Default 3.4 pulley

does anyone have the scoop on how to install a 3.4 pulley on A&A V3 supercharger kit. I've purchased the 3.4 with matching belt. I want to exchange them out this week but I don't know how to loosen up the tensioner to put the new belt on .

It will depend upon the version of the bracket you have. Look on YouTube for videos on how to replace the belt, that'll get you 90% of the way there. Replacing the pulley is pretty simple. Use a SMALL amount of anti-seize on the shaft and blue Loctite on the retaining bolt. Torque to 25-30 ft lbs per Vortech.

Does there happen to b a slight growl from the blower just off idle? When I’m in drive with brake alittle gas and it growls or vibrates, then goes away after another 1-200 rpm. Is it normal? Thanks

Default YSI boost question

So I had my car on the rollers today and all went well except that the boost would only go to 17psi at 5800 rpm and held steady there up to 7000 rpms. This an A&A kit with secondary drive and billet impellor YSI on a 427 cu in motor with mast heads, custom cam, holley high rise intake and American Racing ZO6 racing headers...... it has a 10% over driven crank pulley and a 2.75 s/c pulley. I'm thinking I have a boost leak somewhere but I've not yet looked over everything. I do have a dual nozzle alky kit on there which isn't being used and was wondering if maybe at that boost level boost is leaking past the nozzles, they are just in one of the silicone couplers and pretty wobbly. I also have an unrestricted 4" intake tube with an air filter on the end so I don't know if that is maybe restrictive. Just looking for opinions and maybe it anyone else has had a similar situation. Thanks for any help.

My 05 only has about 35K miles on it and the harmonic balancer is still good. When installing a SC kit, are you guys replacing the balancer as a precautionary measure or leaving it alone if there is no wobble/play?

If replacing, what special tools are needed to get the job done? I have a long breaker bar and cheater pipe to get the bolt out. Does it take a puller to then remove the balancer or will it come off easily after the bolt is removed? What's the best way to keep the engine from rotating while removing or installing the bolt? I have an auto trans.

Thanks!

Def have to have a puller. There is a Chrysler one you can get on Amazon for $50 or so that works very well. Also need a tool to install the new balancer. It's a friction fit, not something you are going to get on otherwise.

Thanks for the reply. Ive been reading up on it. Is this Powerbond HB good to use if I plan to supercharge in the future? Stock engine so probably going to stay around 525-550 RWHP.

Powerbond part # PB1117SS

This the one I'm running, had it on for 50K miles or so, no issues. I don't have any personal experience with the Powerbond so I don't want to anything good or bad

I'm sure Josh does though, maybe he can chime in

The PB should be fine too.
Or these 2 are easy choices:
C2501 or TFS-19005

Thanks for the help on the HB, guys.

Im still on the fence about self-installing my A&A kit. The car is not my daily driver so I can take me time doing it and I am pretty mechanically inclined but this will definitely be my biggest undertaking to date. Im the type of guy that likes having vehicles in the garage to work on, so this may be fun for me....just a bit intimidating I guess at first!

I drove down from the Bay Area to A&A Corvette (Oxnard) and had them install/tune. They did and great job and the drive home was fun

Definitely replace the HB with other than oem, powerbond, ATI, etc.

I thought about that but that's 5.5 hours each way 4 times, twice with a 2nd car so I have a ride home and back. Plus, I do like to tinker and work on my own vehicles....I guess I just need to man up and go for it hahaha.

Just ordered replacement idlers from a&a and noticed the new ones are metal and the old ones are plastic. My old ones are .15 inches larger in diameter. Any concerns over running the new idlers impacting boost or belt length?
