ur pullys

im thinking about getting the ur pulley set, i know some people claim they can damage your engine but iv only read about one case where the owner stated that the pulley caused his oil pump to go.i spoke to my friend who is a certified toyota tech and asked him about this, turns out he has a celica gts on his rack right now with a blown oil pump. the car has no mods. apparently this is getting common, its his third blown pump. so there may be a flaw thumbsdown anyways i feel better about getting the pulley set now..what do you guys think.

I have the UR Pullys.

Have had them in for about 6 months now. That great I have no issues at all yet.

I personally wouldn't get either of them. The UR may show gains, but I wouldn't mess with an expensive engine unless the rumors and truths were cleared without a doubt in the favor of UR. I wouldn't take that risk otherwise. The AEM just doesn't seem to do much of anything for gains. An almost empty tank of gas will do just as good without my accessories slowing down.
