B4 I order the AEM Pulley for my 97 Lude,

to anyone who has it on his Lude,

does it help on revs? power? under the value of $90~100 USD ???

please help me~
I don't want to get nothing to my Lude after I invest $100USD to make it faster.

I got those on my car....... and to tell you the truth you won't even notice any power gains... what did you expect from a $100 mod? ...... Better save your money up for something else........

i didnt notice a big difference, BUT Spanishricer with a 5th gen lude, dynoed before and after with them and he got a 7-9hp gain after the vtec engagement and up. youre lights will be slightly dimmer as well as all your dash/cd player lights. i didnt notice a difference, but i also installed them in the rain, so it was hard for me to tell with a before and after test drive.


they look nice.... maybe they give a gain, its hard to tell on teh butt dyno.

peace

I got them and I noticed a little gain. The car is more responsive in the higher rpms but I didn't notice the lights being dimmer or anything. I got aftermarket bulbs anyway so I guess I just couldn't tell...:p

Yeah, I dynoed a steady 7-9hp gain after VTEC engagement with the pullies installed. Just don't expect to be thrown back into your seat after you install a set. The extra power is there, but as wutangben put it, the butt dyno isn't going to register too much of a difference. Definately a great mod for the money though.

I did some research on them cuz i been looking for them as well. I havent heard anything bad about them except dimming lights, slower windows and maybe not as cold AC, but some dont experience those. I heard it's a great mod if u have a SS lude though, i mean it's a $100 mod it's not going to make u hella fast but give u something out of it, haha, well gluck

Voltage will drop, it's a given when you install the pulleys. It's just that some cars might be idling higher than others that is why it is not as noticable. I just raised the idle on my car.

I knew $100 mod couldn't help a lot on making much power...

I just wanna know if it is valuable to spend $100 to put the pulleys onto my Lude..
