work on getting the ball rolling on these though :yesway:I am surprised more people are not interested in this product.
