Default Pully puller

I am thinking about getting a 3.4" pully from PFYC.com , but I would also have to buy the pully puller. I was wondering if I maybe did buy the pully and one of you has a pully puller, would you be willing to loan it? I would pay for shipping both ways. That'd be awesome, i can't justify spending $120 for the pully puller just to use it once.

also, is the 3.4 pully going to cause the supercharger to have a shorter life span? I currently have 99,300 miles on the car, I don't want to do anything that is going to hurt it.

you have to buy a special pully puller because they are pressed on with 6 tons of force from the factory.

This is the puller.

For the m90 you will need the speacial puller. Anything else and you run the risk of damaging the pulley and the nose cone.

It is press fitted on the SC but with the speacial puller it can ge removed without to much hassell (or so I've heard).

Someplace used to have a puller for rent, but I don't remember who.

FYI: I am a series 1 SC, so I am a keyed pulley (strap wrench and a soket work for mine ) and everything mentioned above is what I've gathered, not personal experience, but I would expect a similar response from anyone who has done it.

The 3.4 pulley is not going to hurt your blower. Yes, it will give it a slightly shorter life span but the blower will still outlast the engine by a longshot. You can rent the puller from a few places that sell it, but it is $30 plus shipping and you have to pay a $130 deposit. Where are you in Michigan? If you are not to far, you can come here (just oustide of lansing) and I can change it for you, or you can use the puller and change it yourself.

sweet, thanks for the offer man, but I don't think I'd be able to make that drive because school is starting. :( I live about 20 miles from kalamazoo, so it'd probably be a 2, 3 hour drive for me. I definately appreciate the offer though.

One last question, does the 3.4 pully reduce your gas mileage?

Well, since you are putting on a smaller pulley the engine will have to work harder to spin the blower because it has to spin it at higher speeds. (Think of leverage with a wrench...the longer the wrench, the easier it is to turn, well with a smaller pulley you are shortening the wrench so there has to be more force to spin it) So, technically it should reduce gas mileage. You probably will not notice a difference in gas mileage on the freeway, but in town you will notice a loss because you will probably have your foot in it more, or just because the car will make more power at the same throttle positions as before, so most see a decrease in city mileage with a smaller pulley. I would be very suprised if you lost more than 1 or 2 tenths of a MPG on the freeway because of it though.

I may be able to come there in a month or 2, but that is probably too long, but if you haven't gotten your pulley installed by then, I will see if I can come if you want, but like I said it will be a month or 2 from now. I figured I would offer though, the pulley tool doesn't do much good sitting on the shelf, why not use it once in a while.

I have the pulley boys puller. But would require a deposit or something. And maybe a $20 fee. Hate to be that way but there are parts that have to be replaced after so many pulls. Let me know, i can get it UPSed as soon as I get the deposit.

would you maybe be interested in sending it by UPS as a loan? I would pay for shipping both ways. I totally understand though if you don't want to do that. I can't believe these pullers cost this much. :(
