Possible Pulley Development by NonStopTuning?

Hi everyone!

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!

Didn't know they were actually vending anything on here yet, seems at least with this thread they were just gauging interest.
At first, that's what I thought. But they do have an outlet store where you can get other items for the Cruze as well. Don't know How it matters when that was the only thing they'd bring to the table as "new"

Regardless, I'll try to keep an open line with them until they get the prototyping and production parts done. That is... Until I'm banned. Muahahahhaah.
More info on this project in the next couple days :)

In an effort to simplify things a bit, we've created two different GROUP BUY threads...

For the 1.4 TURBO owners...

For the 1.8 NATURALLY ASPIRATED owners...

Thanks all!
It looks to me as if your community is saying we shouldn't build anything for the Cruze and Sonic? Is that so?
Bump for reminder. :)
Sadly it looks like the community is not interested in these items. It's really too bad, I had high hopes for this chassis.

Huge thanks to the few who showed interested, unfortunately we will not be able to move forward if the majority of the community seems uninterested.

Thanks again.
Too bad nothing came of this. I'm interested in light weight pulleys.
