To emulate an OEM appearance of the other pulleys used within the system. Here's what you'll be seeing when the hood is opened:



Keep in mind this is with the fan shroud removed and light down under. A black-finished pulley will not be crying for much attention down there.

Colors are simply irrelevant when it comes to pulleys.

I haven't noticed that much of a difference, but I'm assured that I will when I modify my exhaust. More than likely, I'm going with an x-pipe in the next month or so. Hopefully I'll see some major gains when these two are paired.
