Redesigned the idler pulley bracket on my X-Charger SuperX TVS to run a third pulley for more belt wrap. No more belt slip! This will work on all X-Chargers, not just the TVS.

X-Charger SuperX TVS here. Plenty of power! These are special order but are available. Ran an X-Charger HiPo and Xtreme for well over 100,000 miles and it was also a lot of fun!

Definitive answer:

No bracket necessary. They bolt directory to the steering knuckle. Unlike the stock floating calipers that only have pistons on one side and require a bracket so the calipers...

Actually Vogtland 953084 which is the standard lowering kit for a S197 Mustang GT would probably be better for most V6s for leveling.

You will get a little but not even close to as much as an X-Charger down low which makes it more fun on the street IMO. If you are only going to 4500RPM the X-Charger is a better option for sure.

Stage 1 if you are not boosted. Stage 3+ if you are boosted.

The stage 3 is not street friendly where the 3+ is.

X-Charger FTW
By far the best for a daily driver IMHO. Very low maintenance, easy install, tons of online support and the best support there is from Explorer Express.
