    Thinking about 5% overdrive pulleys.....


    If any one has 5% overdrive pulleys for sale please let me know. Also how much difference is there between the 5% and the 10% pulleys.

    Fast Ed N: Does Ford carry 5% overdrive pulleys and if so how much ? Thanks.

    Re: Thinking about 5% overdrive pulleys.....


    When you say pulley(s), you mean pulley, because there is only one pulley that can be overdriven, and that is the blower pulley. You can buy an SVO (Ford) 5% pulley, or you can buy a Hypertech (the one I have) 10% pulley from Canadian Tire out of the Keystone catalogue.

    If you mean underdrive pulleys, those are a set of three pulleys that serve an entirely different purpose. Forgive me if you already know this....just trying to be helpful.

    Good Luck.

    Thanks Bill, I meant pulley, the one for the blower. How much did you pay for the Hypertech and can you tell me how much difference is there between the 5% and 10% in terms of performance. I would want the one that would be less stressful on my engine.

    Have you pushed your car since you got it running? How does it feel? Hope to see it soon.

    SC pulley


    Steve, Ford does not offer any SC pulleys through regular channels. The 5% SVO pulley has to be ordered through Super Coupe Performance, or one of the other U.S. companies that has a tie-in with Ford.

    cheers

    Steve:

    10% pulley was around $100 CAN, available right away.

    5% pulley = 0.5-1.0 lb more boost
    10% pulley = 1-2lb more boost

    (Depending on other mods)

    If you have stock exhaust, stick with the 5% at the most. If you can open up the exhaust, and you don't mind replacing an SC seal, then go with the 10%. You'll also get boost faster, so prepare to use more fuel.

    My car has not seen over 3500-4000 RPM, and only under light load. No more than 4lb boost so far, otherwise she runs great. I don't plan on flogging her until I switch to 15w40 and have exceeded 1000kms.

    Jamie: saw you motor today, looks good! We'll be in-touch.

    Fast Ed, Bill thanks for all your help. I think I will go with the 5% from SCP. Thanks again.

    Has NitrousPaul got anything to add here in regards to running a 10% pulley with stock exhaust??? He was tempting me with the idea. I've had that 10% pulley I bought off Wayne last Summer and I have yet to install it. Hell, my HG's blew without installing it! I've gotta get that exhaust system done.

    Cheers,

    Cool, $100 isn't too bad. I'll have to pick one up soon, I'll stick with the stock pulley for now. I have long tube headers and a true dual exhaust system and fully ported heads, intakes and such so I should be plenty fine witht he 10% pulley, I would really like to get the 10-rib pulley system though for the blower. Has anyone found out the price of the 10-rib 3 pulley system from Magnusen I think it was?

    It is manufactured only by ESM.

    It is $485.00 USD. It includes the modified jackshaft (core required), 10 rib SC belt ($70 seperately), choice of 10 rib pulley, wider steel idler assembly.

    Not too bad I guess. More like $300 and I'd buy one.

    Greg,

    No, it isn't here yet. I'm awiting on Purolator. Should be any day now. It has my 10% pulley already mounted to it.

    Did you ship your blower yet?

    Guys,

    Is it cheaper/easier to put custom exhaust on a car with the newer style gas tank? If I have to change my fuel pump soon anyway, I'm wondering if I shouldn't ask Sebastien how much he wants for the tank out of his car, and swap tanks and do exhaust at the same time. Might be a little expensive all at once, but if it makes things easier in the long run then maybe it's worth considering?!

    Does anyone know the manufacturer and part number for the 255lph forced induction fuel pumps?

    Thanks,
