It appears that you missed the boat on this one buddy, once again 600whp Camaro SS vs. current 997 Gt2 Rs do your research and wake up.http://www.caranddriver.com/news/car...hotos_and_info. Also Porsche isn't Euro trash it is literally one of the very few best cars made hands down.

It's still good to know our cars are fast for their weight per hp though.

Hmmmmm

It's strange that this thread would have turned into a pros and cons argument about the value of a pulley when in fact, the purpose of the thread was to describe the steps to install one (if you decided you wanted one!). I would assume that, if you didn't want to install one, you wouldn't even have read it. Just sayin'! Since the process isn't that difficult, I am considering installing one on my car. If there were problems as some have suggested, I'm sure you could reinstall your factory pulley...simple as that!

anyone know where I can get on install tool? the one the local auto convenient store loans isn't long enough, nor does it have enough threads engaged. I've looked around for some all-thread, but all I can find is a 3-foot piece for $20. I'll gladly buy a tool fit for the job someone already made and/or used and resell.
Thanks,

I had UDs for 7 years on my Camaro without any cooling problem/voltage/anything. One thing is well known though; stock LS1 car alternator were trash from GM. Upgrading them to a stock truck unit is a must. UDs are a must when you wanna squeeze out the most out of your car. Plus the price is hard to beat for a proven 5-9rwhp. Old post ..whatever!

This is a must with an audio system. Such an easy fix.
