What UD Pulley is the best?
 
Looking at under drive pulleys. Was curious whats best the FSWerks or the CFM?

None.
The make zero added/proven power increase.

Spend money on a tune instead.

Fswerks shows dyno charts with gains of 3.9hp and 2.4 torque, how is that Zero added gains? I had a UDP on my Probe GT it was a 5hp gain for very little money. Tune is in the works as well but that will come later. When ever you lighten something especially rotating mass it helps. Probably will go with the CFM since you get 2 lighter pulleys.

TUNE>PULLEYS. the tune makes it a whole new car. you arent gonna feel 4 hp. dont waste your money

Underdrive pulleys... [nono]

Tune... [clap]

I don't see how UDP plus a tune wouldn't add more? Every hp counts and so does every lb you take off the car.

Pulleys aren't much for HP gains. They more so free up the rotating mass making the engine Rev more freely

I have the massive under drive pulley kit and i felt an instant improvement in accelerating. For only $115 or so I would definitely recommend it. Don't hate on the UDP's until you try it!

It's about time I get an answer from someone that actually has a UDP. [thumb] thanks [thumb] I'll have to check out that kit too. I felt the same with the one on my 2nd Gen Probe GT. So far I'm leaning towards the CFM kit due to the 2 lightened pulleys that come in the kit.
