    As promised, we are announcing the availability of our supercharger pulleys for the Hellcat on this site first. Our website is now accepting orders (link below), and we will fill orders as soon as possible.

    As I have indicated, these pulleys will be sold with the strong recommendation that they be installed professionally. The process will require removal of the upper portion of the supercharger, separating the snout from the case, performing the pulley swap, re-assembly, and (of course) tuning. It would not be practical for us to attempt to provide step-by-step instructions, and as a manufacturer (and not an installation shop), we may not have the answers to your questions. We very strongly suggest contacting an expert.


    All of the boost gains we quote for pulley sizes are approximate. We have learned over the years how difficult it can be to predict a boost level, and the Hellcat has proven to be no exception. There are many factors that can impact your boost level, including any supporting modifications made, altitude at which the vehicle is tested, the specifics of your tune, and more. Also note that we will not quote power gains - dyno results depend heavily upon the tune, and we will refrain from suggesting a specific amount of added horsepower. We know our pulleys work.


    These pulleys will be among the very first production pulleys shipped. As an experienced supercharger pulley manufacturer, we are very confident in our design, manufacturing processes, and fitment, and (as you know) our validation process has been lengthy. However, if anyone experiences any issues with the fitment of our pulley or finds any unexpected variation with their car, we will stand behind the pulley and provide the necessary assistance to get the pulley installed.

    Hellcat1, your pulley is ready.

    Rick, will you have stock at WannaGoFast or should I order this now.

    Do you have a dyno graph to show for any of these?

    Will Metco be selling or providing part numbers for the required belts for each size?

    For the 2.4" what other supporting mods should be used other than tuning?

    In my original post in this thread, I explain why we will not publish dyno sheets or discuss specific power gains.

    As we accumulate belt data, we will share it with our customers. In the near future, I expect to be able to provide information on recommended belt lengths like we do for other applications, but as a manufacturer we will not stock or sell belts.

    With regards to supporting modifications, you should consult your tuner. Please bear in mind that the 2.40" pulley is intended for competition applications.

    We have a number of these pulleys in stock at this time, and plan to have more with us at the WannaGoFast event next weekend.

    $259.99 gets you the complete supercharger pulley assembly. There are no other pulleys included.
    Of course, you will need a tune, and based on the size you choose, the original belt may still be appropriate.

    If you are referring to the billet idlers, the smooth idler (beneath the supercharger pulley) is finished and tested, and the grooved tensioner pulley (to the left of the supercharger pulley) is in production as I type this.

    We need to start a list of competent installers and tuners. I would be interested in this but doubt there is anyone close to Michigan that can do this?

    Question : If one has lost boost pressure due to altitude could one of these pulleys be used to bring boost back up to stock levels.

    They're just 'current best sellers' as it says. Not hellcat related
