they dont add hp, they get rid of the parastitic effects and free up hp to the wheels, i'd say from 2-5hp!

Exactly, he is the quote from CelicaStore for AEM Pulleys.

The pulley's lightweight 6061 T-6 billet aluminum construction reduces rotating weight and increases efficiency. All pulleys have a tooth profile that is guaranteed to match Original Equipment (O.E.) specifications, eliminating the chances of premature belt wear. Each Tru-Power pulley kit includes comprehensive instructions, performance belts and AEM decals

Exactly, cheap and good. However, go with AEM pulleys and no unorthodox pulleys. Unorthodox gives more power...but AEM is easier on your engine.

its a lot better, since they replace the water pump pulley, the crankshaft pulley with no harmonic balancer but frees up like 5 or 6 lbs of weight if not more and a alternator pulley, your taking off like 15 lbs or so, i think its too much, not sure, but your basically taking off a lot of weight and it lets the pulleys spin a lot faster, especially the crankshaft, but removing the harmonic balancer is only for hardcore racers, thats just my 2cents, but other than that, just buy the UR alternator pulley and water pump pulley, or AEM pulley, but dont get UR crankshaft pulley
