      did the underdrive pulley mess up your set up at all?

      We are working on getting exact torque specs for the bolts, unfortunately ETKA nor the Bentley has any information on the exact torque specs.
      As far as the install goes, it is fairly easy to gain access by removing the passenger wheel and splash guard, everything should be right there.

      i finally installed my underdrive a couple of weeks ago.... car seems to rev nicer... idles/drives normal.
      but made me realize i need an intake even more. car is def not breathing well enough to take full advantage of the tune & everything else
      torqued mine to 30 ft/lbs btw...
      i don't know why people are using clamps to hold crap down... all you have to do is put a socket wrench on the alternater pulley w/ a belt on and nothing moves.

      I removed and installed mine with an impact wrench with the torque set just below midway. If I had to guess and from experience, I would say 70 - 80 ft lbs.

      If it matters to anyone I ran ECS light weight pulleys on my 1.8T for like 70K miles withe a pile of other mods, and I literally beat the snot out of it daily and never had a single issue other than coil packs which is totally unrelated. And I've been running Neuspeed lightweight and underdrive pulleys on my VR for 100k again no issues. Nice to see an option for the 2.5, I'll have to ad that to my list in the near future.
      And this may sound a little nutty but in the past to break the crank bolt free I used a long breaker bar against the ground, unplugged the coilpack and just gave the engine a quick crank, just enough to get a rotation in and it broke it free nice and clean every time. Re-installation of said crank bolt with air gun was what I used and no issues.

      FAILED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      You guys really don't care about your warranty?

      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 [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] Very trustworthy guy!

      I want to get this pulley bad, is there a diy for it or is it pretty straight forward?

      I noticed a lil power difference and this odd sound around 4600 rpm that sounds like a high pitched growl or something.

    12. 02-07-2010 05:24 PM #112
      What's this sound you guys are getting off this mod?
      Is that normal?

    13. 02-07-2010 10:51 PM #113
      There shouldn't be any different sound with this...

      Will installing this make your AC not to blow out cold air like factory..I've Heard from someone with a NST pulley it doesn't blow as cold once installed cause it reduces the energy going into the AC?

      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.

      If you have more electronics that stock, I'd certainly go with the standard lightweight pulley instead of the underdrive lightweight. The standard lightweight pulley will not have any effect on the electronics.

      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.
