Crank pulleys

After searching many local shops here in wpb Florida ( no places to get installs done). And being quoted 400+ at the shops I did find. I decided to say screw it and do it myself.

So glad I did, the install is so straight forward and as long as you have all the tools is a real straight forward job.

I am now full bolt on ( elvolve tune/ catless xipipe/ meisterschaft gt/ intake / and now pulleys. My real question is why out of all of the bolt on do I feel this the most ? Is it because the hp/torque gain on the lower Rpms? Having the car dynoed Friday and can't wait to see the overall numbers

Pulley is easy and you can find full diy with pictures posted. Filter was my first mod. Pulley second. X pipe third. Meth tune 4th. Intake 5th. Would consider 4.10 diff. If funds allow one day, used centrifugal supercharger.

I had the turner pulley on my 09, and honestly couldn't feel a difference before and after. maybe one brand is better than the next but still not looking to buy one for my 08 just yet.

I had them and took off. Had issues with the power steering at low speeds and also turning the wheel quickly side to side. Doesn't make sense to me to cause drive ability issues with the car for an imperceivable amount of power.

I have the ones from Dinan because of the warranty and its the only company i trusted for the pulleys because of the whole power steering thing. I love mine and i can feel them a lot. Im fully bolt on modded and just dynoed in at 419 to the wheels and everything runs great.

What kind of dyno gave you 419 rwhp? Not a dynojet in SAE.

No chance you're 419 to the wheel. Its almost impossible to make 400 wheel NA.

post a dyno sheet as proof.
