well the only "real" pulley that will get you power is the under drive crank pulley. Now the other ones are lighter and everything so they might get you like 1hp or something like. Now the tuner is a great thing to have and it works even better when you have other mods to go along withit.

I think the crank pulley should be the first mod anyone does. You can feel it and it helps MPGs.

I just installed a full set- crank, water pump, alt, idler, tensioner. A new how-to will be posted soon. it should help whether installing 1 or 5 of the pulleys.
