yesterday, me, 1337ssei and one of my buddies with a modded gtp installed a 3.4" intense mps with a 3.5" tensioner pulley (more on this part below), napa drilled and slotted rotors and hawk pads.
this little guy proved to be pretty tricky to get on.
we also installed these.....actually i did
gapped to .050"
yes, thats my hand (insert insults about how scrawny i am)
like my nice towel? its so i dont get arthritis at teh age of 19 from the rear plugs.
i think the rotors look sweet. i know that they shouldnt be cross drilled, but thats all napa had. we'll see how they hold up.
we got everything on and everything looked good but we got the same belt rub as mcgrath. so we ended up reinstalling the stock tensioner and its in descent shape. the belt stays on pretty good, theres some slack between the bottom of the sc pulley and the tensioner when the engine is reved and the motor decelerates. we have purchased a gatorback 715 belt and will install it next week.
also, we took it out with the scanner after the install and got some semi strange kr readings. there was none most of the way through 1st gear but right at the top there was about 3-4* and then it stayed around there until the top of 2nd when it went to 5-6, with just a spike to 7*. we were thinking its a fuel issue. but we are going to rescan next week when we put on the belt and see if its still there.
to sum it up. the oversized tensioner idea seems like it wont work.
