supercharger pulley DIY

ok so I got my 675 horse kit from vmp today. Have an appointment with my local speed shop for august 17 to install puller, idler, cai, plugs and plug all the numbers for the tune. Me as I am would love to do the work myself. I don't have any experience in doing work on cars in fact ive only changed flat tires. Actually as far as electrical ive installed stereo systems remote starters and powerd door locks but that's it. My question is, is there another way I could remove the pulley without the actual tool? Yes I could order one but if I spend the money to do this once to me its not worth it. I could just put that money towards what the mechanic is gonna charge me to install everything. Its not about the money its more about having pride and doing it myself. plus I would love the challenge.

You won't need the tool to remove the pulley. If you look at the pulley on your car you will see 4 to 6 bolts. The pulley ilder is going to take a little work. It's worth it to have someone installed the pulley, pulley ilder, and plugs. I only paid three hundred for those things installed. I put on the CAI and tuned it. If you have the time it's not hard to install any of that stuff but most mechanics can do this stuff no problem where as it will takes someone with little engine experience a few hours.

The idler looks like there's only 1 boot and I don't have to remove anything to get to it so I don't c that being a big issue. I c the bolts ur talking about on the pulley likdude , are u saying that when I remove this it should come off?

if supercharger pulleys are held on by taperlock bushings (idk but think so) make sure to follow instructions. Taperlocks are easily damaged by improper install esp tightening sequence

Ok unfortunately by removing the 6 screws on the pulley is not gonna remove it. Looks like I'm gonna need the tool afterall. Anyways I got that ordered from vmp and should b here Monday, Tuesday the latest. In the meantime I managed to take the belt off the pulley. first i had to move the coolant reservoir to the side Just to get to the bolt that releases tension. Its hard to get good leverage and it really takes a toll on your hand from the ratchet. Anyways I got the belt off so I think that's a good start.

Lildude when u installed the CAI did your maf. Sensor connect on the opposite side of the jlt intake? The instructions didn't make sense to me on top of that the pics provided were so faded that u couldn't make out anything.

You are dead on. The directions have it being installed on the right side of the CAI. Mine only had room enough the fit on the left (side closest to engine). That threw me off also. It did not make a difference on my car. Mine works fine. Only time mine ever messed is when I had to keep changing out tunes. Whenever the factory tune was in the car it sputtered bad. That's to be expected though.

Yep. Just looked at mine to make sure and the small writing (looks like parts numbers or serial numbers) is facing down. Oh yeah don't be surprised if your devider does not line up perfect. That simple part about drive me nuts trying to line it up.

Lildude u were right. Removing the 6 bolts on the pulley will do the job. All I needed was a rubber mallet and give it a couple whacks. Bro I just took it for a spin and wow what a difference. The car woke up man. Has so much power. This is what the car should feel like. Im in love again!!!💔 hahaha
