    I have read so much about both of these pulleys. Billetflow 2.76 pulley w/ billetflow idlers, or Metco 2.90 pulley with billetflow idlers. I have read and watched so many videos. I want to get a final consensus on this one. My car is a street car, won't see any track duty, just busting people on the highway and at the traffic lights. Thats it. Please point me in the right direction. This is my daily drive too BTW.

    I got the Reichard 2.75" ultra grip pulley. I love the no slip design.

    I have Metco upper as well as Metco dual bearing idlers.
    I've had no problems with any of them, the RR is also a nice upper to consider as before mentioned. I will be putting a RR on my Whipple when the time comes.

    You can't really go wrong with either one. Both choices will get you the desired effect that you are after, and should also give you many miles of trouble free fun! :rockon:

    Trigger pulled, Ordered the Billetflow 2.76 pulley, idler (4) piece kit, diff brace and rented the pulley removal/ installer tool. Also installed new NGK plugs from SVTP....reccomendations and temp gapped them at 45 for now. Lastly NAPA had a 745 belt..................Wait for it............in stock with the military discount $44 bucks :). Very happy, everything will be shipping from Billetflow tomorrow for free too. A good day!!!!!!!!!!!

    Think your gap would be better at .035" or even smaller at .032".

    I agree with you completely. I just temp gapped them until the day I get tuned.
