unorthodox pulley kit

Does anyone in this forum have them or have any info's on how well they perform. I heard 12 to 15 horses to the wheel. Which is pretty damn good.

Not quite sure the exact numbers. But I wouldn't be surprised if they threw down 8 to the wheels on the GT, maybe more on the GTS.

really, just about everything shortens engine life. i have the AEM pulley but i dont think that it gives 12 hp however you can really feel the difference with it on, especially in acceleration. thumbsup

a kid told me that celicas handle like crap... i laughed

You will not see those gains from an Alternator pulley. We are mainly talkng about the crank pulley. The crank is where you will se all those gains, then the accessories (alt, water pump) just work together to add that extra few.

Are they any good, cause I heard that AEM doesnt shorten the Engine life like the SS pulleys, but I also read that the SS pulleys give more horsepower than the AEM ones, is that true?

the AEM will not hurt it, because it's only an alternater pulley...
those UR replace more and the crank pulley, which the engine wasn't built for an aftermarket.

the ultra SS comes with a crank, alternator, water pump pulley, and you have to buy a shorter belt. the AEM is just the alternator but it comes with a belt.
