UKGT500 Posted January 10, 2014 Report Share Posted January 10, 2014 At last I just installed a Stage 2 tune from Brenspeed today. I was amazed it took me all day mainly due to the stock pulley absolutely refusing to budge even with a long breaker bar and a well lubricated VMP puller. I heated the pulley with a blowtorch and that did the trick (carefully heated I might add, didn't even take the factory black paint off the pulley)... Anyway I have added: Metco 2.6" pulley and idler, JLT 123mm cold air intake, NGK TR6 plugs and a 91 Octane tune. I actually have a 2008+ later (lighter) crank pulley in its' box but haven't fitted it yet due to it being almost impossible to find the tools to install it with (m12 x 1.5 thread seems to almost not exist over here). Anyway I have ordered what I need to hopefully install the new pulley but my question is: can I stand on the gas before I put the new pulley on or is the 2007 pulley really a weak point? I'm not going drag racing anytime soon. Just want to see what it goes like on a dry open road (if we ever get one that is!) Just wondering how likely the 2007 one is to fail...? Thanks!
