Under drive pulleys?

So, I read that under drive pulleys are a good upgrade, but I don't see any anywhere for a v6. Any idea where I could find some?

Sorry, if the truth disappoints you. The under drive pulley will gain you one hp on average. Unless you are the type of person who jumps off the line. Then you will get all 8 hp. This is known as market hp.(I have explained mh in more detail) I own one and please do not think of me as a hypocrite. I would rather you know the truth before you buy one.

So in the article it claimed 1-3 mpg gain and increased hp and torque throughout the rpms. It also called them gears part two :p and you are saying they aren't worth it at all?

It will save you more gas mileage on the interstate. If you want it, just get it. You will always wonder what if if you do not.

Pretty much UDs just let your engine rev up faster!.. I've got them on my '04 GT and didn't notice a big difference!.. But every little bit helps in my opinion!..
