Pulley

So I've seen and heard people talking about how much a pulley helped them in increase of power, but what's the best pulley out there for the M3? My other question is why didn't BMW make such pulley to begin with, stock?

I know It's a though question but I want to pull the trigger on one and don't know what to get.

Thanks,

BMW does make a good pulley, they also make good DME's, exhaust, intakes, etc yet we still mod

Not sure there is one pulley better than another. All the same basic principles. The AA is double belted, Dinan gives you the warranty, Rogue seems to last, so I don't know which is best, personal taste and price I guess

The smaller pulley only offers a "benefit" for markets without "efficient Dynamics" which is the USA and ?.

I don't know if it's just my imagination, but my pulley upgrade has changed my steering a tad bit.

It feels kind of tighter when turning. I think it feels that way mostly at slower speeds.

It's nothing serious enough to really complain about, but I still feel something different.

I have the AA pulley, which includes the correct version of the double-sided belt.

How much did that cost you and would you recommend a Pulley in general?
My car is feeling really weird right now but I think I just need a clean service and new tires. BMW falls out of tune fast.

It's funny that you ask, because I've changed so much since the time I first started planning out my mods (I'm not as serious about modding anymore).

If you're looking to do the entire works of mods for your M3, then I guess it would be a good idea to go with a pulley, as well.

If you're just looking to go with a few minor mods, such as a rear exhaust & filter, then I wouldn't worry about getting a pulley.

This is just my opinion.

I've heard/read that the Rogue Engineering pulley is the best value or bang for your buck. PM Jesal@Project 808

Spinning slower will tighten steering slightly, something I've always veiwed as a benefit with UDPs.

OP: The Rogue setups have been very popular, we've installed a number of them here in our facility.

The AA and Evosport Pulleys are also pretty solid. Can't go wrong with Rogue Either
