hey guys. iknow some of you wanted to know what the results were oncei got my pulley. first off i 'd like to thank isaac. we met up at a yoshinoya parking lot and he delivered the AEM
pulley plus threw in a TRD License Plate
to cover the shipping cost (and i bunch of decals too). he reffered me to a guy who did a great job on installing the pulley and did it in about 45 min. i'd like to say that isaac is awesome and he goes above and beyond when it comes to us in the forum or in the ecelica store and we should give much respect for that. anyway, after i got the box all that was in it was one pulley wheel and a belt (our celicas only come with one pulley, unlike what some people have said or suggested). when i looked at the box it said "increases horse power, improves throttle, does not require to remove harminic something-something (i'm an idiot when it comes to cars), etc., etc." i didn't really expect al that much from the pulley onl y that it should do what it does...just free up a little hp because of the lighter wheel. besides, it's a $70 mod. well... after i took it out wheni got it installed i noticed RIGHT AWAY that it rev'd easier and the throttle was much better. considering i had an automatic it felt great. i took it out to the 170 hwy and i was going 80mph below 2700 rpm (normally it would be @3000 at that speed). basically it gave me a good jump and since i have an automaitc it's a blessing. of course i was thinking..there's that issue with the dimming lights. well night came and there was NO DIMMING OF LIGHTS. now some of you may not have the same results but i think possibly my battery, since it handles power windows, doors and a rear wiper, handled it well. i dunno. like i said i'm an idiot when it comes to cars. i can't really say how much horsepower it gave because i haven't dyno'd my car. but the acceleration and throttle was quite noticeable and for a 70 dollar mod it was worth it. i'm quite happy with the pulley and i suggest you all get it here at ecelica because i know isaac will take care of it to the best of his abilities.
now some of you have bougth the pulley and are wondering WTF i'm talking about since you felt no gain. well maybe it's my car and the mods i have. hmmm...well i have a 2000GT (automatic) with Injen Short Ram Intake
exhaust, and some brand new denso iridium plugs (don't know if that makes a difference). coursei use mobile 1 syn. oil with k&n per. gold filter and stock alloy wheels that might affect performance (then again maybe not). just wanted you guys to know what my results are with the pulley and what i have in the car when i got it installed. my verdict: it's a great affordable mod that does what it does. if you want 10-15 hp this is not the mod for you. but you want something reletivelty cheap with better throttle response and better acceleration then this mod is great.
