yeah, the breather. What is the extra piece you talked about?

With some, or all? mps kits you order, you get a replacement plastic breather plug to go in place of the OEM breather. I suppose just in case your OEM piece is junk. Got one with my Pulley Boys kit too. It really looks like it is just an interior plastic trim push-in fastener. I'd use the OEM breather if it is in good shape.


ok ya thats what i figured thanks

getting the old one off took some force although if you work on cars even a little bit like myself, its not a big deal. I was scared honestly that i'd snap that little stud or something but it was a pretty clean job actually. took 20 minutes and could be done quicker than that if you already know what you're doing

I'm thinking my 3.6 mps kit may go on next Thursday, along with the 180 t-stat, fuel filter, and 605 plugs if I have enough time. Or maybe I should just work on the 4" FWI instead. Wife will be out of town, and I may take the afternoon off work to play a bit. smile

I spoke too soon. I'll be too busy with our month-end work to take time off during the day. I need a clone. Seriously.

Did any of you guys move your washer fluid tank out of the way before removing the stock pulley? Looks like it might be a PITA if left there during removal. I couldn't find any comments about it with a search. Will be trying to get mine done this weekend.

there is enough room, unless the puller you have is huge. extra space to look and move never hurts, but be careful. when i removed my resov, the plastic lines under it cracked b/c they were old and brittle no

When INTENSE pulled mine, they didn't take anything off. I think they even left the engine cover on. Took maybe 15 mins tops.

I think so. The engine bay in the GTP is so cramped.

PostSubject: DId my pulley today :)   Sun Jun 03, 2007 12:22 am

Finally managed to get my 3.6 pulley swap done today. It went pretty smoothly, no significant problems. Only took about 4 turns of the nut for the stock pulley to pop loose. Couldn't really test it out today though, we had rain on and off all day long. I did go for a short drive though, just no WOT opportunities. I have to say it FELT good, but the truth will be seen next weekend when I take it to the Street Legal drags again. Will be trying to do my plugs and wires tomorrow, but the FWI will have to wait a while longer.

There were a couple of obvious complications right from the start though. There was no way this swap was going to happen without moving the washer fluid tank up and back out of the way. No need to pull any hoses off, just pull the 2 screws and one nut, and tied it back away from the area. Otherwise the 5/8 threaded rod won't fit. Then found the positive terminal box was also in the way of inserting one of the 4 long bolts into the 2 puller plates, and that is also easily moved a bit to make room.

All in all, simple and straightforward, but I took my time and made sure I didn't miss any important details on the ZZP inst sheet. BTW, I'm using a Pulley Boys mps.

Dave Im running a 3.4 pulley on my Riv. You will be quite pleased with the results my personal best with the stock pulley was around 14.7 - 14.8 and my best with the 3.4 is 14.4. It pulls really hard for the luxobarge that it is.

I will likely end up with a 3.4 also, but I'm starting with the 3.6 until I find time to build my FWI and port my front manifold. I have the parts, but not the time. dunno

What are you using to port the front manifold. I think I would mess it up if i tried to do it myself.

Congrats!

I'm getting mine in next weekend. I'm going with the 3.5" though.

Get it out when it stops raining and let us know how it feels!

I went back and forth before I decided to buy the 3.6 first instead of a 3.5. I have so little spare time to work on the Riv, and it's my DD, that I wanted to play it safe. Pretty sure once I have more supporting mods in place, the 3.4 will be on the way.

No rain today, maybe I can get it out for a run. But I'd like to take that time to do my plugs and wires instead.

I haven't picked up a grinder yet, still need to look into options there. I have a spare front, so if I messed it up, no huge loss. I'm not planning on going to any max lengths either, this will be mostly a clean up job. There's a ridiculous amount of material blocking the openings on these front manifolds. scratch

PostSubject: Help removing a S/C pulley   Fri Oct 05, 2007 7:48 pm

I could use some advice in removing the s/c pulley.
I purchased an intense modular pulley system and am in the process of installing it.
I have the removal tool set up according to instructions.
I am really wrenching hard to get the old pulley off and I now notice I have bent the pulley's innermost groove.
The tool is straight but I'm now worried about going any further. I don't want to force it off at an angle.
I can't believe the amount of force Ive already applied to the thing and the pulley wont budge.
Help please. thanks in advance

I don't have one yet. Still trying to decide which one to get.
I'm running autolite 605s, 180* Tstat, magnaflows. gutted box with K&N.

This is one of the reasons I just went with a 3.6" pulley.
After I scan I will go smaller. Id like a DHP power tuner but its a little more than the budget can afford atm.

After the test drive I immediately feel the difference. I had lost some low end and some boost when I opened up the exhaust. Now it feels right. Id really like to know if I'm getting some KR though.
