  1. i'm in process on this swap right now, and have a question: my nissan/hitachi pulley is badly worn, and i'd like to use a new v-belt pulley on the cs144. there are plenty of 2" diameter options, but should i be using a 3/8" or 5/8" WIDTH pulley? it's hard to measure based on my stock nissan pulley, and the brand new, nissan oem belt is almost exactly 1/2" wide. any experience/opinions?

  4. my 280z was already upgraded with the honda blower, but the larger kia blower is significantly better at moving air. if anyone is considering an upgrade from stock i highly suggest going straight to the kia unit, it's a better fan at a more affordable price(i picked one up on ebay brand new for half the cost of a used honda one).
