2006 C6 Corvette Supercar - 177_7787

To facilitate the preceding task, much ground work needed to be completed in order to accommodate. The supercharger belt drive system must be dedicated to the charger only. On many vehicles an additional pulley can be mounted forward to accommodate the supercharger accessory and the original accessory belt system can remain. Unfortunately the C6 Corvette does not have space available to accept an additional pulley. A modified HPE Flip Drive is used to remove the alternator and P/S from the front belt location at the crankshaft. The original A/C (rear) belt drive position at the crankshaft will now share to drive their step out idler. This now essentially becomes the accessory drive pulley for the alternator and P/S. The front pulley location is now isolated and available for the supercharger belt.
