Default Next Step: Pulley

Anyone run this pulley? did you see the estimated 12whp gain? did the car need another dyno tune or is it just a simple bolt on as they describe? Any difference in daily driving?
Thank you

many ppl have this quick install cheap small gains, eliminates ac belt slippage. i think the only down fall is the fans dont blow as high(i think)

im pretty sure u can find a better price though

i would also look into get the 160 thermostat

Thanks for the info, guys so I'm getting that it gets rid of AC belt slippage, but also in some cases, makes it worse? How can this be? the lower temp thermostat is a great idea to keep from overheating. I'm looking for cheap upgrades that make the most bang for their buck. It is out of the question if I have to pay another $400 for a dyno tune just to make 12whp

Don't forget a good set of tires. All the power in the world wont matter if you can't hook up. Last summer when we went to the track I was spinning the tires way past the 60' mark. Next season will be a different. I'm glad you posted about the pulleys because that was a thought I had also.
