You may want to check with Billetflow directly. They sell the complete setup and it may be cheaper. www.Billetflow.com (http://www.Billetflow.com). And yes I would advise the snub idler to reduce belt slip and the other idlers are important because the stock ones have been known to grenade.

yes you must absolutly must have an aux-idler with any other pulley smaller than the OEM 3.5 or it will slip, and the smaller you go the more it will slip, in fact it will slip with an Aux-idler but reduced, If i were you and just now looking to put an SC pulley on, instead you may want to do
a Lower 6 Lbs and leave the 3.5 alone, thats the best set up to avoid belt slip, and I do not think with a lower that you need an Aux-idler, but you do have to change the Altenator pulley for sure, but the lowers a much better way to go. and what ever you do, stay away from Motoblue pulleys, Billetflows the way to go, :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

I got a 6lb lower and alternator and I have zero slip. Now looking back I really like the billet flow setup more for the looks, but if you go with a lower, find someone that really knows what there doing. Im torn with what to tell you what to get but if you go upeers and ilders billet flow is the best. but the main thing is before you buy call billet flow and ask them what the best thing is to do for a pulley set up.

I would recommend using the original patented Reichard Racing pulley .it has an ultra gripping surfaceand you will get ALL the benefits of the patent not only part of it...the Metco idlers pulleys are hardcoated and will not scratch or fade.

these are the only products we use when we do these installs for our 03/04 customers..after you have been doing these cars exclusively for 4 years you see what products hold up and which ones dont.

Don't know if you have done this or not but with that 2.76 make sure to upgrade your heat exchanger. Spinning a "Heaton" blower that fast is gonna build alot of heat. You'll like you're new power, it's gonna feel like a whole different car.

good choice..did you see the ones we swapped out at the track Saturday? they were so bad that the belt was glazed from the aluminum and the ribs of the belt were wearing grooves in the surface of the pulley.

I did see those, I'm sure after I upgrade, I'd be able to sell the Orange Billet flow ones to someone that has the Comp Orange Cobra. Since they aren't in production anymore and in good shape still ;)

people need to know the pros and cons of a product before they buy it so they can make an informed decision

On my 03 vert, I had the RR upper pulley and the Metco Aux. idler for belt slip and the Metco 3 piece idler pulley set. The Metco pulleys also look great when installed! That will be one of my first mods on the 03 :bounce: cobra I just bought!
