I've got the VMax potted tb, and I'm very happy with it...

I've got a question, what are the benefits of replacing The underdrive pulley anyway?

it's a smaller crank pulley so all the accessories run slower, it frees up about 6-10 rwhp.

I have the Vmax throttle body and am very happy with it. Absolutely worth it for the improved feel and precise respose. Extra horses were an added bonus.

I have both. Throttle response from the TB is awesome. You can for sure feel the pickup from the pulley as well! I would highly recommend this combo to anyone!

These will compliment your current mods. I normally would not reccomend the pulley for a stock car too much work for too little gain. But in your case it should work well. I have the VMAX and love it.

I have the VMAX with a Cold Air Industries and love it. Now I have to find some sticky tires as I am overpowering the traction control leaving red lights.
