Those with the AEM Alt. pulley...

I was just wondering how well they are working, as far as having problems. I want to get it, but I'm just afraid because of some of the stories I've heard, even though most of the problems I've heard of the owner put in the pulley themselves. I would have a shop do it.

Lol, I'd just like to hit lift eek What other mods do you have with the pulley?

I also have leds in my bumper lenses and in the headlights, these don't put any more strain on the alt. do they?
