    I think Overdrive is the company, they are just a pully kit like any other one I think.

    Overdrive WOULD be good for a stereo comp car's alternator, but those are in fact UNDERDRIVE pulley's.

    Dumbasses.

    Right. It's further evident since he's claiming a 10-15 hp gain.

    From ebay@tuningdepot.com Fri Aug 1 10:30:37 2003:

    OBX calls them OVERDRIVE hence we can't call them UNDERDRIVE otherwise
    we

    Yeah, let's order some parts that not only will NOT give us any HP, but will cause our crank bearings to fail within 15K miles due to harmonic vibrations that are caused by our super cool way overpriced underdrive pulley that lacks a harmonic balancer!

    Um, those pulley's only replace the pulleys physically ON the alternator and power steering pump. The harmonics of an engine are controlled on the crank dampner, which isn't touched with this kit...

    Who's calling who a dumbass here? Well, me calling you one, for one. :p


    [edit]Just to prove a point, the only company I know of offhand that replaces the crank pully is Unorthodox Racing. I would stay away from their crank pulley's like the plague[/edit]

    OBX does indeed call them "Over Drive" pulleys on their website.

    They list some crank pulleys as part of their product line.

    And if you click on "Intake Manifolds" on their site, it takes you to their turbo manifold section. :lol:

    Dumbasses. :)
