Mike here from NonStopTuning | NST USA
. As some of you may know, and have on other cars of yours, NST offers a variety of products for popular makes and models, mainly our lightweight line of aluminum pulleys.
I'm curious to see if any of you here would be interested in a lightweight crank pulley and/or accessory pulleys for the 1.4 and/or 1.8 Cruze?
NST would have the ability to develop these items IF there is sufficient demand in the community, so if you are interested please speak up.
(Mods, please don't be too quick to pull the delete/lock trigger on this thread. NST would be happy to pay vendor fees IF the community shows support and demand for our brand and products. Thank you.)
In response to the feedback we've received from you guys, I decided to do a little homework. Based on the very limited info I've received from Chevy parts, and a little bit of searching online, it looks to me like:
1.4T 2011 seems to have a six rib crank pulley
1.4T 2012-2015 seems to have a five rib crank pulley
1.8 2011 seems to have a five rib crank pulley
1.8 2012-2015 seems to have a six rib crank pulley
What I would love to have from a few of you guys is some real world feedback. Please pop your hood and take a look at your belts to see if the info I've received is correct. You can either count the number of ribs on your belt or your crank pulley and/or alternator pulley to confirm for me. Pics would be an awesome bonus.
Final note: My data is based on units with a/c systems. I assume none of you in the USA own cars without a/c, correct?
Final note II: If any of you are in the Houston area and would like to be considered for prototype testing, please email [email protected]
Please note: NO discussion of any kind, regarding prototype testing will be handled via the forums. You MUST email us if interested in testing.
Thank you all!
