Lightweight water pump pulley
Not sure if anyone has done this but I ordered a header recently and the person gifted me a pulley for a 08 focus so I decided to try it and it fit perfectly and as far as I can tell it feels a bit more responsive so yay me,it's a odd looking pulley and says "medieval" on it.

How long have you had it on?

Zuesskroph 07-13-2013 09:10 PM

A few hours.

Ladder812 07-13-2013 09:26 PM

How much of a difference?

Zuesskroph 07-13-2013 09:30 PM

It's not gonna make a huge difference but it does feel more responsive and it fit perfectly.

In what way is it more responsive

The pulley reduces weight and allow the pully to spin faster in turn allowing the crank to add 1-2hp and give a responsive feel.

So how is the Coolant temp and coolant pressure in the system.

unless you are on a horse you are not going to feel 1 HP, but it was free so might as well install it and still could be useful for reducing engine load

It didn't effect temps or pressure and in the low end it feels a bit more peppy and smooth
