damn guys i didn't know a smaller pulley could add so much power to these cars! my brother in law has an older SC mini- should he buy a 15 or 19% pulley for his stock car?

this might be a cool gift for him!

Yeah, after a pulley, intake, injectors, and a tune, it's pretty much over though, haha. There's a big debate about putting a 19% pulley on a stock car because it'll end up spinning the SC too fast and possibly burn out both the SC and the water pump, so 15% is where it's at. It'll make a great gift considering they can be had for less than $150.

so I can just get the 15% pulley? Will I need to get his car tuned or can it run that way safely? Is it hard to install?
sorry for the noob questions but im not a mini guy- but would love to suprise my bro in law with a cool gift.

No need for a tune, the factory ECU can adapt fuel trims for that small of a PSI boost. I'd also grab a new SC belt ($35ish). I haven't changed one myself, but as I understand it, if either of you are at all mechanically inclined, it's pretty straight-forward, but you'll need a pulley removal tool. You can rent one from Helix Minisports in Manyunk, or have them do it for you (and they sell everything you'd need, too!) Good luck with it, and it'd be a definately cool gift.
