    L67 Pulley Size

    I have an l67, recently put on new heads and it's running well with a 3.4" pulley. I plan to put in high ratio rockers and a mini blizzard w2a. My question is do I need a dyno tune to drop to a 3 2" pulley or can i order a mace memcal or a memcal from a reputable l67 tuner? Thanks!
