Try disconnecting the battery and for a few mins and see if it learns the idle again

Since these pulleys under drive, you may have a poorly charging alternator or battery which is being exposed by the under driven accessory.

Sounds like you may not have the crank pulley on all the way. The car will run bad if that happens.

Did you put the stock bolt back in or did you leave our 'starter' bolt in?

The pickup wheel for the crank sensor is behind the bottom pulley. If the pulley is not on all the way, the wheel wont line up with the sensor and the car will not run well.

Best Regards,

TJ

Can slow throttle response be caused by dirty throttle body also?

Go to O'Reilly auto parts and get CRC throttle body and air intake cleaner, it worked great. And CRC makes a whole line of engine cleaning parts! Check em out!

I also ran a can of sea foam through mine after I cleaned the throttle body. It made mine Run a lot smoother

Finally had time to take mine apart this evening. Took the throttle body off and cleaned it. Man was it dirty. Took awhile to clean it with throttle body cleaner.

Try cleaning the throttle body or check your MAF sensor ! One of my buddies just installed the same pulleys on his 05GT and he feels the difference! You should like them bro
