Unorthodox Underdrive Pulleys

Adding to the ongoing wish-list for my 2007 Si coupe, I came across a set of lightweight underdrive pulleys for it. Anything that reduces extra spinning mass is a winner in my book.

The manufacturer claims:
  • Each set comes with a crank pulley and alternator pulley
  • 4-8 hp gain (depending on application) plus torque gains across the entire RPM ranges
  • Better throttle response
  • Smoother engine operation (each pulley is engineered to exacting standards for weight distribution)
  • Small underdrive (10 to 15%) on the crank pulley to further improve power output
  • Accessories (like alternator) still maintain factory spec output
I could live with getting another 5 or 6 horsepower, plus, there's the bling facter:
