how was the install and how hard was it?cheffy said:The other pulley set that is commonly used on E46 is the evosport one and that one replaces the alternator pulley ( along with the water pump and power steering ). There are two different alternator pulleys - one for audiofreaks and one for non-audiofreaks.
After installing the RE pulleys, nothing was changed. (ie. steering was the same)
Speedfreak said:It does seem like a bargin. If you buy their exhaust now you get the pullies free, you can't beat that!
Do you see any difference in the steering effort? Or anything else?
No there is no Alt. pully. Thats because dropping the current isn't always good. Rogue explains it on their site. UUC offers two different alt. pullies, one for reg. guys one for audiofiles.
RE's directions on the tension pulley are correct. The Bentley manual is wrong. Under the dust cover for the tension pulley is the bolt that lets you relieve the tension for removal/installation of the belt. Size 8 hex and use something to help torque it a bit (small pipe over hex key). Move it very slowly clockwise and you'll get it to move. Everything else is easy otherwise.SL57 said:Just purchased a set of RE pullies, hope to get it install soon. I am going to install it myself, anybody has any advice for installation?
On the 330 you need to take out the electric fan, not a problem.StreetTrixE4six said:do u need to remove anything to do the install? headlight(s), intake, etc...?

I also took out the intake to give myself some elbow room but it's not necessary. Follow the RE directions, they're pretty good, just watch out for that tensioner.
