I have it, also quite a bit else from Underdog. I like the Pulley set, most are just satisfied with just the crank pulley. The weight difference was impressive the stock pulleys felt so much heavier than the billet aluminum. I gained some top end and the engine runs up to the 2k rpm mark a lot quicker. I also picked up around 2 more mpgs on my first two tanks... I pretty much tried to see how quickly I could run out of gas... i havent done a recent mpg calculation though. I found them to be really simple to install except for the crank pulley that was the biggest PITA, there is locktite on the bolts so you have to break em lose... and if you are like me 140lbs at 5'11 you might want to get some help. I got mine black so that no one can tell and so far no one can... even a few cocky ranger drivers in my town that are not on here. I tell them its all stock except for the exhaust and then I jsut blow them out of the water... kinda funny to see there face when I blow by them.

also try www.modbargains.com

since you already ordered the headers, you can look into a good cat back exhaust, Im not sure on this but I believe you can upgrade your intake manifold to a composite, just go to a local junk yard and look into newer rangers and pull off their intake manifolds. Also you can mold in a bigger TB for example one from an escape. You can also look into a good Cold Air intake, wont net you much but will help dress up the engine bay. If you really want to gain more power turbocharge or supercharge the sucker or cram nitrous down it, port and polish the heads. Also you can look into gearing, get a good limited slip which can also be found in a junk yard. Junk yards can be your friends
