when does the PW bbk come out?

Anyone know of anyone running a bigger pulley than the 11psi that comes with the kit. Or is there no bbk for the PW yet?

It would be a smaller pulley, not a bigger one. They made 10 I think, all of which are gone already. Not sure if they are going to make more or not.

You could also use a larger crank pulley and get more boost.

I wouldn't recommend the larger crank pulley.

If you want one, call the hotline and see if they have any left ... but I think the latest batch was all spoken for.

Check into what Massive is going to offer soon too.

Why?

You used one on your car when you raced it at Mid-Ohio didn't you? Were you not happy with it?

The PW pullies are pressed on.

Massive is developing a swapable pulley - bolt to a press-on hub.

I did use it, but I didn't like it. I didn't like the tight belt routing with the PW tensioner - kinda too tight between the crank and tensioner pullies. And I think the undampened pulley had something to do with the the bearing/bolt failure at sustained high RPM (long time down the straight).

Itís funny that you mention the tight tensioner to crank contact, Looking at the kit, I believe the tensioner pulley is 3.5 inches in diameter.

If you put the 5.7 crank pulley on you will be increasing the crank pulley diameter by Ĺ and inch, which will move ľ inch closer to the tensioner.

Now this will be a problem with belt wrap after the crank, as the tensioner under load will account for most of the load dampening due to vibration. If you use a smaller belt you will compound this problem.

The solution is to change the tensioner pulley. It needs to be 3 inches in diameter. By doing this you will increase the distance the tensioner clears the crank, plus you will have a lager surface area in contact with the belt.

IMO that if you when to NAPA and ask them to order the tensioner pulleys for the stock Zetec, youíll find what your looking for. You just what to make sure that itís the smooth pulley, as the tensioner pulley rides on the back side of the belt.

You need to make sure the tensioner/idler bearing has the proper backspacing to keep the belt in alignment ... not all pullies have identical bearing spacing (or sizes).

was there any numbers, as how much this bbk put down on these cars? Can i have a pulley machined custom, not happening right away, because havent even gotten the sc installed yet or even driven a FI car to see what i thought about the power, ive ridden in a ss cobalt SC and it was pretty nice, but this should be much better than that.
