Thanks, blk04cobra1

I like the look of those too, they look a little more aggressive :D Where could I find some of those? I love that whine. Great car you got there :thumbsup:

:thumbsup: :hail: :fordflag: :whipit: :tongue: :djsmile: That is way out awesome! Do the cogs come with a flight manual? That Cobra definately states "don't tread on me". How long did it take to install? Did you have to cut an new key way in the crank? Now that is something I have to have! :eek:

I kept everything else the same, no new key in the crank...i think some are just really paranoid...install is the same as any other pulley combo, it included all the pulley's...thanks for the compliments :thumbsup:

First let me say HOLY !@#$ that thing sounds good. I love to hear the whine. It reminds me of the old school blowers. I was actually suprised how quite the stock setup is.

And now for the some stupid questions...

1) The extra whine is from the COGed belt? Why is that?

2) Since the belt is COGed it should never slip. Why would you need the extra idler pullies around the blower pully? I thought that this was done when changing to a smaller upper pulley to create more surface area and hence less slipping with a flat belt.

3) Is the tension the same as the stock setup? Being the money pinching mo-fo I am, I can't help but worry about the bearings in the blower going south because of extra pressure placed on them.

4) Can you choose any size upper pulley with this setup?

5) Are you going to Myrtle Beach for Ford week so I can see this beast in person?

I guess that would be enough questions for now. LOL

And now for the some stupid questions...

1) The extra whine is from the COGed belt? Why is that?
yes...extra air is allowed through the pulley system, hence the "extra" whine (at least that's what I was told)

2) Since the belt is COGed it should never slip. Why would you need the extra idler pullies around the blower pully? I thought that this was done when changing to a smaller upper pulley to create more surface area and hence less slipping with a flat belt.
the extra pullies help just like the non-slip style...more boost with different uppers and lowers...and yes, theoretically it should never slip and the dyno sheet showed no slack in boost all through the powerband

3) Is the tension the same as the stock setup? Being the money pinching mo-fo I am, I can't help but worry about the bearings in the blower going south because of extra pressure placed on them.
im not sure, the tension was very tight, but overspinning the blower could happen due to high boost levels...i was seeing 17lbs consistently...mine isnt a daily driver, so im not too worried about those...and I have an extra blower sitting around right now just in case ;)
4) Can you choose any size upper pulley with this setup?
It came with a 2.8 and that's all that's available right now, visit www.rpmoutlet.com (http://www.rpmoutlet.com) to check on availability of new uppers

5) Are you going to Myrtle Beach for Ford week so I can see this beast in person?
I will be at Mustangweek this summer, but will most likely not have this setup on the car...hopefully by then it will have 800rwhp :bounce:

I guess that would be enough questions for now. LOLIf you have any other questions, let me know, it's definitely worth the price, if nothing just for the sound, but you get the added, no slip issues

I have watched that video too many times now! :D I even downloaded the video from the RPMoutlet too. I assume that you flashed the ECU with the predator. Do you think that the Predator is sufficient or are you planning on dyno tuning (if you did I must have missed that)?

I am not sure if I am ready to jump to 17psi yet. My 04 has very low miles on it now and still need to break it in before modding.

Mine had 1300 miles on when I started with the pulley/chip/tune...it had 850miles on it when I put the catback on...it now has 1800 on it and I couldnt have been happier...a friend of mine tuned it with the diablo on the dyno...it put down 450/495 w/out xpipe and tb/plenum...I guessing 480/515 w/tb and xpipe...hope to get it on the dyno this weekend to find out :bounce:
