Yep will do. I replaced them recently but noticed some noiseyness on the 2 idler pulleys. I have the steel pulleys on there do you think the plastic ones are equally as durable? I already put my sc snout with the 3.4 pulley on there and ported the sc outlet to the triangle shape

If the bearing is good it doesn't matter. The metal ones will dissipate a tiny bit of the extra heat from a sub-par bearing but bottom line is the bearing is what matters.

Yea, I have had plastic pulleys disintegrate on me and I'm kinda paranoid now. But project engine and subframe replacement is coming along. I also started replacing everything that needed repair. Trans pulleys, vc gasket, intake manifold gasket, window weld the mounts, sts sway bar

The supercharger before I painted it

I love the look of these L67's on an engine stand. Just in general, they look good.

Great work! The color you painted the blower is the same color we did my dad's valve covers on his Regal GS.

Sure does look good, I was happy with the results of the paint. I'm bolting the subframe down getting ready to install the engine and trans. Just need to get 1 of these exhaust manifold bolts

The 96 Engine comes with a different flange on the exhaust manifold that uses these studs
