Power Pulleys creat less drag on the motor and in turn doesnt create power just frees up power that was always there.

They really aren't the most expensive bang for the buck. UUC offers a set for $185 on their website. not that bad.. (I have them personally)

LoL yea they are the most expensive bang/buck... They give you a "dynoTested" 3 hp and thats the UUC dyno which are inflated so they can sell their own products better
even if it is correct. 3 hp for $185? pfft yea right. Your better off getting a 9 lbs flywheel and a lightweight clutch. That will give you better downshifting engine reaction, and more pop off the lowend.

ya, well Supersprint headers are like $1200 and you only get what.. 10 horses? I totally agree with you on the uselessness of lightened accessory pulleys, but overall, your engine and components last longer due to less stress placed upon those working parts. I wish i had a manual transmission, every time i get in my car i kick myself for not buying one. So, i cannot get a lightweight flywheel or clutch unfortunately.

Tomorrow is the day i install the UUC pulleys. ill let you all know if i can notice any slight difference.

for you what would really make a difference is going to a 3.61 or .73 rear end... that would be a kick. Especially since its automatic.
