are pullies worth it?

I am running out of mods to do to my mustang. (besides a power adder that costs $4000, headers where I have to raise my engine, & my suspension which is coming in the mail. I was wondering "are pullies really worth it?")

trust me if I didn't live in CA I would buy a turbo instead of a sc. I am just gonna wait for the prices to drop like $1200 in about 3 years. Then the people that have the 05's will be getting bent over for them. Do you think I could take off a tenth in the quarter with them? Also what brand?

they are worth it as far as a bolt on goes... if you upgrade to a SC it will hurt you though.

As has been mentioned - if your heading towards a SC then do not bother with the pullies :hammer:

However, if you do decide to get a set, stay with a set that has the harmonic balancer built into them (like the Steedas), stay away from the piggy-back style - you will have headaches with them.

Have fun

How much for the pullies? I will get them. I am waiting for the superchargers to drop in price.

Pulleys are a nice little mod that is not that expensive. But like mentioned above make sure they are not piggyback style. Steeda makes one as does March. But be careful if you order from March. They also have pulleys that are piggybacked. Marchs look killer in the polished pieces.

And if you do get the Vortech for your car you are going to need a tune. The Predator will not be able to do the job for you.

Underdrive pullies are worth it as long as you dont buy into the 15 HP gain. You will see about 4 to 8 HP which for a 94-98 is a nice amount of gain for 70-80 bucks For 99= they tend to be about double the price but then again at $20 a HP that is not to bad

I would look for the cheapest price I really dont think one is really better than the other. I have MAC UDP's and could not be happier

I bought a set of ASP pullies and felt a power increase. It's a good mod for the price, and if you keep your stock ones you won't have to worry about replcing them when you go blown.

There are no best pullies. They are are pretty much the same as long as you go with one of the name brands. I paid around $70-80 for my MAC UDP. I bought mine from www.the-power-source.com The shop is like 20 min from my house so I picked them up.

Just make sure they are not piggyback style. I think Steeda are the best!

yeah

My dads favorite mod was his pullies, I didn't notice mine too much but they say that it takes a while for your car to adjust...can anyone confirm this? Also they say when you take it off you'll notice a big difference.

You guys get stuff for cheap! I hate reading on here that your guys get pullies for <100 bucks when I paid almost 300 for my crank pully and such. However, when I bought my crank pully everyone was talking about harmonic balancer this and that but I've never had a problem and I've had mine for a long long time. I know people who have had them for 150k miles and never had a problem. Harmonic balancer = weight

I have ASPs, and I noticed that only one other person mentioned them though several swore by Steeda's UDPulleys, from all I have heard Steeda's pulleys are made by ASP, and of course they cost more than ASPs. Steeda is a lot like Sears, though they do make a very few things, most things they buy already made from other manufacturers, have them put their name on it and mark the price up a bit higher. Don't get me wrong, I like Steeda stuff too, I have a lot of their billet aluminum dress up stuff, and a few other things.

What doesnt' adjust? The steeda timing adjuster most certainly can adjust your timing, I have one, I had to set it back to zero when I got my chip though.
