How hot does 2.6 pulley run?

I know it is a silly question but (touches thier pulley after driving)except my son. Does seem hot though, you could lay your hand on stock pulley but this one will blister you!

Is this on the OEM blower? Thats one of the big draw backs to spinning these positive displacement blowers faster than what they were originally pulled for. My blower breathes fire now and vaporized the coolant as it exited the intercooler on a 2.3L Whipple 3 valved car.

Yep, OEM blower with 12lb pulley. Pulley is runing just under 200 degrees driven lightly, not over 3000rpm.

200 degress...not bad. Try hot enough to melt the o-rings in the intercooler and deform the molded plastic fittings on the over flow tank.

There are a few things you can do to try and bring them back down. Bigger intercooler, water pump, meth injection, water injection just to name a few.
