One of the easiest and cheapest ways to turn up the boost on your 2nd Generation SVT Lightning is to install an aftermarket supercharger pulley. The pulley on a Ford Lightning consists of two separate locations for serpentine belt contact, the first is for the traditional accessories such as water pump, power steering and alternator, the second is dedicated to the supercharger. This design allows you to turn your supercharger pulley faster, increasing the boost, without increasing the speed on your accessories.
Replacing the lower pulley on your 1999-04 SVT Lightning is an easy way to increase boost. Some of the most popular lower crank pulleys are the 4lb and the 6lb lower pulleys. The extra PSI will give your F-150 performance truck a real boost in performance. Don’t forget to pick up a new belt below.
