For all you svo blown cars who are intrested in the pulleys...

It will be die-cast from steel not machined,making it stronger and more resistent to bending\flexing.

also we are studying which setup will be better(2 spoke,3 spoke,4 spoke) to lighten up the pulley thus reducing parasitic drag and less slip and more power.

the problem is i need more buyers.

if there is anything good you could think of for a better pulley post it here.

I will be asking for the shipping costs from turkey to U.S.A. soon.

hey i would be a good salesman

Ding, ding, ding... I'm curious how a die cast piece would work. Any idea what the difference in weight would be from a machined part? Would there be any potential problems getting it balanced rotationally?

I'm interested in the possibility, but I guess I'm just a bit cautious about how well it will work.

well the one on my car currently is machined,this weekend i will try to make a prototype and see the diffrence.

balance?all the pulleys wil be balanced.

since i started on this pulley thing I started thinking about making lower,upper control arms and a k-member.

what is the the real diffrence between a the oem lower control arm and the performance ones?I know the bushings for sure but what else?

also if you guys plan on grouping for a diffrent item ,post here to so if i could make it for cheap.

by the way the price+shipping of the 1st pulley will be hopefully determined this weekend.

I looked around a while for one before finally calling ASP. They said no problem, and cut me a 3.4" that arrived last week. Haven't put it in yet but as typical for ASP it looks to be a quality piece. I'll know more later this week when I install it. For $80.00 I didn't bat an eye.

good luck,
Marty

Purple,
I can't see a cast iron/steel pulley being lighter than a billet aluminium pulley of the same size. The price may should be cheaper being made in Turkey though and that might be attractive to some.

I hope it works out for you, Dwayne

96sled: I can't wait to hear what you say about the difference between the stock pulley and the 3.4" Seems like everyone that runs the 3.4 inch went straight to it and never ran the 6 pound pulley. I am very curious to see if it is very noticeable. It's alot cheaper than doing heads to get the same amount of power, lol

I ran the 6# for about 3 months then switched to the 9# and the diff is really noticable. The next thing is P&P in some 98 heads with 2k cams and I will be done then till something lets go.

Purple did you ever get your smoke/steam issue worked out??

I don't understand how a cast piece would be stronger than something machined. Something cast is more likely to fail from fatigue. Cast may be cheaper but that's because it isn't stronger.
Machined from billet is best.
