By far the easiest Mod I've done to the car. I jacked the car up, took the wheel off, took the inner fender liner out, and the crank pulley is right there in your face. 5 bolts and it drops right off the car. Threw the new one on and done. I'd say the hardest part was getting the floor jack under the car.
As far as any gains, 1st and 2nd gear rev out so fast now. 3rd is a little faster, then 4th and 5th or about the same. I've only put about 8 miles on it but so far it feels like it was worth it. No extra vibrations or anything like that. It sounds the same. I can't wait to see how the it pulls with the new clutch and single mass flywheel. I'd recommend this to anyone.
JW, did you get the underdrive one or just the lightweight one?
im thinking about getting one but don't want to underdrive the accessories, and im not sure if the other one is going to make any difference
Mine is just light weight. No under drive.
As far as performance like I stated above 1st and 2nd feel so much better. The car rips off the line now. 3rd is a little better and 4th and 5th feel about same. I like it a lot.
