Adjustable cam gears. How much do they Help?

I have heard that putting som adjustable cam gears help quite a bit. is this true? Or is this something that is only needed after doing certain mods?

I was also woundering what anyone knows about the underdrive pullies. I have heard they can cause problems with the harmonic balancer and may not be a good purchase if you want the car to last a while? Dont know much about the UDP so thats why i am asking,.

I have both UPD and a Cam Gear. I noticed a bit more response, and the top end feels like it pulls hard to redline and wants to keep going beyond fuel cut. I did these along with an ORP though, so I dunno...cant say on each individually, but as a pkg. it brought new life to my car!

i can say that the UDP definatley helps in the lower rpms, and it definatley helps with response....if you get the AEM UDP, it is on the alternator, and therefore does not mess with the harmonic balancer.
