2010 GT500 2.59" Pulley Upgrade

I will be doing this upgrade using the VMP stealth kit with pulley tool before I put the car back on the road this spring. Has anyone done who has done this upgrade have any "gotchas" or advice?

Car is stock except for a FR super changer resonator delete and a tune. The tune will be getting updated with the pulley. VMP specifically states that a plug change is not required so I was not planning on doing that.

Only tip I have is to use a pack of ice to cool down the blower snout. But I'm guessing your car has been sitting for a while, so you should be fine, VMP puller makes the install very simple.

You don't HAVE to do plugs, but I picked up 8 for 20 bucks at rock auto. NGK TR7s.

You went with NGK copper I take it? If I do plugs I was thinking of using Iridium but there seems to be two schools of thought out there on Iridium and if they offer much benefit at all.

Correct I run the copper plugs gapped at .028, I'm in the process of converting to E85, the plugs were recommended to me by my tuner.
I change them once a year.
