The pulley doesn't mater, if it has one it will just go in the box with 4 others. What I would suggest is sending me a Gen3 and a MPS pulley. I'll install that pulley no charge.

As long as it'* in good shape. That would correct my only concern about selling this one, and that'* not having another on my shelf.

Those mods would really make this supercharger come alive. But this supercharger will work just fine even without those. Also those can be added at any time. You might be in luck in spring, I'm installing a cm so my HS 1.9:1 rockers are coming out.
