So I ordered the gen2 puller from ZZP yesterday and much to my delight saw that it was being shipped and should be here today. So i sat on the porch like a kid waiting for christmas to come to no avail. I come back to the computer and according to my tracking info it was delivered to my porch at 12:30. I go back out and look around all over the porch, in the mail box but no puller.
Just for laughs i thought to check the neighbors porch and sure enough with my name and address on it is my highly anticipated package from ZZP. So i get to work seeing as i only have 2 hours til i need to leave for my night class. Disconnect the ground cable, move my overflow bottle and maneuver some AC lines out of the way and im set.
The 3.8 pulley pulled off with hardly any trouble. I have never dealt with ZZP before but this puller is great. 99SSEi had tried to help me with his thrasher unit and after using the gen2 zzp puller i would never want to go back to using a horseshoe type puller ever again. I highly recommend it if anyone is looking to buy their own puller.
Soooo... the hub for the MPS went on easy as well with an extra hand from my little brother and i took some pictures...
So i was running low on time and still had to get the AL104'* in and i managed to put my hub ALL THE WAY ON BACKWARDS! I didn't even put it together until i went to put the pulley on the hub. I did a search for MPS AND backwards on here and it looks like no one else has done this before. So i panicked a bit, took the camry to class and then went to Lowes and bought some 6.0x1x30 hex bolts and some washers. Thankfully they held and it didn't damage my hub and i was able to pull the pulley then flip the hub and reinstall.
Let it warm up and idle for awhile while i rearranged the driveway to get out of the garage and then me and the little bro went for a bit of a test run. after a leisurely cruise to the country i got on it a bit and wow, the difference the pulley makes is amazing. KR is still ok i think, i only floored it once and in 60* night air on 93 BP gas i was seeing a max of 4.2^ of KR. I know im probably going to get a 3.5" to run in the summer. Does the PCM have to "learn" a pulley the way it does other mods? should the amount of KR i see go down or is this mid 4'* spike going to be the norm atleast for that air temp?
