    Is there any difference between the us/jdm ITR crank pulley? Looking for one for my build. I've seen the jdm one on passwordjdm that say it weighs 5lbs but out of stock & the us one on a acura oem parts site cheaper & in stock. Anyone know?

    are you going to be using a light flywheel? is so i would go with the stock pulley to light of a weight on both sides can be a problem from what i understand hope that helps

    Yes i'm going to use a lightweight fly, but I was going to upgrade pulley but cannot afford another $300 on a fluidampr or ati harmonic res., so decided to go OEM but still want the option of p.s. or ac...ITR was the best option but wasn't sure if the jdm or itr were the same.

    So your saying, I should keep my beat up old gsr pulley because an ITR is too light & will affect balancing or something? I'm not too sure about that but either way i'm probably getting the bottomend balanced.

    Can we post a link where it says that you shouldn't lighten attachments on both ends of the crank? I can't see the reasoning behind that.

    This is just a guess, but it seems obvious that you should lighten both sides evenly. drop 4 lbs from the fly, drop four lbs from the crank pully. I have nothing but logic to back that up but you would want to attempt to keep the rotational mass somewhat balanced. OEM crank pulleys dont weigh a gazillion pounds because honda needed to rid themselves of a bunch of spare metal.

    i agree logically it would be correct to even the weight on both sides. any more input?
