Im positive we have a RRB (13810-RRB-A01) pulley not a RRC.....

The RRC its a bit smaller, with will be better for a N/A set up.

Will quote a very wise and K-series genious (ate the same time, explaning why I didnt go for aftermarket aluminium puleys) :

"There are 3 different Harmonic Vibration Dampeners for these engines. That which you're calling a crank pulley is much more than just a pulley, in fact that's very much it's secondary function. As the name implies the primary function is to dampen out destructive harmonic vibrations that happen in all crankshafts at certain rpm.
The K20A Type R unit is the smallest in diameter at 5.115", same diameter as the S2000 engines
The K20A2 is in the middle at 5.465"
The K24's use the largest diameter unit at 5.980"
The overall weight of each of them is just about the same, but the important part is the mass of the inertia ring, that part of the dampener that has the pulley grooves machined into it. It's separated from the hub section by a vulcanized rubber ring which is how the whole thing works, the vibrations in the crank are dampened out by the inertia ring through the rubber.
There are other designs as well, but this one is the most cost effective for production engines so it's the design used by all OEM's except Chevrolet, and then only on the new Z06 Corvette. It uses the Fluidamper design. Much better but also a LOT more expensive.
As the relative diameter of the crank pulley gets smaller it reduces the speed of all the pulleys driven by it, resulting in lower parasitic HP loss. The smaller diameter also allows the engine to rev quicker because the moment of inertia is lower, much the same as a light-weight flywheel.
I use the Type R unit on every engine I build."

Am I right in thinking that if you fit the incorrect pulley you could end up emphasizing the harmonic vibes and increasing wear?

Nope, would an DC5 belt work as it has proper steering too, or is the crank pulley a different size?

Im sure the k20A3 has the bigger pulley like our FN2.... Needs to be the k20a engine.

Thanks for taking the time tho.

Will keep looking

Hi,

Yes it is 138mm, when measured across the top of the pulley groves.

I was measuring the od of the whole pulley which is about 147-148mm on the RRB from our FN2.

Anyhows, the RRC pulley has the 137mm OD, so will check the correct Diameter across the groves later to see how big it is... should be around 127mm..
