    Okie dokie then...

    Still researching potential modifications/additions and am interested in lightweight crank/alt/wp pullies.

    I need the crash course...pros, cons. I understand the benefits, because everyone *selling* them pimps the benefits like crazy. What I need from the TW folks are the potential drawbacks/problems/disasters/risks/etc. of going to a lightweight pulley set.

    Thanks in advance.

    There are light weight and under driven pulleys. If your looking for some cheap HP, but less torque the light weight ones make sense and its what I'd recommend, but on the flip side...

    I had underdriven pulleys on my mustang and it complemented other mods I had.

    Do a search on here and other sites...guys are running them in the prerunners.
