GT 500 Pulley

JMS Chip and Performance has released a 2.40-inch steel supercharger pulley for the '13-'14 Shelby GT 500 with 5.8L SVT engine. A direct fit for the 5.8L TVS supercharger, the smaller diameter pulley adds an additional 2-3 pounds of boost, providing as much as 80 additional horsepower when matched with the required JMS custom tune that utilizes SCT X3 and SF3 Power Flash handheld programmers. The pulley is machined from high-strength steel alloy to match the OEM inside bore press-fit dimension and work with the factory belt tensioners. It will not compromise reliability.
