Battern Underdrive pullies

Hi all.

I am in the market for a set of Battern Underdrive pullies (a chrissy present from the girlfriend beleive it or not), and i was wondering if i will have any problems with clearence of the pullies with my SS inductions snorkle. There is not much room as it is, and i was wondering if the increase in size of the pullies would cause clearence problems......

Cheers, guys........

Re: Battern Underdrive pullies

The Batterns pulley kit is only one pulley and a belt. It won't cause any problems with clearance.

If you are interested, mine might be up for sale in a few weeks time.

Re: Battern Underdrive pullies

Not only is it a single pulley kit, it is actually a smaller pulley as it is on the driving shaft (crank).

One thing... when you install the pulley, tell me whether you notice a change in exhaust note or not.

Re: Battern Underdrive pullies

Ok then thanks heaps for that. I thought it was the pullies on the asessories that were bigger, but if it is the one on the crank that is smaller, then its all good.

Thanks heaps for your help guys.

I will let you know about the note too.

P.S are you guys happy with yours???

Re: Battern Underdrive pullies

Here is a current price list for the Batten Products. I must say that they were very professional, and i got a very quick response from them, which was great.

Stage 1 is a 2 piece kit that includes a new crank pulley and a new lenght belt to suit, It retails for $165 for the pulley and $67.00 for the belt. Recommended for street use, yeilds about 5-6kW's at the rears.

Stage 2 is a 2 piece kit that includes a new crank pulley and water pump pulley, it retains the stock lenght belt. This kit retails for $245.00. Recommended for maximum street performance, yeilds about 6-8 kW's at the rears.

Stage 3 is a 3 piece lit that includes a new crank pulley, water pump pulley and alternator pulley. This kit retains stock belt lenght. Recommended for performance street and stip use, yeilds about 8-11 kW's at the rears.

Which kits do people have. I am not sure which one to get???

I've got the "stage 1" on mine but I cant tell if mine's changed the exhaust note. I've got to be honest too in saying that I dont really know if its made any difference at all, maybe because it dosen't feel different as I've got a lower ratio diff(3.27:1). Does that make any sense??

Re: Battern Underdrive pullies

hi banacus, i found that power wise there was a small gain, but the cars engine revs so much quicker, you can diffently feel it.
