Default Upgrading crank pulley

When installing an A&A kit is it recommended (since it will all be apart)or is the stock one good enough?

They fail even when stock, personally I would recommend it. I went 8 rib on mine that way when it came time to do a 8 rib setup it was already in place. You can still run a 6 rib off of a 8 rib setup (At least with the ECS kit, I would assume A&A is no different but maybe someone can confirm that)

I know it all adds up, but may as well do a cam then too if you're swapping the balancer.

Cam was previously done.

So is this what I should look into?

I'd go ahead and do the 10% overdrive while you're doing it. Just be aware that it will increase boost a bit. ColoradoSpeed had the best prices from what I found.

Get the 10% over up front, even if you have to pulley up on the blower it is worth it.

You should be able to get one for $500. IW is the way to go.

Great, thanks.

Any other special bolts or pins or keys that I might need, or is it just a straight swap?

You will need a crank pin kit unless you have an aftermarket crank with a key, also a new crank bolt

Straight swap besides needing to pin it just like the stock one. The stuff A&A sent will work.

I know you can get them cheaper than that though if you look around.

Great info. Thanks

Can the A&A install be done with the car on jack stands? Also if I do the install myself can the car be driven as is to a tuner or do I have to trailer it?

Easy on jackstands.

You have a few options on that 2nd part. You could send your ECU for a base tune, find a local to flash in a file for you, tow it, or drive it there with the stock injectors and just swap injectors at the tuner. If you do the last one just don't get on it at all.

That's the hard part, but it's what I did. I drove close to 100 miles with the stock injectors, then swapped them and got it tuned. Just need to act like there's an egg on the gas pedal.

Crap, the IW balancer sticks out too far for the A&A system (6 rib). I don't want to convert to an 8 rib system (just spending $ I'll never use up to it's potential), so this is what A&A recommends.

Does the ATI fit with the 6 rib A&A system? Do you have a part #?

I don't think so. Matt@FPS told me the A&A kit is picky on crank pulleys.
