Re: Vortec Pulley...tried the search. (wr.millertime)

The 3.12" pulley that you have pictured, assuming that you are installing it on a Vortech (corrected: V9) unit for the VR6, will get you ~7 psi.....we have just supplied a Vortex member with a 3.14" and he told us that he was hitting 7psi. We also provided him with a 24# injectors EPROM, as he was running the....well.............24# injectors

C2
If you need that pulley, or any other diameter pulley, please let us know. We can also provide you with our new CAI, Dual idler pulley, brackets, etc.

Re: Vortec Pulley...tried the search. (C2Motorsports)

chris, I respectfully disagree. The v9 blower that nater is running (I assume you were speaking of him) produces less boost when spun with a similarly sized pulley in comparison to a v1 or v2. The vf stage one pulley (3.25") makes 5-6 psi, while a barely smaller 3.125" pulley makes double that on a v2. I can only imagine the blower and its gearing is the difference. In comparison, I gained ~2psi by switching to a pulley that was just under .3" smaller than my original. The .125 change from the VF pulley to AMS/Eurotech pulley is insignificant in my eyes, meaning only gaining 1psi or so.
The 3.125" vortech pulley ( the ONLY 7 rib Vortech makes ) was sold with the AMS and eurotech kits and produces this much boost (10-11psi) when tight and revved to 69-7000.

That was on a third gear dyno pull, I hope the video still works

If you dont believe me, ask scooter, twodubs, marty, sofa king, or anybody else who ran a v1 or v2 blower

Thanks Lee, I made the correction to my post, as I had put the wrong charger number down when I originally submitted it

You are earning that C2Motorsports jacket, now aren't you

C2

And those injectors are done now...
. Jeff Atwood did a great job tuning those injectors!!!!
Thanks for the pulley as well!!! Has been running perfect! Lines up with my belts and all perfectly!!!!
And as you said, I'm seeing a consistant 1lb increase (hitting 7psi in the cold weather)...As many of you know this v9 3.25 pulley is a bit under 6psi when it's warm.
Later,

Re: Vortec Pulley...tried the search. (leebro61)

kinda on the same subject, when i bought this kit, it came with the wrong chip, so i need a new one. i have 310 injectors with this set up, vr6 coilpack.
i talked to leebro briefly about chips, was wondering what chips you guys use, and how much u paid. thanks. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
