TR6 is two heatranges colder than stock. Why are you doing that BEFORE the pulley? They'll foul out on you.

IF you have a scantool AND fuel pressure gauge, go with a 2.2" pulley and be prepared to buy a 2.3" or have your exhaust manifolds ported if you get KR.

If you don't own BOTH a scantool AND a fuel pressure gauge, go with a 2.3", and get a running scan somewhere anyway.

The reasons? You have to know if you get KR. I can destroy your engine. It'* not just a plug/play thing. In addition, most cars of your vintage are showing signs of low fuel pressure which is not apparent with a stock pulley, but VERY apparent after adding a smaller pulley/more flow. Running lean at the top end under boost causes BOOM.

After the pulley change, NGK TR55 V-power plugs gapped at .055". They are one heatrange colder than stock.

I already answered that question. It depends on whether you have a scantool and fuel pressure gauge.

Both should be purchased BEFORE a pulley ideally.
