Default Pulley set

I got a march vbelt pulley set with optional alternator pulley today. Im really excited to get this installed on my next day off. The site claims 12 to 15 rwhp gain so we will see. I will keep you guys updated to those who are interested in doing this mod!!!

That seems like a bit of an exaggerated number for the RWHP gains but I'm curious to see what you think after a test drive.

yea i can feel a good difference but i also did my electric fan at the same time so i would say if you did both these mods you would be happy with the difference i had about 70 in the fan and 75 in the pullys used so not too bad

Why v-belt? I see you have a 97, where's the serpetine belt? How much did it cost for the pulley's?
