Are pullies really worth $199 or more

Tryna see which direction to go with mods. My SCT tuner is on its way from brenspeed and i wanna order something else. Thought about pullies like steeda or BBK but all claim to increase hp by 10-12. are they worth the money or better yet can anyone stand up and say they are worth the money and saw the difference in gains.

You're not gonna notice a huge seat of the pants gain with the pulleys. I'd put the money elsewhere unless you just want it.

Re: Are pullies really worth $199 or more

I had UDP's on my 00 GT, saw no difference...no seat of the pants difference....never had it on a dyno so I can't say yay or nay on actual power gains..

However, I can say they are not worth the money they are asking these days...like was stated, put that money elsewhere like gears where you can actually feel a change.

No.

Good thing you asked. if you really want to do them so you can say you have them, find a used set, most people that install them usually turn around and uninstall them and try to recoup their purchase.

Ehh UDPs are a waste of money IMO, minimal gains at that for work that, well just isn't worth it, there can be money well spent in other areas, invest in suspension mods as there is no question that they can only help.

I could tell a little difference after having UDPs installed. I didn't not dyno my car before the steed's. But with the steeda's as my only mod, my avg dyno was 278RWHP and 282RWTQ.
