where is the best place to get these installed if you cant/not sure to do yourself, these or the skunk2 header will be my next upgrade
I see that you are in Florida. I can not comment on your region, as we do not yet have any Authorized NST Retailers in your state. We are in Houston Texas, and at this time, I can only comment on our region. Hopefully someone from your area can chime in with a suggestion.

Good luck and have fun with all your projects!

Nice thread indeed. You just might get a sale out of me in the next week or two.

Any new colors coming?
Good question, I added this to the FAQ section...

7. What colors do you offer?
A. All NST Pulleys are HARD ANODIZED. This is the most durable method of anodizing in the industry, and very few brands are actually hard anodized. This process adds a hard layer to the outside of the aluminum and helps to make the pulley as durable as possible. We currently offer Red and Graphite Gray anodized pulleys.

No new colors are scheduled at this time.

I have ordered a set of NST pulleys for my Si, just waiting on them to come back into stock.

As a mechanic with roughly 14 years working on f/i motors, I use pulley kits on every build I have been involved in. I like the fact that NST uses only a slight under drive and then in turn compensates for the alternator. The kit looks high quality, and I am excited to install them.

Thank you sir!

We design our kits with the understanding that many of our customers use these kits on daily driven street cars. With this in mind, we design kits that will increase performance on the track and will work very very well on the street.

Be sure to report back in this thread after you install your kit, we would greatly appreciate it.

Hey Mike, any way there could be an updated DIY for the Si pulley install? The most detailed DIY on this site (with text and pictures) no longer has their pictures appearing - broken link. I think I have the install under control (gonna attempt soon!), but would be nice to have the added help. Thanks!

I have NST pulleys for about 3 months now. I havent had any issues with them,, so far quality and reliability is awesome. After the install, i noticed some positve changes.. car feels better at revving. It was my first time installing pulleys so i cleared a whole day and installed them There are 2 biggest challenges (as for me). Removing crank bolt and 3 alternator bolts. I had Craftsman 590lbs air gun and it didnt do anything at all. So... as many guys here recomended, i used breaker bar. I was really scared to do this but it worked as a charm. To remove 3 alternator bolts..all you need is a few tools and some patience. I am 100% satisfied with the product. If you arent too comfortable with the tools or not really mechanically skilled, i would recommend to find a friend to help you or take it to the shop. Its not like i am a mechanic or super good with a tools, but its just my suggestion. The good thing is, you dont have to worry about quality and built of these pulleys because its awesome. Plus, as you can see, NST representative is always here to help. Hope it helps a bit...
