    5 Top Rated Questions

    What size belt would be needed or what size idler pulley to make up for the slack.? (Everything stock)

    • When running a 2.81" pulley you will need a shorter serpentine belt to keep tight on your blower for maximum boost. The stock belt size is roughly 75.5". You will need 73.5 " belt.

    do i absolutely need a tuner? I want to put this pulley on, but all the tuner options are pretty expensive, how important is a tuner for this? Can I put this pulley on with just the shorter serp belt?

    • NO, you have to get a tune - the added boost will likely not be compensated for by the stock computer. The pulley is the least expensive part of the whole job of upping boost. You would need a tuner and possibly a fuel system upgrade. Don't skimp - you could end up needing a whole engine if it detonates and burns pistons or throws a rod out the side of the block!

    What hardware will I need to install it other than the special tool and where can I find the hardware

    • You will need to get a new tune with a smaller belt along with the pulley tool. Everything else would just be basic hand tools.

    If I just get the pulley, belt, and tuner will i need anything else with that? Im seeing other aftermarket pulleys in these pics.

    • This Steeda Supercharger Pulley will require a different length belt and would indeed require a new tune. Depending on your exact application and its needs, you may need upgraded fueling components as well.

    What other mods will I need in order for this pulley to work? I know I will need a shorter belt, and I have a tuner already.

    • The Steeda Supercharger Pulley will only need the belt and a custom tune to operate properly.

      Great Buy

      Good way to get a little bump in power for less $$. Pair it with a tune and you'll notice a difference immediately. 13/10 would recommend. Took about 2 hours due to the fact it was my first time swapping a pulley. Buy the puller, it will make a world of difference.

      It’s a new car...

      Pulley does it’s job. Spins the blower faster makes a lot of power. I bought the Bama tuner, 74.5” belt and the puller. Do yourself a favor, buy the puller and follow the instructions. I turned a 2hr job into a 4hr one. Car makes serious power. I also installed new lower temp Iridium plugs. Breaks tires in 3rd even on low RPM stomp. Gave it high perf gain because it’s noticeably different. Like a new car altogether. 2004 Mystichrome 44k miles

      Paired with a JLT ram air intake, bassani o/r x-pipe, Borla stingers, and a custom dyno tune I made 472 rwhp and 521 ft lbs torque! Awesome numbers for pulley only! Great improvement over stock!

      This is definitely the best bang for your buck power gainer out there for the 03-04 cobras. I put this bad boy on in a matter of minutes and gained a ton of power! I can no longer hook in first or second, and instead of throwing me back in ny seat I'm planted back there through every gear all the way to 7k. Very impressed with the quality, and the army color green it came in is pretty cool. I would recommended this to anyone with a cobra. 12-13lbs of boost after install. Super addicting so see that guage shoot your there. Would recommend getting the pulley puller/install tool to make it easier.

      A great upgrade for an 03 Cobra

      We were looking for a pretty simple upgrade to boost overall performance and this really did it. Some of the other items we have done are: A quadrant, clutch cable and adjuster.. cold air intake.. MGW shifter (it replaced the Steeda shifter that was OK, but we really like the MGW more).. OEM exhaust with FlowMaster Super 44 mufflers. Our local shop was able to pull and install the new pulley without the $180 tool. This upgrade along with the BAMA tune (we used an SCT tuner) made the car so much fun to drive all over again. It spools up way faster with more boost. I'd have to say that this is a 'must have' upgrade combined with a proper tune. Now to go order some new rear tires.. because I don't think this set will last long. What a blast.

      2.81 upper pulley

      This has been the best bang for the buck item I've put on my car. Using the Steeda pulley puller I had no problems removing the factory pulley and installing the 2.81. I used an Intune tuner to tune for the pulley, JLT CAI, and 93 octane. It builds boost quicker now and feels like a different car.

      a must for cobra owners

      Simple install with the correct tool. Amazing power gains when tuned. Put down 455/459 on the dyno with this pulley and an off-road x pipe. A must for cobra owners, it's like driving a whole new beast!

      The best and easiest mod for your Cobra

      This pulley is the best bang for your buck if you want more horses from your Cobra. There is almost no difference to the smallest pulley in the market (2.76") in gain. You need a special tool to take the stock pulley off, you cannot find this tool in your local parts store, you can rent it online or take it to a shop which specializes in this kind of mods (renting the tool is cheaper). I recommend getting a blower tensioner with a 100mm idler to minimize slippage of the belt. You need a custom tune to use this pulley, with AM Bama tune the tensioner and other minimal mods my car is another kind of monster. A big gain for the money spent.

      More boost!!!

      The easiest and fastest way to get more boost from your stock supercharger is a smaller pulley. I got almost 60hp with this pulley (must be tuned).

      LOVE it. YOU MUST HAVE THE $180 TOOL TO INSTALL THIS. 450hp to the wheels now makes this an easy decision.
