Hi, firstly i have done a search fro this and having a little trouble finding the answer that i need.

I currently have a 2012 VE Maloo that is running the Walkinshaw supercharger + plus a few other things.

I am looking to find where i can get the Gilmer drive kits to put on the rear pulleys.
They give a little more of the whine sound but the main reason is to help stop and belt slipping.

So if anyone knows where i can get these kits from it would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers

IMHO they sound bloody aweful but hey it's ur car. What size front pulley are you running to get rear drive slip? 20mm?

Cheers, will check out cappa.
yes the toothed pulleys do make a slight whine, but not much different from the Supercharger whine.
I guess if you you like the sound of a Supercharger, these gilmer kits would sound nice.

The idea was to eliminated any slip that you get with forced induction, plus better sound.
Currently running on around 10psi which is what Walkinshaw recommend to set them up at.

Cheers.
