I've been talking to Louie and I guess he got a response from ASP and there is a minor difference between the older and newer balancer, but the guy thinks it will still work fine. Won't know for sure until someone tries it though. I'm going to call him later this week and as long as there's no chance of any damage I'll buy the pulley and try it out.

I wouldn't risk it, there were problems w/ the original ASP pulley's which caused engine failures if I remember correctly. They were eventually resolved but I wouldn't want to be the guinea pig here. Another thing to note is the newer 4.7 has a different crankshaft and harmonic damper than the older one's. There is certainly a reason dodge changed them instead of reusing the crank and damper from the old motor. If they didn't design the pulley specifically for the new 4.7 then I wouldn't put it on it.

Just trying to give you all the info, I wouldn't put it on my truck. The gains aren't worth the risk of a messed up motor.

I understand and appreciate it.

He said the hub on it is 0.005" smaller diameter than the oem part, but he thinks it will still seal against the front main seal. He said other than that it looks the same. Not sure why dodge would change it by 0.005", doesn't seem like it'd even be something noticeable.

I want to do it, but now you got me worried. What problems did they have and was it with the 4.7L?

Anyone have experience with ASP or their quality/reputation?

Well I have the revised pulley on my 3.7, it's the same pulley as the one for the first generation 4.7. I haven't had any issues with it, quality, it's a pulley similar to the stock one, just underdrive to put less strain on the motor driving accessories which allows more power to the wheels.

The concern I have is what can happen if a harmonic damper/balancer/pulley is not right for the motor http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harmonic_balancer. I don't know how many parts the old 4.7 shares w/ the newer one, but looking at the parts site the cranks and pulleys are different parts at different prices. That's why I'm raising the red flag here.
