So i've been running stock Stillen setup and decided to do the 9lb pulley upgrade + GT-R spark plugs and a custom tune and I'm pretty satisfied with the results and thought I'd share!

Air temp was 81.

Um I HOPE you have other mods to the SC, like a front mount intercooler( Topgunz kit), and tune with the speed density :/ or very least the Frozenboost heat exchanger and upgrade pump, If you still tuning of the MAF's Um don't drive hard, that number is right where my car blew up after 3 days,

Im surprised the people at AAM didn't go over this with him. He gonna learn today!. I'd be suprised if the car last 6 months if he didn't go over the other issue stated above.

To answer this comment, NO! AAM did not even bring this up which was really surprising(They weren't even aware I had the other components to be installed at the time). However, after dealing with them on another issue that they mucked up over a simple camber adjustment, I'm no longer as surprised and doubt their competency as a tuner shop..

In regards to the other comments, yes I'll be installing my Frozenboost heat exchange and 34 row oil cooler probably next weekend and 'll be running Mocool of course as well.

The car won't ever see a track, nor will it incur more than the occasional back road spirited drive or occasional whooping of some kit in a wanna be tuner. Other than that, it's just an occasional weekend car that sees a couple hundred miles a month for about 9 months out of the year. It's a 2014 with 8200miles on it. I'm pretty confident that this setup combined with my driving pattern and occasional use will be fine for what I want it to do.

Either switch to a setup that has the maf after the intercooler, or make sure you have a shortblock fund in reserve.

Wow super low milage. Hope for the best. I seen and heard alot of horror stories with that kit when you upgrade the pulley. A guy i met at sebring did this and blew the blower a couple times. Good luck with that car

What about my setup and limited street driving leads you to believe there's still an eminent failure?
Stock blocks are running much higher boost and WHP on other kits and get driven much harder and more frequently.
What specific issue do you believe this will cause?

Because the Stillen kit has the maf pre-compressor and intercooler. It's why they pop far more often than other kits running higher boost. The intercooler is a joke, and the ecu has no way of knowing the intake temp. IATs are through the roof with the Stillen kit, and the ECU doesn't know it. It adds fuel for a lower intake temp charge, not what it actually receives.There's a TON of discussion on it if you look. And that's on the stock pulley. You are even more at risk since you raised the boost.
