pulleys

Before everybody starts putting me down I have read many of the threads that were posted about pulleys. But I have not yet to find which is reliable.
I guess all of them put out or frees same amount of power, so from that perspective I understand, but don't want slipping or breaking while going over 300km/h!! when me and my buddies go and RUN, we average over 200km/h, so I don't want to have problems.

Any advice will be appreciated!!
Thanks!

I have also made many studies. and I have found my way to Rouge.

I believe they have the most effective pulley system and I think the only downside is maybe a heavier steering on low speeds. But I feel that is normal for a pulley upgrade.

We've had success with AA and EvoSport, both reliable products for your car. The advantage to AA is that they include the double walled ribbed belt which IMO is important for longevity when swapping out the pulleys.

+1, all pulleys currently on the market have a 15% reduction.

You can't go wrong with the RE pulleys, belt replacement is going to be a concern when the time comes - especially when you're in Taiwan. Belts used on the Rogue versions are readily avaialble at any auto parts supply houses.

RE doesn't supply the new double sided belts?

The RE pulleys do not require a double sided belt, they can be sourced at any auto supply house if replacement is needed.

How heavy does the steering get? Is it present to the same degree with all pulleys?

Very very little, almost can't feel the difference.
