Mustang Pulleys & Interior

Chris Duke from Motorz TV shows you how to install underdrive engine pulleys and carbon fiber interior with billet pieces from Silver Horse Racing on a 2008 Ford Mustang GT (S197).

Episode Notes

This episode features two installs on our two different 2008 Ford Mustang GT project vehicles. The first install shows how to upgrade your stock underdrive pulleys which slows down accessory speed by about 25% and as a result reduces parasitic accessory drag on the engine and improves performance.

The second install features a massive real carbon fiber dash kit with billet aluminum accessories all provided by Silver Horse Racing.

    another great video chris, just a question how exactly do you know when you have properly torqued you screws. for example, the crankshaft pulley need to be set to 66 FT/LBS, how do you know when it has reached that mark, i know its probably a dumb question but i am just curious

    iphone is awesome so many uses

  4. TheTarrMan Says:

    Do they make that stick-on-stuff in a wood finish? The carbon-fiber stuff look’s tacky. LMAO!!!!!

  5. lilfree22 Says:

    i love this color!!

  6. greencard Says:

    too much carbon fiber

  7. fighterace34 Says:

    too much in the interior

  8. squidman101 Says:

    @biffnacid i think on a torqe wrench you can set it to the the torqe and it clicks when you have reached it

  9. driftazn Says:

    i have seen a chevy with a escalade front end.

  10. nickyb628 Says:

    @biffnacid with torque wrenches you set the ft/lbs. to spec and then just tighten until the wrench clicks. it knows when you’ve reached the desired ft./lbs.

  11. Caseybat94 Says:

    supercharger kit coming soon?

  12. fordtruck0 Says:

    I think the CF is a bit much but I’ve seen far worse at car shows. I think I’ll do the underdrive pulleys though. thx for the how-to!

  13. alexvrce Says:

    this carbon fiber “upgrade” is really a down grade. the point of carbon fiber is less weight on the car…this adds weight to the car…

  14. mrjost55 Says:

    looks very tacky

  15. coolguy23448 Says:

    The carbon fiber looks sick it covers alot! of surface area!

  16. andrestnt Says:

    that fake CF right?

  17. kimchi1977 Says:

    like everybody else, the underdrive pulley upgrade is cool, but the cf inlays are a waste of money. Better to spend the money on some better tires, or suspension upgrades.

  18. motorztv Says:

    @andrestnt No, that is real CF. Check the motorz tv website

  19. man1d2tran Says:

    At 21:49 why were you checking that area near the mirror switch? What happened?

  20. boy638 Says:

    how much does those CF cost?

  24. Ahkomaton Says:

    LOVE the carbon fiber look!

  25. outlawsonic Says:

    love the under drive pulleys, and the billet pieces. And a little over bored on the CF less is more.

  26. salemcripple Says:

    Too much carbon fiber in my opinion. And do you actually use that motocross helmet in the background? Or is it for show? P.S. HA! cut springs. I remember doing that back in the mid 90’s when nobody made lowering springs for anything. That’s old school!

  27. salemcripple Says:

    And “closer to completion”? A true project car is never complete! lol

  28. NissanN12Dude Says:

    Interesting pulley mod! And that carbon fiber interior looks great! Awesome!

  29. raydenx Says:

    How much is the BHP gain?

  30. BloodyNeighbor Says:

    If the carbon fiber doesn’t replace the OEM piece, then there’s not much point. Real or not. If you don’t like the plastic look, then you can always opt for a gloss black one. Saleen has it now for the ’10+ Mustang, but other aftermarket companies should have them once it catches on.

  31. mikeyboy236 Says:

    Ugh… That’s just a stupid amount of carbon fiber.

  32. frostedflake753 Says:

    haha bs no way thats real CF

  33. motorztv Says:

    @frostedflake753 It has real carbon fiber inside the pieces… you can see it if you look at it. It’s not a print or some other cheesy material.

  34. motorztv Says:

    Yes, that’s my helmet from when I had my Banshee.

  35. zYzmrZIzYz Says:

    @mikeyboy236 yea, that’s a little too much, the aluminum are nice

  36. salemcripple Says:

    @motorztv Nice! I use to have a Banshee. Now own a YFZ 450.

  37. raconter1 Says:

    Nicely done! :) Jack

  38. AngelicTonyDawg Says:

    Sorry thats way too much CF makes it look like a kid owns the car and doesnt know what he is doing but awsome job on the pulleys, love your show and exspecaily enjoy the longer fuller episodes

  39. 21mejia25 Says:

    You said its a project car right?? no project is complete without gears! you should do a gear install!!

  40. MeanStang08 Says:

    great job on the UD pulleys… and hey, to each their own on the CF dash.. it looks good, and i’m sure no one has ever seen one installed unless they did it themselves already… keep up the awesome work Chris! awesome show!

  41. jwth2005 Says:

    @motorztv Banshee ftmfw

  42. BAH2005MustangGT Says:

    Great piece on the underdrive pulleys, I’m just about to install a set from ASP Racing! I’m not a fan of the stick-on CF though. If I was going to go for CF it’d have to be the real deal full replacement pieces, like those from Carbign Craft.

  43. Drifterzz89 Says:

    I know that underdrive pulleys increase the power but do they harm the car ?

  44. lawrenceisapimp Says:

    what site did you order all that CF from?

  45. drummingdave817 Says:

    way too damn much carbon fiber… looks pretty ugly

  46. motorztv Says:

    @lawrenceisapimp Check the Motorz TV website — look for the video and you’ll find a direct link. Thanks!

  47. motorztv Says:

    @Drifterzz89 No, they do not. They just re-distribute the power to different places.

  48. Drifterzz89 Says:

    @motorztv Wow Thanks :D that helped alot

  49. jeangrey65 Says:

    OMG, I’m so excited about installing my carbon fiber kit to my 2010 Camaro!

  50. wccrispy Says:

    @Drifterzz89 If you have a large sound system it may drain the battery and you may need to upgrade to a higher amperage alternator.

  51. assault6622 Says:

    If you ended up changing your mind, could you remove the carbon fiber without damaging the interior?

  52. motorztv Says:

    @assault6622 Yes. You might have to use a little bit of a mild adhesive remover, but it will not damage the interior.

  53. JokerPokerUberSmoker Says:

    @greencard yeh lol and its not even real carbon fiber xD

  54. DudeWithaPage Says:

    When you put that much “stick on” carbon fiber, it should all be custom made….

  55. George08GT Says:

    You made the removal of the crank pulley look effortless. I can’t break the 18mm bolt as the crank keeps turning even though the belt is still connected and the car is in gear. Any suggestions?

  56. DRAGmaster24 Says:

    nice job guys

  57. YourMKArcadeSource Says:

    @motorztv I know for a fact that they are not recommended for stock 86-93 5.0’s due to severe voltage drop at idle due to the stock alternator not putting out enough amps at idle. Almost EVERYONE who installs underdrive pulleys on stock 5.0’s install the 130/150 amp alternator mod as well or you will have nearly nothing for power at idle At least that’s been my experience.

  58. motorztv Says:

    @YourMKArcadeSource Thanks for the info!

  59. DEADRISING72HR Says:

    hey is it hard to get the cover off where your shifter is to get the carbon fiber kit under it?

  60. motorztv Says:

    @DEADRISING72HR Not at all…

  61. motorztv Says:

    @DEADRISING72HR Not at all…

    Thats a sick CF kit and it must cost a arm and a leg but it may be i little to mush for my taste and id not use all of it

  66. 21min56secs Says:

    wait! you have to achieve top-dead-center before your remove or do anything with the pulley!

  67. cuteshadowKIA Says:

    Will the Carbon Fiber Parts fit an V6 to? the HO says for Gt, don´t know about size difference inside…

  68. V0DEAN Says:

    @DEADRISING72HR pull.

  69. V0DEAN Says:

  70. Clark Says:

    Can I order all CF online or is it only from storefront shops?

  71. 1411funnystuff Says:

    How much dose the carbon fiber kit cost?

  72. 1411funnystuff Says:

  73. BoycottGameStop Says:

    @1411funnystuff alot… i have a $1000 carbon fiber hood on my 05 mustang gt

  74. Dave Smith Says:

    This carbon fiber kit works great with the 2011 Camaro

  75. thyaaawad Says:

    @BoycottGameStop u can get them for about 100 bucks off ebay tho :/ done it to all my cars

  76. angelmtz4you Says:

    where can you order the carbon fiber dash board kit for and 01mustang gt? i really want to hear back from you guys , thanks!

  77. motorztv Says:

    @angelmtz4you Check with americanmuscle(dot)com — that’s where we got it for our 2008.

  78. jsmarais83 Says:

    that dash kit is such trash.. who wants to slap a bunch of stickers on the inside of their vehicle.. on top of which the carbon fiber fad will pass. The billet aluminum bits look amazing though!

  79. AwsomAlex Says:

    where can i buy a whole new dash for a 1988 honda civic hatchback???

  80. AwsomAlex Says:

    where can i buy a whole new dash for a 1988 honda civic hatchback???

  81. CarbonJohn Says:

    And all of that would look good, if those parts were really reproduced or wrapped in carbon fiber. Way to rice out that interior…

  82. CarbonJohn Says:

    @AwsomAlex I have a garbage can outside my shop with scraps of carbon fiber. It would look better. Please reconsider real carbon fiber pieces. Yes itl run you a couple of K for a full good interior, but its better than ricing out an already civic of a civic.

  83. CarbonJohn Says:

    @StormTecify Its not a sick cf kit. Its a cheap ebay $100 kit. A sick kit would cost thousands. I would know. I sell them…

  84. wonderbreadkw Says:

    ur using steeda pulleys arent you. ur killin me with the steeda products man. american muscle has roush pulleys on sale for august at 199.00 and steedas are 214.00, what would be the best way to go?

  85. motorztv Says:

    @wonderbreadkw Either one will be fine. There is probably little difference.

  86. suddnstar Says:

    I wonder, what do you do with all those parts that you remove? Like the bumpers, driveshaft, brake rotors etc. I’ve upgraded parts on my car, and don’t know what to do with them. I don’t want to throw them out, because they are perfectly good parts.

  87. motorztv Says:

    @suddnstar CraigsList :)

  88. xromad01 Says:

    a cam or stiff springs make the dash panels fall off.however the chrome parts such as the cup holder trim,ebrake handle,shifter trim,etc are pretty good.

  89. Sjackson2369 Says:

    not a big fan of the carbon fiber look. billet aluminum looks great, but the carbon fiber in such a large amount just looks tacky. i think it would have been a bit better with carbon fiber on the center of the console around the stereo and climate control systems, and then more billet on the rest of the dash and center console.

    where do you grt all of the cars and trucks?

    @doyouknowme769 We usually use personal vehicles from the crew on the show. If we need one specifically that we don’t have, though, we find one locally.

  101. Johanrai Says:

    Where did you get all the carbon fiber interior for your mustang? Do you have any idea if there is similiar interior for a ford cougar -99? Oh and great videos, the videos has given me many new ideas for customising my cougar. :)

  102. motorztv Says:

    @scout6686 It has a 3M adhesive on the back, plus you add 3M adhesion promoter first which keeps it on for the long haul.

  103. scout6686 Says:

    @motorztv thanks a lot seriously

  104. ericngohp Says:

    hey is it possibly to convert a 2007 mustang gt to a 2007-2008 mustang gt500kr? by installing hood and frount bumper?

  105. 00unknownmember00 Says:

    the carbon pieces alone gave the mustang an extra 50hp because it’s so light…:)

  114. 1stbluSS Says:

    IMO it’s too much carbon but you can do it different ways. For instance in my mustang I didnt use the carbon pieces for the dash at all or on the steering wheel. I also didnt use it ON the radio. I simply did the door handles, and center console and around the radio. Giving three textures inside my car, aluminum, flat black, and carbon fiber. All of one material is too much. To each their own

    Watching the install of all that gaudy, fake carbon fiber was painful… and you had to break stock pieces to do it? Thanks for making my Mustang more valuable.
