Macht Schnell Pulley or Rogue Engineering Pulley??

Hey fellas, I'm going to order one or the other today and was wondering which one you guys prefer? I've read that they are basically the same. The only "mod" i have so far is the MS filter so I was leaning towards just sticking with the MS pulley as well. ANY differences between the two worth mentioning? I can get the RE for $10 cheaper if that makes a diff

Thanks in advance

I like doing same brand stuff on my cars, well actually on pretty everything. I like to stick with one brand, not that it really matters, but seems "cleaner" in my mind. That's all I have to say about that

FWIW, I just installed the Turner pulley kit this weekend and like it...

As for what jmflukeiii said - I'm the opposite. I'd rather have the best of each individual piece. My take on it is, each parts company is going to have something they're better at. Just because a company make a great air filter doesn't automatically transfer to their pulley kit. Just sayin'.

Good point as well. It's probably more of an image in my mind that I have of all matching parts and whatnot, and not necessarily based on performance. But its why I do all Dinan on a BMW; I know all their parts are good parts and all of it as a whole is designed to work well together.

I don't think you can go wrong with either. So I'd say just go for whichever is cheaper.

is there a reason why you decided to go back to stock?

Dinan has the best design. You could see how the pulley is actually different ly ribbed on each side. Not the same % of being underdriven per accessory. It is the best design. Some other kits have issues with belt problems in cold weather on the powersteering side. Dinan is the best and has no issues. Plus its dealer friendly. I had a different brand kit that was nothing but a problemand the car would struggle to turn at low speeds and in the cold. Hope this helps.

All S65 UDPs on the market underdrive the water pump, but are within safe levels both on and off the track.
