Default pulley sizes

i've done a bit of reading and am a little confused... so, this should be easy for many of you!

i've got a 95 SSEi, what is the stock size SC pulley and whats a reasonable size to go down to.
i think, if i read correctly, its in the upper 2.xx

are the newer SSEi'* equiped with larger pulleys?

your 95 will have a 2.8 stock......for an upgrade you swhould put NO LESS than a 2.5 on the car

you will need a good intake, 180 thremo and a highflow cat at the very least to prevent KR with that pulley

Off topic, but realted to the poster.

Darrell...weren't you having transmission troubles? If so..I'd sort them out before moving forward on a pulley. (BTW..cat is not needed, it is helpful though)

Know your fuel pressure and buy a scantool before swapping pulleys.

The trans issue seems to be related to my cruise controll issues being they only happen together. Either way, the Pulley won't happen untill mid to end of summer... by that itme any issues with the trans will be sorted out.

I'm planning a custom CAI and heat shield in about 2 months, so thats good...

I should probilby buy a scan tool when $$$ permits (my first mod??) sounds like they are very usefull.

when ever i need an exhause system put in i'll deff go with something high flow.

and isn't the stock thermostat only 190*? is it that much better to just drop 10*?

Stock is 195. Get a 180 at least. Depending on climate, you may want to drill the 180.

Get Chilton'* #28200, it'll walk you right through most easy procedures. Cheap, too.

I'd also suggest the high-speed fan override. There'* a few topics on that. It works very well with the 180 stat in the summer.

The override is almost a must with these cars, I love the over ride.
