In 2002 ALTA Performance was the first manufacturer to design a two piece, taper fit Mini Cooper Supercharger Pulley. Today, It is the most imitated design on the market. Their latest version of the ALTA pulley has taken pulley design to the next level. Installation is easier than ever, and the results are even more fantastic. The ALTA supercharger pulley will increase your MINI s horsepower by 20WHP. No additional modifications to the engine or ECU are required.
The ALTA supercharger pulley features a stainless steel supercharger shaft coupler with installation site aperture and direct torque technology. The ultra light aluminum body decreases rotational inertia and overall weight. Over-sized belt retainers and grooved teeth increase belt grip. A decorative end cap faceplate provides a clean sleek look.
With the simple installation of this pulley and no other modifications boost is raised 3-5 psi and engine output by 15 to 20 horse power. No other modifications to ECU required. Customers with other existing modifications, such as Cold Air Intake, Cat-Back Exhaust, or Crank Pulley will see even better results! Regardless the first time you hit the gas pedal, you will immediately feel the difference!
ALTA Pulleys are offered in two sizes: 15 and 17% reductions. The 15% pulley is the market standard and produces smooth, safe power increases. For those seeking a bit more power, the 17% is the ideal choice! Builds boost at lower RPM s giving you even more power down low where you need it, combined with another 1.5 lbs at redline gives you the extra HP to conquer even the toughest challenge!
Ease of Installation
Simply lift the engine, remove stock pulley using the ALTA Version 2.0 pulley puller and slide your new ALTA Performance Version 2.0 pulley directly onto the supercharger shaft. Tighten the bolts, lower the engine back into place and your done! There is no longer reason to remove the entire supercharger to pull off and press on a pulley.
The ultra light weight 6061T6 aluminum pulley body decreases rotational inertia and overall weight. Over-sized belt retainers and grooved belt teeth, preventing belts from jumping off, and increase belt grip. Cooling holes are drilled into the belt retainers to keep pulley temps in check. A decorative end cap faceplate provides a clean sleek look. Pulley body and shafts are balanced to within .02 grams (even better than stock.)
The ALTA Performance SuperCharger pulley features a stainless steel supercharger shaft coupler with installation site aperture and ALTA are the first to offer Direct Torque Technology( DTT ). The end of the shaft coupler is open and allows you to visibly see that the shaft collar is fully seated. DTT grips the supercharger shaft better then any press fit pulley and will work for those consumers who have had other pulleys slip and cause damage to the supercharger shaft. The ALTA hub will attach to supercharger shafts that have been worn down as much as .020".

ALTA Performance was founded in 1996 when owner Adam Taft, began to sell important performance parts from his parents’ architectural business in Beaverton, Oregon. Two years later, Adam rented space in a small retail store in an industrial part. It was at this point that ALTA Performance hired employees and began supplying inventory. Under the name ALTA Sports, it became the premier Honda tuning and aftermarket specialist in the Portland, Oregon area.
In 2002, ALTA Performance started offering aftermarket Subaru products because the Honda market became oversaturated. The Subaru products were so popular that the company dropped all its other ones. Jeff Perrin joined the ALTA staff as an installer and tech; at this time, ALTA began manufacturing some Subaru parts under the PERRIN brand name. PERRIN and ALTA parts were selling like hotcakes and the company was forced to move once again to a larger warehouse. ALTA Performance added new vehicle lines to its portfolio like the EVO and Scion.
In 2007, ALTA Performance purchased a 25,000 square-foot facility in Hillsboro, Oregon. With room to grow, the brand could now add more production and office staff. For the first time since ALTA started manufacturing auto parts, it had a real showroom for local customers to visit and an in-house dyno for testing and tuning. Today, ALTA Performance continues to grow and has come a long way since its inception in 1996, where all of its inventory literally fit on a baker’s rack.
