    Anyone have an idea if the NST Lite Pulleys (Crank/Alt/WP) affect the trucks performance while towing?

    I slightly remember reading something about the lessening of rotational mass will affect the trucks towing/crawling abilities.

    Anyone with these pulleys have time to comment?

    I have them installed and have had no negative experience with normal driving or towing... They allow the engine to rev faster and you will notice mostly faster throttle response.

    Changing pulleys has nothing to do with a lift kit... I see that you already have a 3" Procomp lift and it is recommended that anytime you lift over 2.5" you get new upper control arms (UCA) to help adjust for the new angle and clearance needed from the lift.

    To answer your question... no.

    I think you should look into a CAI and Cat-back exhaust with the URD MAF Sensor Cal before you start worrying about pullies. Over just SC it.

    i have an exhaust and a ram air snorkel with an afe pro dry filter. i was looking for a little bit of response or improvement i'm not bolting on an aftermarket supercharger.

    however if toyota came out with one for the 4 cyl i would look into that as an option for sure

    URD is as close as it's gonna get to factory. They are a great company, but your choice. The power increase from their SC is ridiculous.

    I plan on purchasing a Cat-back URD Maf cal and these pullies all at the same time.

    It will be nice to see if there is a noticeable difference when I install all bolt-ons at once.

    I already have a TRD CAI.

    And then once I pay off my truck in Feb I plan on supercharging.
