OK gang, here goes yet another log onto this topic. I ran a very brief precis by him on our rather lively debate. He is familiar with the Dinan article and feels that there could be an issue at around 8000 RPM with the inline six. He did re-state that the pulleys would be just fine on our cars. They would definitely help with water pump cavitation at extended RPM usages.

He also mentioned that a couple of cars he knows about have over 2000 road racing miles on them without effect, and his own car has had them for nearly all of its current life.

I'll ask him how many miles are on his car and will post.

As for myself, I'm going to stick those babies on.

guess i'm just a wussy, but i'm staying away from the pullies. i've spoke to some users and they were not impressed. some felt it was almost a waste of money. you could get the same hp/tq increase by advancing your timing, according to the #'s. (2-3hp)

but hey, if you guys want em, go for it and enjoy! :cool:

I was thinking of not advancing my timing, just so I don't have to spend the money of running higher octane fuel. Not sure of what I'm going to do in the end though....

Oh, I agree, you could get the same amount of increase by upping the timing. But I'm thinking about doing all the tricks people have been using so far: increase the timing, Stromung exhaust, pulleys, PRI CAI. This ought give me a little more punch (I'm guessing 8-12 HP at the wheels) and distinguish my car from the ONE other SE I've seen in my area! Nah, mostly because I can, I want to tinker around with my ride. My only planned external mods are rims/tires, I'm going for the sleeper mode!

<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>I see your point and I agree with your point but I look at it this way also your gonna spend about $200 to $250 for the pulley's but now just imagine how much you're gonna spend on gas once you advance your timing on the gas......

Plus you can do both advance the timing and get the pulley's for the extra added horse power,,,,Right????

A guy in my local car club bought Unorthadox pullies for his DSM car. He had to take them off because he couldn't get the belts to stop slipping with them installed. I don't know if they were anodized incorrectly or what, but he wasn't impressed with them at all.

well maybe if he would have gotten the correct serpentine 4cog belts for them that would not have happened, I suggest if you buy the 4-pulley set, to buy from Stillen and get both the set and the belts fromt them. The actual amount of power dyno proven by the pulleys is between 6-8hp on almost stock cars and aroun 8-12hp on modded cars(turbo, etc). The people that have done this have been very happy with the added performance and all the other benefits like(engine running cooler, lowers water temp by 20 degrees celsius or something like that). :)

Got another answer from Mike K., his (non-b15) ride has over 30,000 miles with what he thinks 600 dyno pulls and lots of hard running. I guess that answers the durability question for me since I have no intention of running 600 dyno pulls and pretty keep the hard running to occasional bursts around town, plus the occasional track day every couple of months.

I hadn't heard of the belts slipping. I'll keep an ear out for that phenomenon and let everyone know if the pulleys are a major PITA. Although, DarkSide hasn't said anything about that, and he's the one who's had them on the longest. Heck, he might be the only one with them on at this forum!

At the very least, I will ensure that the timing is at 13 degrees so as to maximize my stock level of tune. Living in California, super U gas is already over $2.00 per, and it's only going to get higher... I can't afford to run the timing too high.

Holy....gas is pretty high in Cali, thank god I'm not there right now! Being in VA, it's about $1.60 on the average for 92-93 octane. Advancing the timing seems far away for me at the rate of the gas prices shooting up for the spring/summer.

Damn Josh, I was stationed out there about almost two years ago, and gas wasn't that friggin high, probably a dollar-fifty for 87! Ahh....gas is just going to go up and up...

Yup, that's why I'm in no great hurry for cams, ECU, basically anything that may negatively alter the mileage. I'm sticking to boltons and keeping the right foot light. Everytime I think about lightin' 'em up at the onramp, I check my fillup log and decide it's all good to let that punk take off.

I'm hoping that the bolton mods will not adversely affect mileage. Any feedback on this?

With my mods, I'm getting from 26-30 mpg. I think that's pretty good, what do you think Larry? :)

is anybody else running rich? As in there is excessive black soot (unburned gas) on the exhaust pipes? I'm not sure what kind of mileage I am getting I think around 22 mpg. I do punch it a lot tho.
