I agree with what alloy snake said. I am not speaking from experience but most of the reviews/comments I have come across have been strongly in favor of JLT CAI and VMP pulleys.

A few members here have gone with the metco pulley/puller and have run into problems.

I would get an idler to take up belt slack so you dont get slippage.

Another benefit of the VMP pulley is you can get the "stock look" pulley which will help prevent warranty issues when you take your car in for service (I think).

check some of the other threads on the forums....they have tons of responses to questions just like yours.

good luck and keep us posted on your decision!

Sorry Im not familiar with VMP
After a google search I think this is it - http://www.vmptuning.com/store/index.php?

Ah there is the puller I found last month but couldnt locate when I was ready to buy. Grabbing the pulley by the ribs is much better then from behind.

I dont have to worry about warrenty as its "covered" ;)

Looking for a good pulley with a bling factor.

I thought that the pullerinstaller will only work with the VMP 2.6 pulley only and not the Metco?
This puller is different from most on the market, it grabs the pulley by the ribs, and leaves no marks. It also works with Lightnings*, Roushcharged F150*, Roushcharged Mustang (09+ M90 with press fit pulley or P51 TVS).

Also includes tool/bolt to press on your aftermarket pulley.

Will remove and install factory press-fit pulley while supercharger is still installed on the car.
*Accommodates 2.6" to 3" pulleys, includes GT500 and Roush Mustang, other vehicles should be measured.

So is the Metco SC pulley the only one available for the GT500s?

Thats a good package but I dont really want the "stealth" look.
Does anybody else make a GT500 SC pulley?

Then step up!!! Get the VMP adjustable front snout assy that will go down to a 2.2-Its an interchangebable system.If thats too much a Metco 2.6 looks pretty cool.Do you really want to see the license plate of the guy running next to ya?We are all different-I prefer zing to bling!

Would not recommend Metco upper pulley. Grabber had problems w/two of them and it turned out that they were not machined properly from Metco.

Result was a couple of broken pullers and still not getting the Metco 2.6 pulley on.

Recommend search for Metco pulley and/or Grabber.

Best bet is to call and talk to Justin-He can get you fixed up and may bring some things to light you may not even know about.He has a GT-500 and a Dyno so he has the experiance.There alot of positive post for VMP.That would be a great place to start.

I will post a review once I get it on.
