    :no: not worth it

    none of them are worth it

    underdrive pulleys suck ass

    they dont give shit for power gains

    they harm the accesories that you underdrive (alternator etc)

    they do not have harmonic dampeners in them so they put added vibrational stress on the engine causing it to basicly shake itself to death

    more power can be gained for free by simply removing the power steering and AC

    doesnt have a harmonic dampener

    will result in higher vibration in the engine

    and its not a stock part

    its the part they use for N1 racing

    those engines only have to last as long as the race is

    so for them HP is more important than lifespan
