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.
The NST Lite series is a designation used for pulleys that are light-weight versions of their OEMcounterparts. All NST pulleys are built using High quality 6061-T6 aircraft aluminum and are easily 65% to 70% lighter than steel or cast iron OEM pulleys. Every NST pulley is hard anodized for exceptional durability and is a great item for use at the track or on the street.
OEM Veloster Crank Pulley – 48 oz
NST CR-Lite Crank Pulley – 14 oz
The NST CR-Lite Pulley 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.
