does this apply to the STS-V as well? I thought they were pressed on. Does this require shipping the blower to you?

Hello,
This does not apply to the STS-V application. For that we have the crank pulley & harmonic balancer option. We have 1.5-3PSI pullies if you are interested. Please note that the configuration for the STS-V and XLR-V are different.

Thank you,

I thought both V's shared the same motor and blower. I understand there are other differences but if the blower is the same, wouldn't they both have pressed on pulleys?

Not arguing just trying to understand the difference.

I have put the call out to my car supplier to find me a low miles Red XLR-V so understanding the differences now would greatly help me plan for future mods.

Hello,
They do share the same blower and engine. However the accessory drives are different between the two models. The XLR-V uses only 2 pulley tracks whereas the STS-V uses 3 pulley tracks with a dedicated supercharger drive.

The blower pulley's are both the same on each application. We don't advise changing out the upper pulley as you will decrease belt contact surface area increasing the likely hood of belt slip.

On the STS-V we use our harmonic balancer pulley design. This allows us to just spin the supercharger faster and keep everything else at the correct OEM speed. With the XLR-V we drive off a different location that basically does the same thing as the STS-V. The difference is that we only drive the supercharger, but we don't have to do it from the crank.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Thank you,
