It spins at a particular RPM and if you were to install a larger pulley, then the belt would move faster. A belt, unless it's slipping, is no different than if all the pulleys were gears connected together. The only thing that determines how fast the gears spin is how fast the drive gear is spinning and how large it is.

If the belt is not slipping (which would only cause you less boost), if the crank pulley did not change, the charger pulley speed will not either, period. They must have thought you have a smaller crank pulley as well... for whatever reason. That's the only possible explanation I can think of for their logic.
Exactly!...i dont understand the logic behind it. I made it clear that i dont have a crank pulley changed cuz thats what i thought they were mixing things up with, but i got the same answer from them.
