Bob, don't delay scanning for KR. I'm also running a 3.6, and with the mods in my sig, still have KR issues to work out.

I really like my LS1M, but they are out of production at this time. I think Autotap is one that is popular also. I'm not familiar with it, or any others. You do see an LS1M up for sale now and then on various boards, like ClubGP or 3800pro.com, maybe regalgs.org.

I haven't decided if I will keep or sell mine, once I have my PowrTuner up and running. It's simpler/easier to use in the car instead of a laptop, but has fewer features for scanning.

Be sure to route the belt on the inner grooves with INTENSE MPS if you aren't already. Here's some more info:

I e-mailed Intense and I told them that I was coming down next week, and they said they could do the install for free, but I think he might have forgot that I have a Riviera. What the hell difference would it make?

No real diff, in fact I think the Riv is easier, less stuff crowding the area than the W body cars.

I dunno. They already are very experienced with the pulley tool, so I think they wouldn't mind because it would boost their business. Heck, if it saves me $30 for the rental, that's why I'm going with them.

This is bad news.

They don't have a mechanic right now, Todd tells me.

Boo.

Oh well. There goes that pipe dream.

Yes, Tim King quit recently. Ed Morad has done a few, and he's in your area. I'd give him a call.

I didn't know that King was their mechanic. I heard about his heath problems, that's a shame.

So, I don't really want to do this pulley install myself, and Mr. Morad is only about 45 mins away, so looks like I'll go with him. I'm more comfortable doing a job like the front manifold... I have this fear of messing up my pulley.

Ya know, I just realized... I don't really drive my Riviera hard like I did my Regal. I mean, I still enjoy the acceleration on the freeway and whatnot, and once in a while I'll take it up to 100 (which feels better in the Riv than in my worn-struts Regal).

I think I'm going to get my FWI and pulley first, then when I can afford the Plog, I'll get it. And until then, I won't go WOT.

Come to think of it, I think I've only gone WOT with this Riviera maybe once, and it was because some asshole lady was literally 3 feet from my bumper going 70. Then she tried to pass me, and I slammed it. Hah, man was she pissed. Got a lil' taste o' the Riv, though.

Pulley install is not really all that hard. took me two hours and i didnt really follow instructions so thats probably why it took me that long. And I'm one of those people who messes up everything possible before i fix the problem.

I go WOT in the riv less than i did in my last car. The riv is enjoyable to drive without using all its power. I think , and that lends itself to why... However i still go WOT as often as i see fit.

Yes, not the best thing to do, but glad it worked.
There are several members on here that own there own pulley installer/ puller made from one or another manufacturer.
Who's pulley do you currently have on your car.?
Do you know the manufacturer, is it ZZP, Intense, Pulley Boys, Smooth Flow, etc.

Use a power steering pulley installer from OTC, the threads are identical to the ones in the snout.

Can you remove the stock pulley and install another press-on pulley with the supercharger still on the car?

yeppers! No S/C removal required. It's actually easy if you have the right tools.

It depends on the year of the engine.
1995 - NO, you have to remove the SC
96-99 - Yes
