How was the install on the pulley? Pretty quick n' easy? When you get a pulley for 8-Ball just go with a 2.2" and then you'll never drive hers again.
Except for after the first time he steps on the gas in his car and it bogs down a lot and then the engine blows up from detonation. Then he will have to drive hers. A 2.2" pulley is not a good idea on an M90, even with a lot of mods you don't want to go much smaller than 2.6" (and you would have to have a lot of mods to be able to run that size pulley). The M62 is what requires the little 2.2" pullies.

Pretty easy with the right tools...now that the hub is on I can switch pulleys with just 5 allen wrench screws. The pulley and plugs/wires took Big Jeff about an hour or so to do with me grilling him on mods and stuff. Prolly could have done it in less time if I wasn't bothering him. I highly recommend Intense'* stuff. They certainly know what they are doing with 3800 motors.

Are there any ways you can tell by markings what size pulley you have??

OOPS My bad...I meant 3.2 but they only have 3.25 anyway.

Thanks

Nice kill man. I raced a 2.0 eclipse, non-turbo during the summer and I have a non sc'rd bonneville but I killed him pretty badly, not sure what model it was, but it was pretty quick off the line, but I am thankful that the raw power and torque of bonnevilles can kill cars that there not suppose to. I love my bonnie, and your ssei looks great. I can't wait to get my ssei soon. I have noticed people talking about smaller pulleys for the supercharger makes it so much more powerful, why is that? Again great kill, people in eclipses think there all that in a bag of potato chips and then they lose to a 4 door family car, well that is what mine is considered. I love it. Take care man.

A smaller pulley causes the SC to spin faster, providing more boost. Other mods are required before doing that, and there are some drawbacks if not done correctly.
