Pulleys

Hey, I was browsing and came across these:

What exactly are they supposed to do? I'm guessing they are just the things that the belts turn on, and they are better than the stock ones? Comes with replacement belts too. Do they add any hp, or just put more to the wheels? How much? Are they worth the money?

:2cents: they are usualy lighter and reduce the stress/strain placed on the engine by running the accesories such as ac and power steering. they are also supposed to "free up" some power at the crank pulley but i'd say that any gains you'd see would be in relation to what other complimenting mods you've done. (exhaust,intake,valvetrain)

Well I plan on getting an AEM intake sometime very soon, and I'd be able to afford these when I get paid on friday. Or do you think I should save that 170 bucks and wait one more check and then get some dc sports headers?

How is that even a question. Buy those when the more important performance mods are done. intake, headers, exhaust, etc. They are more for appearance than anything else.

Oh how wrong you are. When I added the Unorthodox Ultra SS pulley set to my old Accord (turbo h22a) it GAINED nearly 17whp. You wont see that big of a difference on a N/A vehicle but still see a bigger gain than a few hp. On small Honda motors full pulley sets usually net between 8-15whp pending which vehicle.

Thats sounds alright. What would I get on an h22? Thats one of the larger honda engines...with 10-15hp gain at the wheels seams like a good mod to me.

Now can anyone tell me something about the quality of that particular kit? Or should I look at a different one?

AEM makes a DECENT kit...but it doesnt compare to the gains of the Unorthodox set. With a full AEM set on a N/A h22a you'll see no more than 6-8whp.

Do you have link to the Unorthodox kit? Does it cost more than the AEM?
