How much would it cost for someone to install an AEM pulley in my 2002 GT?

I think it's pretty easy to do it yourself

$60 to $100 would be my guess, any where from an half hour to an hour depending on the shop. I would not try to do that myself, unless you have access to a garage with all the fixins. Where talkin impact wrench here.

You can still do it yourself. I have a 75 lb. impact wrench, and I couldn't get the stock pulley off, so I just took it to an Autozone and they used some shitty electric impact wrench to take it off. They even put the new one back on for me.

Make sure your socket/wrench seats properly on the lower alternator bolt. There is another pulley right there that can be in the way. Mine wouldn't budge and I ended up rounding it off.
