Underdrive pullies & Cold Air Induction
#1
I've been looking through the archives and am now confused!:chin: How about some feedback on underdrive pullies and cold air induction systems. For a currently stock daily driver, which will probably never be highly modified, are these worthwhile investments? I'm looking for a few tricks to wake the old girl up a bit (aren't we all?). Gears and exhaust are definitely in the planning stages. I had planned on a Mustang intake snorkel, K&N filter and airbox delete, but would the whole kit be better? Do the pullies really make much difference? Notes in the archives are mixed on this.
Thanks for your thoughts -

Personally. Subframe connectors, gears , Converter or 5 spd swap.

Then maybe Electric fan, exhaust, bump the timing a few degrees.

I personally think that the underdrives create more problems then they are worth with your stock charging system ( that isnt up to the task in stock form) unless you upgrade to a 3g alternator.

For handeling the Turbo Coupe front bar with the addco rear bar is a must. I have recently done this to my car , and I can say it has been the mod I have had the most fun with as far as drivability goes.

You can ramp it up and run bigger wheels, sn95 swap, then a coilover conversion.


Alll in all i think the handling mods are a fun starter one. Just make sure you get some subframes in there.

just do a crank pulley
makes the largest differene without harming the alt power making that much
65mm TB off a explorer makes a NICE difference in throttle response
then everything else mentioned.
