PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The NST Lite series is a designation used for pulleys that are light-weight versions of their OEM counterparts. All NST pulleys are built using High quality 6061-T6 aircraft aluminum and are easily 60% to 70% lighter than steel or cast iron OEM pulleys.

The NST Lite series is designed for owners looking to reduce weight and increase the throttle response of their engines. These OEM-diameter pulleys will neither underdrive nor overdrive the associated accessories, yet lead to great throttle response and improved horsepower numbers in many applications.

The NST CR-Lite Pulley KIT is compatible with naturally aspirated, turbocharged, or supercharged applications, and is compatible with the OEM belt. No belt change is required when this crank pulley is used.

This KIT includes ALL seven pulleys available for the FRS and BRZ. Crank, Alternator, Water Pump, Idlers, and Tensioner. This is theONLY full KIT available for this engine at this time. Only the highest quality, high rpm, Japanese bearings are used in the NST kit and idler/tensioner pulleys include snap rings for easy service in the future.

Each NST Scion FRS / Subaru BRZ Pulley is carefully crafted from 6061-T6 aircraft aluminum, tested and balanced to high tolerances. Every NST pulley is hard anodized for exceptional durability and is a great item for use at the track or on the street.

Standard Color: Red. Please email us for info on custom colors.

Do Lightweight Aluminum Pulleys FREE Horsepower?

NonStopTuning Toyota JZ Pulleys & Cam Gears

NonStopTuning Toyota JZ Pulleys & Cam Gears

We’ve all heard it before, “Do lightweight aluminum pulleys free horsepower? Do they make your car faster?  Are they really worth it?” At NonStopTuning we’ve been designing and testing pulley kits of various types for the past decade, and have posted our results on various outlets.  We’ve decided to consolidate these results into one post, with several links, for your review.

Why are NST pulleys a popular choice for many of our customers?

Crank pulleys, attached to the outside of the crankshaft, are the source of power for a car’s accessories. The alternator, power steering, water pump, and air conditioner are all belt driven units, attached to the crank pulley, that use horsepower from an engine to provide their own services. Underdrive pulley systems increase an engine’s horsepower by reducing the power required to drive the external engine accessories. By replacing factory pulleys with carefully resized units, the accessories are slowed enough so that their performance does not suffer, but just enough so that more horsepower is sent to the wheels and put to the ground. Where horsepower should be.

Normally, underdrive pulleys like the units found at NonStopTuning will increase engine output by 10 to 12 horsepower, with even better power levels yielded from turbo models than seen in naturally aspirated engines. This increase results in quarter-mile time and road course lap improvements, easily making this modification one of the best “bang for your buck” modifications for any sport compact car.

Another great benefit in replacing factory pulleys with NST units is reduced weight. Factory units, also referred to as OEM, are generally constructed from steel or cast iron. Pulley systems like those found at NST are constructed of aircraft quality aluminum, making them extremely durable while at the same time much lighter than their steel counterparts. This weight reduction (aproximately 70%) results in less rotating mass on the engine’s crankshaft which drastically increases the engine’s ability to rev to speed faster.

Better throttle response, better horsepower and torque delivery, and better fuel economy can all be had when using NST pulleys.

DYNO TESTING AND LINKS TO DATA:

All dyno testing performed by third party installers and dyno operators.  Baselines and pulley dynos all performed on the same dyno, on the same day, with no other modifications.  All test cars were “bone stock” models.

Conclusion?  In a nutshell, YES, lightweight aluminum pulleys do free power and torque.

The dyno charts consistently prove that lightweight pulleys improve power, torque, and response across the entire power band. If you look at the area under the power and torque curves you will notice positive gains in the low, mid, and high range when an NST Pulley Kit is used. No other modification in the same price range can offer similar gains across the entire power band.

NST 10th Anniversary through Strange eyes!

NST 10th Anniversary

NST 10th Anniversary

NonStopTuning hit double digits in 2015, we’re finally TEN!  Things have definitely come a long way in a decade, the landscape of enthusiasts and motor sports has certainly changed, especially the young sport of drifting that we’ve grown up with, from infancy to its ever evolving current status as a professional sport.

Media, photography, and video has certainly changed during this decade as well.  Leaps and bounds have been made in this industry since the introduction of social media, handheld video cameras, and smart devices.  Take any of these items back just a decade and the masses would have called you “strange.”  But strange is good, especially when it has rhythm.  That’s what this post is about; the NST 10th Anniversary event as seen through the eyes of a young photographer and car enthusiast, well versed in the art of photography, social media, and blogging.

Check out his recap and photo gallery (over 400 pics) here: STRANGE RHYTHMS BLOG

You will not be disappointed!

NonStopTuning Infiniti G35 (Nissan 350Z) Pulley Kit Dyno Testing

NST G35

At the time of its debut, the Infiniti G35’s refined styling and sporty performance made a loud statement.  Among other items, the G35 shared its VQ35DE engine with the 350Z, and was a legitimate performer on the street and track.  We recently had the opportunity to test the NonStopTuning Underdrive Pulley Kit on one of these cars and were pretty impressed by the results.  Jessica’s G35 came to us as a completely stock car and provided us with a perfect blank canvas for testing.

All before and after dynos were performed on the Carboy Racing Dynojet in Houston, Texas. Before and after dynos were performed on the same day, with pulley install in between, with NO other modifications of any kind. Dyno graphs and max values are listed, temps and humidity are also listed. All photos were taken during this testing session.

Using a car with NO other performance modifications gives us a blank canvas and makes it abundantly clear that the gains we see are associated with the NST Pulley Kit.  Our test car did better in terms of horsepower, torque, and response, as indicated by the upward shift in both the HP and TQ curves.   Better horsepower and torque delivery is clearly visible in the low, mid, and high range of the power band.

Max horsepower went from 227 to 232, with a very nice shift in the mid range, posting consistent 10+ horsepower gains in the middle of the powerband.  Max torque was more impressive with an increase from 220 to 232, delivering these gains pretty consistently across the entire power band.

Conclusion?  NST Pulleys improve power, torque, and response across the entire power band. If you look at the area under the power and torque curves you will notice positive gains in the low, mid, and high range when the NST Pulley Kit is used. No other modification in the same price range can offer similar gains across the entire power band. This fact makes the NST Pulley Kit one of the best bang per buck performance modifications for the Infiniti G35 and Nissan 350Z.

We had an opportunity to dyno test a NonStopTuning CR-Lite Crank Pulley with a naturally aspirated Hyundai Veloster NAV a couple weeks ago, and were very happy with the results.  Click here for that post.

After the positive testing with the NAV, we were excited to test with a Veloster Turbo and had the chance to do so with Jay’s white Veloster.  Much like the last Veloster we tested with, this one came to us as a bone-stock, un-modified, car… it even happened to be another white car, nicknamed 002!

Our test car did better in terms of horsepower, torque, and response.  The Turbo car seems to spool faster with the weight reduction provided by the NST CR-Lite Crank Pulley and benefits from better horsepower and torque at the low, mid, and high range of the power band.

All before and after dynos were performed in fourth gear, using the same dyno on the same day, and NO other performance modifications were made.

NonStopTuning recently had the opportunity to develop and dyno test a lightweight crank pulley for the Hyundai Veloster.  Our friend Alex’s peppy 1.6 liter NAV came to us as an unmolested car.  No performance mods of any kind meant that this NAV would be a perfect blank canvas for before and after comparisons.

No performance modifications other than the NST CR-Lite Crank Pulley, same dyno, same day.
