Default 1.8 Pulley vs 1.6

I am looking to swap my 1.6 pulleys (water pump, altenator, and crank pulley over to 1.8. Looking for a small boost pump for my m45 supercharger. My question is are all 1.8 pulleys the same? The thread i saw was talking about 94-97 pulley swaps. There is a 99 near me I can get this stuff off of. (and no i dont want to put the 99 engine in my car )

There are two different crank shaft pulleys for the NB, a Cast Iron pulley and a steel pulley. If you ever intend to use a crank overlay pulley to increase the boost from the supercharger you need the steel crank pulley, the overlay pulley will not work with the cast iron pulley.

From what I know, a 1.8 alternator pulley won't work on a 1.6 alternator.

This, the shaft size is different.

How does one put a 1.8 in a 1.6 then? A NA 1.8 alternator?

Yep, a 1.8 alternator is a must.

Pity as I have 3 mint 1.6 alternators that are totally useless.
