    so dude on ebay. shot him the offer and he accepted. couldnt pass it up for that price. would an all billet one look nice, absolutely but thats a bunch of money i didnt have to spend. plus ive read about a couple of folks not liking their high dollar ones. if i can get metco to make me a matching pulley ill be all in for about $150

    Ya I’ve seen the pics. Looks mint on your car. Mine is MG though so not sure. I think I’m the sun the lighter carbon might come out. Just don’t want it to be a black hood vs MG.

    Weighed my turd yesterday. 3660 with almost a full tank. **** that

    That's always an option too. And some folks swear by the metco brace

    I have metco brace. They have a hard plastic bump stomp that the tensioner arm rubs on. Over 3 years the stop is pretty warn so it's working

    Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but did Metco ever get back to you on how to make their tensioner pulley work with their tensioner? I just bought the Roush tensioner and Metco pulley. Bolt is definitely too long.
