Default Pulley questions.

Hey, what exactly do different sized pulleys do? How much of a gain could i get if i were to change pulley size? What size should i change to? How hard/easy of a procedure is this? Is it time consuming? Would i be able to do this? Please let me know. Just trying to get a little bit more out of the bonnie.

You will need a pulley puller for it.. it'* really not that hard ( I haven't changed the */C pulley..but have changed enough pulley'* on everything else )

A smaller pulley basically spins the */C faster so it increases your boost.. but @ the cost of more heat and wear on your */C. the more the air compresses.. the more heat it generates which may cause KR.. and the system will retard timing thus reducing power..

Get the intake, exhaust, and 180 thermostat done first, and perhaps a hi-speed fan override. Then go to a 2.2" pulley from www.pulleyboys.com

For the Series 1, you don't need a special pulley puller. A simple 3-jaw gear puller will work fine.

I don't know the exact gains from a Series I L67.

But I know on a Series II L67, going from a 3.8 to 3.4" pulley yields 25 to 30 HP with the proper supporting mods, and way over 30 ft-lbs. of torque.

I'm sure it would be very similar on a Series I engine.
