In our ever continuing quest for HP, we were able to convince Whipple to supply us with a kit that would maximize the potential of the little 2.3 L SC on the mustang... I have spent that last three days swearing and installing the 10 rib pully kit

First I started with the tear down

That went pretty good until I ran into crank shaft pully....

After spending a few hours swearing and throwing temper tantrums like a two year old, l learned that the right tool makes all the difference

Came off like a knife through butter!

(Sorry I don't have a pic) I went to install the new bracket, un fortunately, it didn't fit.....

I was about to start the car on fire, but then I realized that I had two options, grind off the interfering part if the new whipple bracket, or get a smaller pully!

Notice the size difference between the two stock for pullies:

A quick trip to the pick n pull this am and I was on my way....

Saw this little gem while I was there:

The car is now at CCMR for tuning..,,

For info here is a photo showing the diff in pullies:
