UR pullies?

Unorthodox Racing Pulleys?
Are these the best pulleys to free up hp?

I saw a post saying they can be funky if not installed right? I'm pretty sure performance toyota would do an alright job, so would you guys recommend UR pulleys ?

They are lighter, so less rotational mass, thus more effectice hp.
Problem appears to be they don't have a harmonic balancer so vibrations are not absorbed but rather carried on to your engine, creating more wear

ditto. i've never met anyone with ur pulleys that actually liked them. all i hear are complaints.

but they DO provide the best gains (for pulleys)...so you yourself have to balance out what your priorities are.

personally, my #1 priority is keeping my engine alive & keeping resale on my celica. so that means i'm into less wear on my celica and therefore not into ur pulleys.

extra horses are great--but not at the risk of damaging your car.
