Hello and welcome to the site. You are probably going to need a new snout. They are sold at zzperformance. <a target="_blank" href="https://www.zzperformance.com/grand_prix/products1.php?id=159&catid=106">https://www.zzperformance.com/grand_prix/products1.php?id=159&catid=106</a>

What size pulley were you trying to put on? If you e-mail zzperformance, maybe they will put the pulley on the snout for you if you decide to get a new snout. You could always look for a used snout on clubgp. Its just a matter of unbolting the alternator, then the 12 or so bolts on the snout and pulling it apart. Make sure you drain all the fluid out of the snout before you try to take it off. If you get a used snout, I would look into getting a new coupler for the snout. <a target="_blank" href="https://www.zzperformance.com/grand_prix/products1.php?id=155&catid=106">https://www.zzperformance.com/grand_prix/products1.php?id=155&catid=106</a>

And some new supercharger fluid to put in after you get the new snout on.

Here is a write up on how to change the coupler, it will also help you on how to take off the snout,

<p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt">What about re tapping the snout or using Helicoil to fix the thread?</p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"></p> <p> </p> <p> </p>

Actually, now that I think of it. Isn't the threaded part only for the breather nut. The pulley slides on the shaft of the snout. You can get a little black push in to go right in the threaded area. I believe ZZP supplies these with there modular system because the breather nut is no longer utilized with the MPS. Or try re-tapping the threads like said above.

the threaded part is just for the breather and can be pluged.did you thread the 8mm bolts into the snout far enough??if not they would pull out allot easier but you could have threads still in there just in a little deep.see if you cam get the 8mm bolts to thread into the deeper threads if there still there.if that wont work retap it or take it to a place that can press it on

I thought you needed the threads for the screw to pull the pulley on and when it was on properly it would come out. It's not just for the breather IIRC

^^ True, if you have access to a press, you can suck out the SC oil and remove the snout and then press the pulley the rest of the way on. Then you can recut the threads later or maybe even install a helicoil. That way you could keep the same threads, but i don't know if that size of helicoil is available. If you would rather not buy a new snout, i'd suggest removing the snout and pressing the pulley on with a press. It doesn't take long to remove once you suck out the SC oil. Hope this helps.
