We have replacement bolts available here on the website:
Three bolts came out... the other two are stripped!!!
Tried doing it yesterday using a socket wrench... could not do it. went out and bought an impact wrench...
Tried again today, results as stated above...
what's the size of the bolts? M10-1.5-xx??? I want to buy new bolts to install when I take out the two stripped ones...

What warranty. I personally think its a joke, theyll break more than theylll fix.
At least thats how it works over at Irvine BMW. VW should be no different. Even with my limited car knowledge, Id rather fix things/mod things on my own, than pay someone, or have the dealer work on it.
Job i do myself= takes me maybe 1.5 times longer, but i know itll be done right, with no shortcuts.
Dealer/Mechanic i dont have any experience with= sketchy./
I only have one guy i take my car to and thats for body work. Very trustworthy guy. Darrell @ OC Body and bumper in irvine Very trustworthy guy!
The lightweight pulley should not effect the AC at all, it is the exact same size as the stock pulley, just lighter in weight.
Unfortunately the Bentley does not list any torque specs, so the best answer I can give is tight. Snugging them up with a standard size 3/8 ratchet should put out more than enough torque to keep things in place.

i think you answered my question. with dual 380 viairs for my air ride, i dont think the smaller pulley would be the best for me car
Correct, if you are pushing the electrical system hard, I would stick with the standard lightweight pulley, not the underdrive.

Good question, im going to the Pocnos this weekend, I will try to keep track
I have had the underdrive pully installed for over 10000 miles. I commute about 150 miles every day, but haven't noticed a difference in milage. I'm also running 2 amps and a radar detector and have few issues doing that as well. So far, it's been a good product for me.

roll them dice!!!
Quote, originally posted by 08 VduB WaBBiT » everyone that's got the lightweight crank pulley post up your mpgs your getting with this mod.
I found that it didn't affect mileage, or at least not enough to register as significant.
The best thing about this mod is that the engine doesn't feel sluggish anymore, especially starting from a stop.
I had mine installed today (lightweight) and what I felt is a quicker rpm increase, like if the engine was working "faster".
You can see that when gears seem to go up faster (auto).

This pulley and the NLS short shifter are the best $200 you can spend on a 2.5. I think they should be everyone's 1st mod
