Griptec Pulleys: BOOST Your Supercharger Performance

If you're looking to boost the performance of your supercharged vehicle, upgrading to a Griptec pulley should be at the top of your list. These industry-leading pulleys are known for their superior grip, which translates to more power and better performance on the road or track. Here's what you need to know about Griptec pulleys and why they are the industry standard.

What Are Supercharger Pulleys?

Supercharger pulleys, also known as "uppers", "supercharger pulleys" or "blower pulleys", are a critical component of a supercharger system. The pulley connects the supercharger to the engine's crankshaft (and other belt-train components including idler pulleys) and controls the speed of the supercharger's rotors. By changing the size of the pulley, you can adjust the boost level and increase horsepower.

How Different Pulley Sizes Change Boost

A smaller supercharger pulley will spin faster and increase boost, while a larger pulley will spin slower and decrease boost. This means that by changing the size of the pulley, you can fine-tune your supercharger's performance to match your driving needs. Griptec pulleys are available in a wide range of sizes, allowing you to customize your boost level and power output.

Why Grip is Important

The key to a Griptec pulley's performance is its superior grip. Unlike traditional pulleys that rely on friction to transfer power, Griptec pulleys use a patented tooth profile that ensures maximum grip and minimal slip. This means more power is transmitted to the supercharger, resulting in better performance and faster acceleration.

Belt Tension To Relieve Slip

Another critical factor in a supercharger system's performance is belt tension. A loose belt can slip and reduce power output, while an overly tight belt can damage the supercharger and other components. Griptec's blower pulleys are designed to maintain proper belt tension, ensuring reliable performance and long-lasting durability.

Over-spinning Superchargers is Bad... mmmkay

While increasing the boost level by over-spinning the supercharger can sound tempting, it can also be harmful to your engine and supercharger. Over-spinning can cause excessive heat and wear, leading to premature failure of your supercharger and other components. By choosing a Griptec supercharger pulley, you can optimize your supercharger's performance without risking damage to your engine or components.

Conclusion

Griptec pulleys are the industry standard for supercharger performance, providing maximum grip, optimal belt tension, and reliable performance. By choosing a Griptec pulley, you can customize your supercharger's performance to match your driving needs and take your vehicle's performance to the next level. So, if you're looking to upgrade your supercharger system, be sure to consider a Griptec pulley for the best results.
