|Zuesskroph||Thanks,in honesty you more than likely wont see it on the dyno at all without all the pulleys|

|MG_MK3||Happy that pulley worked out for you... I would like to see dyno runs with the stock one and the lightweight one. Might be interesting...|

|ChalupaJones||There definitely isn't anything that's advertised as being made for our cars. I've been looking for a couple days.|

My issue with this whole thread is still unanswered.
If this gear is part of a set.... was it included with a crank pulley? How much did you underdrive the waterpump?? Or did you over drive it if it included an oversized crank pulley originally?
Are you forcing cavitation and overrevved parts? Are you underspinning a critical part of your engine's cooling system?
If you don't know... you really should find out before you are stuck on the side of the road with a voided warranty.

|amc49||Not against underdrive pulleys at all. We used to make our own for the AMC drag engines until Traco Engineering (the Trans Am guys) stepped up to make some up. I even cut off every other water pump impeller blade to make a setup that cooled fine and quick at the strip but also made 20+ hp over 6000 rpm. The Booth-Arons Gremlin at the time claimed 26 hp on their 356 inch motors. It can be done but as a system, and a percentage of your size motor's output. You get no raging numbers from small inch motors, only small bits, of course they all add up. One pulley brings something to the table but you cannot feel it by itself. Human optimism is 20% of all dyno increases.|
