Sr underprive pulleys

Hi guys trying to keep my car as stock as possible , but these are going for $125 and I feel like that's a decent price, any have these? Do you recommend for it bone stock 2v? How hard is it for diy? Also any real gains? Any stress on the car whatsoever? Thanks in advance!

alecas447 - Good question here. I've had them on a 2V previously and I thought that they were great for the money and I definitely felt something on the butt dyno.

I tend to let customers do the talking here so you can get a better idea here's a pair of average reviews on them just so you know I'm not showing you every positive one.

One of the downsides about owning our cars is that when we start to modify them we expect to feel a night and day difference when installing any parts. I was the same way with my 2008 and I think the reviews above are from guys that have extensive mods and installed these, rather than going from bone stock to pulleyd.

Check out this review below. Being said from personal experience I think they really helped based on the fact that I installed them before other mods just so I could "feel" the difference. They'll definitely help through the power band. I'd suggest them and the install isn't all that bad at all ( Pulley Install Guide )

They help but there are better mods for the same amount of money.. I have Pullies but they are really just for looks..
Get a throttle body/plenum or gears

Unless those are balanced and aren't the piggy back type you should steer clear of them. Get real ones like the steeda type. They are actually made correctly and replace the pulley or crank pulley like they should.

Which pullies you have? My intake is stock so a throttle body would pointless, and I would need a tune plus labor which would put me at almost 1k. I'm really just looking for maybe 5rwhp for under 200 if possible

Thanks, what are the gains? On a stock car, and have no plans for boost, if anything I'm going for all motor eventually .

I wouldn't really call it gains. The power has been there. I guess it kinda relieves some parasitic drag on the accessory drive.
I haven't looked at the price of the summit TB and plenum combo recently but it's around 250 and would yield around 5 rwhp for their combo. Maybe a tad more when you get a tune. The summit TB and plenum is made by trick flow. Your stock plastic intake manifold will handle way more than the plenum and TB will give you so don't worry about that.

I have the steeda pullies... And even with a stock intake it's gonna be better than the pullies.

The stock intake is just as good as a cold air intake, save the money and install it yourself.. The throttle body install takes like 30min to an hour tops, and that sounds better plus gives you a bigger bump then the pullies would

I would either get gears, throttle body/plenum (BBK 73mm) or an off road mid pipe (X or H). You'll gain more from them then pullies no doubt

Bbk is another one most members here avoid. They aren't bad. But there's better out there for the money. Many reviews on AM for BBKs plenum TB thing is that the butterfly sticks open or doesn't close.

I just couldn't justify getting the pullies. It's not a part your gonna install and immediately just think wow what a difference..

Gears will make it feel like a whole new car..

Tb/plenum you will notice a difference in both sound and throttle response..

If your manual get a short throw shifter..

Or suspension mods, lowering springs, subframes..

I do roll racing mostly at the strip so gears won't exactly help , I won't be doing suspension yet, I want to do that all at the same time

Gears won't matter tune or not.. I ran those mods without a tune. Hell I didn't get a tune until i cammed my car.

I roll race a lot too, and I will walk a car that's not geared...

Hell I roll and digged raced a 15' GT and beat it.. I'm 10x the driver he is which is why I beat him but off the line with his stock gears and street tires I left him.

Gears should be the first mod if exhaust is already done

I have exhaust and tires, don't our cars need a tune with gears, to calibrate the speedo or something?

Your biggest hp gain per buck on a stock car is saving the 200 this month adding 200 more next month and buying a sct tuner - real world 30+ whp depending on the tune plus lots of quality of life improvements like speed limiter delete, gear calibration, rpm limiters, idle rtc etc

Isn't sct made by bama or something? Also aren't dyno tunes better than canned tunes?

No, Sct is the brand of the device. Think of sct as Apple and then the x4 as an iPod touch. Then think of bama steeda and mpt as artists who you out on the iPod.

And regarding the dyno tune not necessarily. The tune will only be as good as the tuner. Nothing wrong with a datalogged email tune

My car is tuned by MPT.. And my speedo was off for 6 months until I got a tuner to fix it.. I just downloaded a speedo app to let me know how fast I was going..

You have exhaust, so get the gears, save up and get the tuner, then pullies should be something you do if you have extra money to blow. Because you won't notice any gains hardly at all

I really just wanted something simple that I can do like the pullies, but I might do throttle body, as for gears I always tho I would do 3.73, just don't know what brand to go with

You can typically buy the sct directly from one of the tuning companies with their tune loaded on it. I wouldn't roll with the sct tune personally

Tuner holds a bunch. One from bama comes with 3 but the 93 performance tune gives most gaines

Go 4.10 when you do gears.. I went 3.73 and regret it...

Ford racing is the only brand of gears you should get.

The sct tuner comes preloaded with basically nothing except able to calibrate speedo, mess with timing and other small stuff..

I wouldn't waste money on the pullies, it will feel like you didn't even do anything to it.. The gears will make it feel like a completely new car..

Gotta do 2 things to make yourself fast.. Be able to bring lots of air into the engine and be able to let it flow out good as well.. Which is why forced induction cars are so fast they are forcing tons of air into the engine..

If you were boosting your car or building it for a 1/2 mile or standing mile race I would understand keeping your stock gear ratio, but there is a reason Mach 1's and new GT's come with the option of 3:55 or 3:73 gears

Really ? I tho higher gear ratios were better for 1/4 on contrast to rolling
