Default Debating whether to go pulleyboys quikchange or zzp modular

I like them both, but the pulleyboys offers the 3.5 pulley and looks better ,I would like to start out with the 3.5 and then maybe skip to the 3.25 when i get more mods done. What'* your guys take on the choice?

I bought the zzp modular set up and pulley puller. I went with 3.3" and 3.2" (race gas) to go along with my new headers and cai. I think the zzp one looks nice and its blank so you can custom engrave it (if you wish). I'll take pics once i get it from zoomer, it was sent on friday at the busyest time of the year.

My preference is Pulley Boys. He makes them himself, and really understands what he'* doing. I've chatted with Brian on several occasions. Nothing against ZZP, but PB is the subject matter expert when it comes to pulleys.

The guy is smart as hell, and has great designs. Really nice guy, too. He always returns customer email (you can't call him, Brian is deaf), and is a WEALTH of knowledge. He practices what he preaches, too. He has a 98 GTP.

Read the FAQ up in Techinfo on pulleys. I coaxed him into doing that for us some time ago, and he is a member here, too.

Now, I don't know much about the pulley boys system, but from what I was told, they will make any size you want for you. I don't konw if that is true, but if it is it seems like a nice system. I always recommend the ZZP system to people because of the fact that they have SO many choices for pulley size, so you can pick the exact pulley thats right for you, and the fact that it is 8 rib, so if you start getting slip you can upgrade to an 8 rib belt. But if you don't plan on getting serious enough to need 8 rib, and you can get any size you want (which I have heard is true), then it sounds like a nice system. And I know it looks good because I have seen it before. So I think personally if I were you I would go for the Pulley Boys.

Hope that helps.

Shawn

Pulleyboys it is,Ordered the 3.5 with quikchange system.My mods are minimal so far So I think the 3.5 is a good choice.My future plans are to purchase some ported manifolds or headers with high flow cat along with a zzp tb to let the old 3.8L breathe a little better and also to make a custom cold air box for my ADTR#3 intake ,I'll then go a with and a 3.25 pulley ,possibly 1.9 rockers and finally a dhp pcm
