Ok. About to send the money for the blower.

Just need to know.

If you guys had to choose between a 3.8 and a 3.4" pulley, which would you choose?

Consider my set-up. Catless long tube headers, 2.5" exhaust, on an L99. Stock otherwise.

Yes, I can get a 3.6 but I would have to pay extra.

3.6 if you want to make 7 to 8 lbs of boost with headers. If no headers, then the 3.8 will make about the same boost.

You have headers don't you? I do. That's why I went with the 3.6" pulley. If you look at my dyno sheet, you can see the boost varied between 7 and 8 and my car made 500 rwhp. Still nice and safe for the engine internals, but oh so fun.

I remember you telling me to get a 3.6 and it is sound advice.

I just wonder if the 3.4 can work and maybe be nanied down a bit to be safe enough for my set-up. Reason is so I don't have to buy the 3.6

I want over 500 rwhp, don't really mind not getting up toward 550 rwhp, I'm not chasing power. Just would like to save some cash and not have to buy the 3.6 because a 3.4 or 3.8 will come with my kit.

The pulley choice is really based on your driving style/preference. 3.4 will push the envelope harder. You have to ask yourself what's cheaper - a pulley or burnt pistons? Not saying that you will burn a piston, just that you may wish to drive it with a 3.8 and stay safe until you get used to it. BTW - Is there a SPECIFIC reason why they will not let you order it with a 3.6 pulley instead of the 3.8 or 3.4? Or at least purchase it as a small upcharge versus a full price hit.
