There’s no denying that a slammed custom C10 is super cool looking at local truck shows and cruise-ins, but looks can only get you so far in this speed-hungry community. That’s why we offer tech tips like these to help you gain an edge up on your custom car rivals. Sometimes you just have to spend money on upgrades that don’t add to the overall look of the truck. It may not add value to the outside appearance, but when you pop the hood or smash the gas pedal, you realize it was money well spent.
This month’s recommendation is a set of drive pulleys for your LS based engine. This upgrade will dramatically change the appearance and performance of your engine, and it’s something we think we can handle on your own if you have the time, tools and technical know-how. Eddie Motorsports’ drive system brackets and pulleys are CNC machined with precision from high quality 6061T6 aluminum. LS Chevy S-Drive pulley systems also include all of the necessary stainless-steel fasteners as well as the highest quality, name-brand components, including Tuff Stuff water pumps, Powermaster alternators, Gates belts and Maval power steering pumps.
We ordered Eddie’s Raven series kit, which came in all black and was unbelievably beautiful. There is an extra charge for kits with anodized finish and even all-black components, so keep that in mind. For the install we turned to our installers at Overpower Customs in Lake Park, Florida. The crew walked us through all the steps, and it was a super smooth install. Let;s get into it!
