I'm planning on doing more boost and to avoid any belt slipage was also going to do a 8 rib conversion. I was wondering if anyone has done the 8 rib conversion on there 96-98 4.6l?
I see G.I. Joe/BBG Performance has a kit for 750 with supercharger pulley and I'm told Riechard Racing makes them also - price unknown.
However, I'm also told you can piece it together with f-150 truck pulleys for about half the price (below).
Pulley Part Number
Supercharger - Vortech
Idle (x2) - YS-250
Altinator - GP-720
Power Steering - XL3Z-3A733-AA
Water Pump - F6TZ-8509-AA
A/C - YB-522
Tensioner - 1L3Z-6B209-AA
Crank - XL3Z-6312-CA

Is this correct????? Has anyone done it? Are they direct replacements or do they need to be shimmed or modified?

Vortech also makes a maxgrip 8 rib pulley kit but, it states it for 2000 to 2005 Mustang GT.
What / Is there a difference between the pulleys on a 96-98, 99, 00-05 mustangs 4.6L engines? I thought only the intake and heads were different.

Thanks for your help.:)

IMO, they should all be direct replacement except for the vortech will need to be shimmed out and apparently you need to shim the water pump pulley or get the water pump with the long shaft.
