Default Aster Bracket

I have seen a few GP on the aster bracket. seems like it was pretty easy to sell...considering how many people need them. have talked with bob about it and he says that hes just about caught up.

Ill explain personally in hopes that you will buy one.....

It is a bracket that holds the procharger much like the J bracket does, but with a few additions custom made onto it to limit belt slip and maybe even bearing failures.

When a procharger begins spinning at these super high rpm, the belt begins to move so fast that it stretches. . When this slippage occurs, things such as loss in boost pressure, thrown belts, etc. etc....and basically lower horsepower become a common issue at boost levels over 10-12lbs.

A sudden loss in ET/MPH at the track if your not constantly tightening it manually which is annoying.

The aster bracket, is the solution to these belt issues commonly associated with prochargers. Eliminate this issue and they are damn near hassle free, and with forced induction, that is a rare thing.

The main thing that makes it better is it has an auto spring loaded tensioner on it much like the one used to keep your belt taught against the water pulley, crank pulley etc.....so as the belt begins to stretch now, this tensioner keeps it tight,...giving you the full benefit of the blowers potential.

For example......



and just for ***** and giggles.
