Hook up with a local. Find a local GP chapter or BC member that may have one, even if you have to drive 50 miles. It'll be worth it to have some help, as well.

Maybe hook up with ZZP? Im sure if you buy their mps they will install it for free. I know INTENSE does but ZZP would be closer.

The thing is. My dad is a mechanic that owns a shop. He has pulley tools, but I don't think he has the right one to do the M90 pulley properly.

I'm assuming everyone here used a pulley puller for the L67'*, so who still has one that would be willing to rent one out to me?

I'm very interested in the INTENSE quick change pulley system with the hub....think ZZP would put a competitors part on?

INTENSE charges 50 bucks to install pullies not purchased from them. If you drive down to columbus they will put it on for free if you get theirs. I don't know what ZZP woulud do but i'm sure you could ask.

We got a guy on in the Illinois Grand prix club. ILGPC.com who is the "pulley master" he does them for $10-15 bucks. Check your local GP club.

I Also thought it was amazing how much force is on that pulley, even with the right puller, my stock 3.8 did warp a little bit. Just threw it out. I have the ZZP mps system which I bought from intense a while back.

Now I'm ready for a 3.2 and decided to get the zzp 3.2, the intense unit will fit I know, I just want to keep my pulley black and somewhat stock looking, the Intense clear coated one looks nice but don't want to draw direct attention to it at the dealer while I'm still under GM warrenty service.

If your a gas watcher, with the MPS systems you could get a 3.8 to put on for road trips and get better mileage, than back to your street pully.

I admit, I do like the fact that ZZP'* MPS setup offers black pulleys. However, do they have the same quality as the INTENSE MPS setup? INTENSE says all over their site how other similar pulleys don't make good contact with the belt and you lose boost that way. Also, does the ZZP MPS include the bolts and allen wrench?

PS: Got some contact info on that "Pulley Master"?

zzp mps comes with the bolts. My 3.2 I think is a little off balance and is causing the sc snout to leak sc oil a bit. If I take the belt off and look at the pulley i notice one rib has been rubbed clean of the black like not all the grooves are the same. Depending on how my KR is going im moving down to a 3.1 or 3.0 INTENSE pulley.

My 3.4 from zzp was great so it may have just been a one off bad pulley or it may even be the seal in the nose of the SC but the rubbing away of thte color on the rib suggests something isnt right on the pulley itself. I've seen INTENSE'* pulleys though and they are top notch...

I think everyone knows im INTENSE biased but their stuff works. I don't want to put down other vendors and I wouldn't but in this case its a personal experiance that im sharing to help you make a decision. Both ZZP and INTENSE MPS'* require an extra removal plate if you want to pull the hub off at some point so keep in mind that added expense.
