I had 1 on my S trim... i went down to a custom size 2.5inch, it worked amazing with a green belt.

On all my datalogs my boost curve was smoother with less fluctuations as well.

Super worth the 200 bucks or whatever... especially if you're going to a size that's known to slip.

Did you send in your pulley or buy one from them?

I've had bad experience with them twice. At least customer service wise. I've tried ordering from them twice. Maybe they just don't want to make a tvs pulley....

Same experience here, gave up on trying to contact them. Sucks because I really want to have some pulleys done by them.

I ordered mine through Lethal. Took roughly 3 weeks to get to me since it was dropped shipped from them. Same size as you are looking for OP. Only issue is that they claim a week to make but either Covid or backed up with orders, it took longer. So as long as you aren't in a rush, just buy it through Lethal.

I bought mine from Lethal as well for my TVS. Still on the shelf with the blower.

I never seen lethal list any griptec pulleys for the tvs gen 1 blowers for the 03-04 cobras. I even messaged lethal about it. They were no help. Another vendor I don't do business with....

Ima order today, not in a big rush since my whipple is at Jon bonds getting rebuilt. Only reason I’m doing it is because the Reichard racing 3.00” pulley that came with the blower got bent on shipping and idk if I can trust it.

The other day I was looking at griptec pulleys at lethal and they list 2.65 pulleys different than 2.3's which they all run the same pulleys. A Cobra TVS pulley will fit gen 1-gen 3, now maybe the gen 3r is different but I doubt it.

Is this the one you are referring to? 69mm?

Yeah, I don’t use Lethal for anything because their prices are higher than everyone else’s and I have to pay a sales tax. This time around though, @LethalBlake helped me out with the price to get my business. Can’t really complain.

Griptec 2.65L TVS Supercharger Pulley

The 2.65 uses the same pulleys as the 2.3 so it should be 1/2 dozen or the other but I like that the 2.65 pulleys are measured in inches.
Geez why do they measure in inches for the 2.65 and not the 2.3? Heck, non of us cobra owners measure pulleys by mm. I don't know what I'd need.

I ordered mine directly from Z-industries. If you’re looking for a 2.6” the info below is from last year so price might be higher now, but this will fit your 2.3. I had some issues with them not answering emails so I ended up calling them directly. 951-303-6857
Don’t ask me how i like the pulley as I didn’t put it on yet. This summer I plan to finally make the switch to e-85, but looks wise the pulley is really nice.

Awesome so you actually ordered a 2.6 griptec. I may actually order one up and give it a try.

I appreciate the help.

Edit: per the part number you provided I found it. Might order one up! Do you have a picture of the pulley?

Does any know what PSI level this would put a 2.3 gen 2? I'm currently on a 2.8 and only seeing 16-17 PSI. Stock longblock with headers.
