This pulley is designed to give your FIAT 124 a boost in performance by reducing rotating mass of the factory pulley. The stock pulley on the FIAT 124 weighs 2.85lbs, the new replacement pulley weighs about a 1/3rd at only .95 lbs.





This pulley is the same diameter as the stock (OEM) pulleys, utilizing the original belt layout. Since the crank pulley diameter is unchanged, they maintain alternator output at exactly stock output levels so you need not worry about flat batteries or weak charging capabilities.

So the part costs $150.00. What is your estimate of installation costs? :confused:

Are going to include installation instructions/video including torque specs for the bolts?

We budget 1.5 hours for installation of the pulley.

We have LOTS of plans for videos and future install DIY's but, for now, the installation is pretty straight-forward since this 1.4L motor has been around since 2012. In short, it involved releasing the tension for the v-belt, removing the three bolts that secure the pulley to the crank, removing the old pulley and installing the new one in place. Then you install the 3 bolts and torque to 18 ft. lbs and reinstall the belt.

The original question was: "Your estimate of installation costs?" Your shop rate X 1.5 hours = what? Especially for those members who do not have the shop equipment you mention in your notes.

Great, but what does it do for "off-idle" torque...which the car doesn't generate a lot of?

CA_Kid. We answered your questions with a time frame rather than a dollar amount because shop rates vary but installations times should remain rather consistent.

We charge $120.00/hr labor rate other areas are higher while some are lower. That is the reason we listed the time frame so you’ll be able to determine what the going rate should be for your location based on the hourly rate your local shops charge.

Hope that made sense.

RBH58 the gains we saw were about 3-4 ft/lbs in the mid RPM range. The main thing to consider with a part such as this is to think of it as a smaller part of a much larger puzzle.

We offer many other items (MAXFlow, GoPedal, MAXPower ETC.) that offer more substantial increases in performance/drivability so if that is what you are looking for (and you haven’t completed any of those modifications) we would advise to look there first since you will gain more of a performance increase versus just instilling a pulley.

That being said all of the products work well together regardless of the order you install them so you’ll be good no matter which path you take.
