While NST 4AGE pulleys have always been a great way to shed unwanted weight from the rotating assembly by providing approximately 70% weight reduction vs OEM pulleys, the new versions photographed bellow are apx 80% lighter!  All other specs remain the same as before.

Product Description

The NonStopTuning Toyota Corolla Pulley Kit increases horsepower via great weight reduction and the underdriving of accessories. Superior to other available kits, NST kits also offer an Overdrive Alternator Pulley to optimize alternator output and keep the electrical system at OEM charging speeds.

Each kit 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 available in a choice of colors.

Please note: The pulleys that we list here for the AE86 Toyota Corolla are designed for the AE86 RWD 16V 4AGE. Customers with other variations of the 4AG are encouraged to contact us by email if they need more info regarding their applications.

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.

It’s no secret that NonStopTuning has offered popular lightweight pulley options for the 86 chassis.  Over the past decade NST has offered more options for the Toyota family of engines found in the AE86, including the 16V/20V variations of the 4AGE and 4AGZE, than all other companies combined.

Carrying that tradition forward, NST now offers a lightweight kit for the second coming of the 86 chassis and the FA20 powered Scion FRS, Subaru BRZ, and Toyota GT86.

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 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.

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.

We had the opportunity to test a set of NST pulleys on a stock BRZ this week.  Scott’s world rally blue pearl BRZ came to us as an otherwise unmolested test car.  No previously installed performance mods of any kind would ensure that we would get the best raw data possible.  The NST Pulley Kit is the only power adder that was added to this car during the session, and all dyno runs were performed on the same dyno, on the same day, at Carboy Racing in southwest Houston.
