Zhp ess ts2 with under drive pulleys????

I've currently have a 05 330ci Zhp with turnermotorsport under drive pulleys on it and my ess ts2 will be here Friday. My question is if I can keep the pullies on the car with it supercharged. It is only the alt, ps pump and water pump so it won't affect the supercharger speed since it's a factory crank pulley. Anyone have experience with this?

You won't have any problems.

You'll just need to figure out the proper belt size. The belt that ESS sends you assumes you have stock diameter pulleys.

You'll love the TS2 kit.

Watch out for the torque specs on the intake manifold bolts. Check out my TS2 install notes thread, I compiled a bunch of stuff I think should be considered an addendum to the installation instructions.

Good info.

I have an assortment of belt sizes, some I have used with different pulley arrangements.

The intake manifold torque settings, yes... Use a small torque wrench for better safety margin.

Ok, so I'll just have to size up a belt. That will work for me, not too big of deal. Haha. I've got a snap on 3/8 5 to 75 ftlb torque wrench. Or do I need to go inch lb. I haven't been able to read the install instructions yet. I'm ready to get it on though. I have a autocross event Sunday so I am waiting till Sunday evening to start since I'm afraid if I tear it down Friday that I'll run into a issue and not have the car going. At least doing it Sunday I'll have 2 weeks till the last race of the season.

Have you all tried the gator back Goodyear belts? I use to have a vortech on my mustang and it was pushing 10 psi and after having that belt I use to creep up to 11, it just helped a ton with what little belt slip I had that I didn't even notice before.

I'm also curious with this kit, has anyone added a resivoir for the supercharger coolant? Il like to add one in the dead space on the passenger side since having my coolant can keep intake temps down and when you track it you could fill it with ice to really cool it down. I use to do that with my after cooler for the vortech since it had a 1 gallon resivoir

I have thought of it but can't find a suitable location that will blend with the rest of the engine and not require extensive re-routing of hoses. There was something similar on the AA TwinScrew, but can't remember if it was a reservoir or simply a hose to top-up

Davew has a coolant reservior, he posted pics of it too, I think in his long build thread in this section of the forums. His car has open space on the drivers side that he was able to use.

EDIT: here it is http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthr...t#post16647904
And this http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthr...r#post16656470

I personally can't find a good place to put it. I'm using the "drug bin" on the passenger side of the engine bay for a oil catch cant that I piped in-line before the PCV. I catch a lot of crap in there that I'm glad isn't going back through the twin screw and down the intake...

Oh yes, she is a sexy beast isn't she? You going to get a "before" dyno with some baseline numbers before the install?

Just FYI

If you install the Turner Power Pulley kit with the alternator pulley you'll probably have to notch the ESS pulley bracket a bit, maybe 2mm or so.

But, if you use an INA overrun pulley instead (see this thread here: http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=806821), it still clears (don't mind the black mark, that was were I thought I'd have to grind the bracket, but didn't need to after all)



If you install the Turner waterpump pulley, power steering pump pulley, and the INA OAP with the TS2 kit you'll want a Gates K060760 or 6PK1928 belt (outside circumference of about 1940mm)
