You’ll blow the alternator and your car wont start

I have one for sale if your bent on buying one.

I too bought one but never installed because of this problem.

that and I run a 2000 watt system in my car.

Re: help with some info please

No, the worst that could happen is you buy a cheap pulley, its not balanced perfectly and your bearings go to hell. I wouldn't recommend an under-drive, although I have no personal experience with them. I would recommend the lightened AEM pulleys, but from what I understand you don't gain a whole lot of ponies. I'll be getting a set, but its only for the bling factor. They come in blue. I like blue.

he is talking about a lightened crank pully.^

But I never install mine.

It will last a few months with the lightened pully

Power stearing pull and AC pullys are ok its the crank pully thats a doosey!
