Talking fan belt change

Well its about time to change my fan belt, so I think I will add another accessory to my motor. My question is are all dual cp3 kits created equal or is one brand better than others? I'm sure I am going with a ppe kit just wanted to find out differences.

The quality and appearance of the ATS kit is better than the PPE kit. Unless PPE has changed their lines they are rubber push-loc and the ATS kit is braided stainless. I actually bought my ATS kit cheaper than I could the PPE. I vote for the ATS kit.

I don't know if you can buy the pump seperate from the mounting kit, but if it was me, I would buy a mounting and plumbing kit from PPE and then run a modyfied Wicked Diesel or Super Diesel pump. Also PPE and ATS use different routing with their belts so the belts are likely different lengths.

I do like the ATS pulleys and set-ups more but after the DPF debacle, I won't support them any longer.

I wasn't going with ats because of the whole dpf thing but I wanted to hear differrences in all of them. I had already thought about just buying the plumbing kit then getting the cp3 by itself. Is mde making any more diy kits?

just don't want to support them because of all the dpf stuff that came about, but in the end if it comes down to money and they are cheaper I might have to.

Out of principle is the only reason I can think of. But in the end whatever gets you down the track the fastest for the least amount of money makes the most sense I suppose.

But this isn't about me so I will stfu now!
