Trial headder 840

C-one crank pulley 170

1010 close enough!


assuming you already have I/E

if not get AEM CAI/TRD exhaust

DONT BUY THE JET CHIP!!! or any chip for that matter unless it taps into the 02 sensor.

on obdII cars the 02 sensor is god and even if you modify the MAF sensor, TPS sensor, and other sensors our ecu will revert back to stock since the 02 sensor(S) read differently.
--taken from Griffin at NCorg.

so if you want to make or gain hp with a chip it will need to tie into these sensors.

LIES! Lies, I tell you. AEM pulleys are a waste of money. I have a set and they didn't do jack according to the dyno. Even though I have a Honda engine, I doubt you'll see much difference if you install them in yours.

Unortho Racing includes a crank pulley, where you'll get most of your power in a lightweight pulley set-up. If you can find some place that sells ONLY the Unortho crank pulley in the set (not the complete $350 set), you'll be getting a good deal.
