Aem tru power pullies?

I was thinking of getting them for my zc what do you think?

I have had pullies on other cars and it made quite a difference but there was also 8 cylinders on those cars.

that's if you replace the crank pulley which happens to be the harmonic balancer too... the Tru Power replaces accessory pulleys which is acceptable.

no, just be a little peppier and better throttle reponse, better mileage if you don't beat it.

I thought the harmonic balancer was only for 6 cylinder engines. Inline for don't need them???

YO, dunno why that would be... AEM doesn't even make a blower... besides that anything that helps a blower helps an N/A motor too cuz they operate very closely

Brett, inline engines have the worst dynamics out of all of them almost. V8 and most V6 are at 60 degree Vs so at least some of the motion goes towards cancelling each other out. VR6 is at a 15 degree V... inline engines all move up and down together - not opposing each other. Subaru and Porsche flat motors have the best dynamics out there!

Okay, I thought that the dynamics dealt with the froces created by having muliple banks of cylinders not in line with each other... But it seems that it is the angle which the cylinders are on realative to the crank which is the issue. Thanks for the clarification!
