I just have a few questions as to procharger setups.

1. When do you really need to step up to the 8 rib setups? I'm curious about belt slippage
2. I have a 2009, will I need a 2008 crank pulley?
3. Anyone upgrade to a Tial BOV or big red? any opinions?

I dont really hear a lot of procharger guys getting belt slip, since the power slowly builds. I know a lot of maggie guys use a cog setup since power is instantaneous. In terms of a BOV thast really more a preference. I know there are members here that use the big red valve becasue it sounds like a JET. Heres a link with some info.

The d1 already comes with an 8 rib setup.
The bov as an upgrade is just for sound. Not worth the extra money.

The crank pulley you have is fine. Just make sure you don't have an under drive pulley installed.

As far as belt slip, I don't have any. Shifting at almost 6800rpms with a 3.9 pulley making 11.5lbs of boost, I'm good to go
