I agree. Theyre pretty simple to install too. After that, go for gears.

Re: Mods

gear will not give you any hp, just better acceleration off the line

Ya I wanted to eventually do that when I get the money. Because it's worth the money. I'm just wondering isnt it kind of hard on the engine and shorten the life of the engine?

If you continue the required matinence on a motor the mods should not shorten the life of a motor.

Depends on what shot of nitrious you run. The bigger the shot the more strain you put on it. But if you run a small shot it shouldn't create any problems.

Remember that if you plan to do a supercharger down the line the pulley swap will be a waste of money.

I will agree with 05bluestang. Gears are a great improvement the driveshaft will link it all up tighter. Now big money will be in cams heads intake manifold. I am doing the trick flow conversion this winter 2011. Street heat intake, twisted wedge heads with stage 2 cams, and 75 mm throttle body. All next winter.
