    Just got back -

    RPM's seem to climb with more ease.....No noticeable power increase with the butt dyno. Will test out some more over the weekend. Sure looks pretty though - hahaha!

    Looks good. i felt my gains off the bat with mine, but they did an ECU reset for me (pedal method). give it a restart and after a day you might feel something. some reports on the org say it took a while for the ECU to adjust for their crank pulley.

    i love mine, but im getting some squeaking from the belt (i guess during the winter the belts contract because of the cold) ill have to have the belt adjusted a bit.

    Cuz theres a sign on mine that says "Exit only - Do not enter" :LOL:

    I'll see about a reset - the rpms do climb with much more ease - so thats a good thing.

    I would go full reset (battery) if I were you. The pedal method sucks donkey & is a PITA.

    Why does it suck?...
    not really a pain, just got to get the timing on point...works almost every time for me since i am used to it.

    looks good, even sleeved... way better than the cnr pulleys we had couple years back, had to take mine off and on 3 times... I am pretty sure the owner of WRP is on our board.

    Looks good, I may look into that down the road if nobody reports any problems with it. I'm still a fan of the stock pulley ever since all the research I did into crank pulleys due to the CNR issues.

    I don't think you'd feel much in the butt-dyno from removing 5 lbs of rotating mass. You drop 2 lbs of weight on each wheel and you'll free up a lot more rotating mass than 5 lbs of pulley... but you may see free-revving in park go up much faster because the rotating mass doesn't involve the full drivetrain this time and 5 lbs is a healthy chunk in comparison to THIS amount of rotating mass.

    I mean I didn't feel a whole lot when I did all 3 CNR pulleys, except when I would rev in neutral or park.
