    Hello All, thanks for the welcomes!
    Please feel free to tell me if I'm wrong... but the first thing I want to do to my 2005 R53 is change out the pulley on the supercharger. Really want to see how much a 15% diameter boost will do.

    Any comments suggestions would be appreciated, but my question - does anyone recommend a favorite brand, online shop to order from, etc. I hope I can find one that will rent me the specific tool as well.

    thanks!

    Minimania rents to tool and sells their own pulley. I like the Alta pulley, but I can't really say there is a huge difference between them all, for the average driver/modder. Unless you're really good with tools - I'd have a shop do it for you. Oh, and get cooler plugs :)

    Pulley and cold air intake should be your first and most satisfying mods and Way is the man to talk to at:

    Yes we rent the tool for free when you buy our Pulley, we have 15% and 17%. Also we are located in Atlanta so pretty close if you want us to even install it for you.
