The tensioner and pulley are actually two seperate pieces. The pulley is a reverse threaded bolt.

If the tensioner is no longer working properly, you should replace it. To my knowledge they are not a repairable part.

Tuneup - 50 bucks

CAI - under 80 if you do a home made cai

Paint? $2000 is normal for a decent job that looks factory


Racing wheels? depends on size and quality of the tires.

Let'* not stray on the topics that are unrelated to the pulley topics, K?

You can't melt a SC pulley. I think we need a better description or a picture of what you're talking about.

Can you PLEASE put "96 SSEi" in your signature?
