They do...but they are bad news I hear!! AEM is just one pulley, its for the altenator. It'll give you MAYBE 1 or 2whp. Thats it. UOP comes with three, but its hard as hell on your engine!! I think everyone here would agree. AEM is a good cheap mod though. Do a search youll find all kinds of info on this topic!

Ur pullies are a big topic of debate here. Some say they are hard on the engine and lead to problems and faster wear. Others say they are fine and cause no extra damage as long as they installed properly. Ive only heard of 2 poeple with problems. On ones car he had them installed wrong. And on the other car his oil pump blew but celi's are known for faulty pumps. But still i wouldnt take a risk and get the AEM alternator pullie. This works by underdriving the pullie. So if you plan on putting in a system i would not install them.

Yeah, AEM is the best of the two, Urtho gives better gains, but its not really worth it on the engine. I would rather have quality over quantity. thumbsup

I bought the AEM and the gains were minimal, so I bought the Unorthodox Crank and Alt. for my GT and it is awesome. The car pulles a lot better at the top of the gears. Its like an extra boost. Ive done Exhaust, Intake, Header, and Grounding Wires. Nextr to the exhaust, i was most impressed with the pulleys.

crank is the easiest,then water pump.then altinator,make sure you oil the back of the crank pulley.
and after you take your pulley off can you check to see if it has balancing holes in it (something i'm trying to figure out, let me know)
and the ur pulleys feel nice,not like no exhaust change,but more like a cold air, more or less.
good luck
