ABA / AEG 2.0L 8V Lightweight Crank, Tensioner, and Alternator Pulleys

4.10 LBS

Product Description has designed CNC billet aluminum pulleys for the ABA / AEG 2.0L 8V Engines. Each pulley is precision machined to a run out of less than .001 on one of our HAAS CNC mill-lathes. The products are completed entirely on the CNC mill, and therefore have a nearly chrome surface finish. We are now offering the billet crank, tensioner, and alternator pulleys. Complete set reduces rotating mass by over 4 lbs! Buy them as a set and save !! 

Billet ABA Crank Pulley 
Designed as an integral one piece pulley and fabricated from a solid chunk of 6061-T651 aluminum, this one weighs less than half of what the OEM crank pulley weighs. Comes complete with Grade 10.9 bolts for a drop in installation. Timing mark machined in as well. You can choose to order this pulley without the power steering V belt section if you are not running power steering.  Be sure to choose from the drop down menu.

Fits MK3 Jetta/Golf 2.0 ABA, as well as AEG engines. Buy them as a set and save !! 

Note : This crank pulley has been designed to fit normal ABA engines as well as engines with an ABA 2.0L bottom end with a 16V or 20V head. It will also fit on 1.8T engines swapped into MkII and MkIII chassis which utilize the MkIII ABA 2.0L accessories bracket, water pump and alternator. 

This pulley is NOT simply the HEAVY ABA crank pulley re-machined! 

It is a super-light billet aluminum version of the ABA crank modified to fit a wide range of engine configurations. 

Billet ABA Tensioner Pulleys 
This pulley is manufactured from 6061-T651 aluminum and comes with a 20k RPM SKF bearing. With a max load and RPM rating over two times the OEM bearing, this billet tensioner will far outlast the OEM plastic part while taking any abuse you can throw at it. The upgraded bearing is larger than OEM, but the pulley is sized for perfect fitment on the engine and is very quick to install. Tech tip – use a 19mm open end wrench on the inboard side of this pulley to hold it in place while installing. The OEM pulley requires a 17mm open end wrench. The website picture will be updated soon, see our MK4 1.8T/2.0 tensioner pulley for similar picture. 

Fits MK3 Jetta/Golf 2.0 ABA. Buy them as a set and save !! 

Billet ABA Alternator Pulley 
This one is a paper light 100 gram version of the OEM steel pulley crafted from 6061-T651 aluminum. Allows the engine to spin up quickly and completes the set!

    I received the Alternator pulley, I wasn’t expecting it to be so light, but it’s extremely light and the quality is top tier!

  2. Quality parts for quality builds ! 5 Star Review

    I'm running a fully built aba 2.0 with a vr waterpump pulley and abf alternator setup so a standard kit wouldn't work as I'm not using a tensioner. I was able to put together a custom pulley set to match my setup and still get the set price . These products are a great way to show fellow enthusiasts that no expenses or attention to detail was spared in the creation of your automotive masterpiece!

  6. Billet ABA Crank Pulley 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Jun 2014

    Very nice pulley. Could definitely feel the difference on the built 2.1 ltr 8 valve NA aba. Just wish there was a paper or something that came with it, to explain what the extra spacer was for, so i didn't have to install it twice. Didn't quite look right with the spacer installed. Did some research and I guess that spacer is for the 16 valve conversion?
