I would think quicker if anything, but more than likely you can just feel the engine not working as hard

if you think about it, it's not gonna raise top speed, there still is the Govna'. these pullies are a fraction of the weight and size of the old ones which free up power that the engine isn't wasting trying to turn them before, so in essense it would allow the engine to produce the desired effect of getting up to speed quicker.

just as karpe was saying, it reduces the power loss

Did you do just the crankshaft pulley? I figure when I get around to doing my pulleys, I'm just gonna do all three, that way it's done and out of the way.
