All the pulleys are the same. There is no best one. If you are concerned about your warranty go with Dinan.

Click on any of the links in this post . That should provide some background, from a seller perspective.

The Dyno DB has consistently shown an increase with a pulley--nothing extreme--but in line with what's claimed more or less. A pulley kit just reduces parasitic drag on the engine, typically through reduced pulley mass and by changing the size of the pulley. The impact is some improvement in power: an analogy would be turning off the A/C. A/C takes away engine power to run; turn it off, viola, reduced drag. (Not a perfect analogy, but it probably will suffice.)

I think stock pulley is good. Plus if you look at the Dinan one they claim 11 Hp at 8,4000 RPM but so what?? Your HP is already dropping by that point, and why do you need 11 HP at 8,400? I barely hit that, and if I do it's just a split second before changing gears.
