- Remove your air pump and still have full belt contact with water pump
- Idler will have a CNC cut Aluminum pulley with a double row sealed bearing rated at 12000RPM

The brackets and the shaft are steel. The shaft can be adjusted forward and back for belt alignment with belt adjustment being the same as stock with the stock sized belt. Single turbo applications may use a smaller belt which will allow the idle to tuck closer to the motor.

Pricing will be based on interest.

Unless someone cuts the pulley for less than the prices I have ,the cost will be $ 200 with SS bolts .I am looking for a less expensive pulley before ordering them .

i really need this but haven't quite finished my new turbo manifold and will have to wait a couple of weeks to see if i will have the space.


p.s. i have a need for a couple of engine torque braces in the next couple of weeks and will be installing your oilpan brace on all my motors...

When you are ready I can send you one to try the fitment . You can shorten the adjusting arm I am sure. I do not supply the adjusting arm you must cut and drill your stock one .
