      You guys really don't care about your warranty?

      What warranty. I personally think its a joke, theyll break more than theylll fix.
      At least thats how it works over at Irvine BMW. VW should be no different. Even with my limited car knowledge, Id rather fix things/mod things on my own, than pay someone, or have the dealer work on it.
      Job i do myself= takes me maybe 1.5 times longer, but i know itll be done right, with no shortcuts.
      Dealer/Mechanic i dont have any experience with= sketchy./

      I only have one guy i take my car to and thats for body work. Very trustworthy guy. Darrell @ OC Body and bumper in irvine Very trustworthy guy!

      I want to get this pulley bad, is there a diy for it or is it pretty straight forward?

      I noticed a lil power difference and this odd sound around 4600 rpm that sounds like a high pitched growl or something.

    7. 02-07-2010 05:24 PM #112
      What's this sound you guys are getting off this mod?

      Is that normal?


    8. 02-07-2010 10:51 PM #113
      There shouldn't be any different sound with this...

    9. 02-11-2010 09:57 AM #114
      Will installing this make your AC not to blow out cold air like factory..I've Heard from someone with a NST pulley it doesn't blow as cold once installed cause it reduces the energy going into the AC?

      The lightweight pulley should not effect the AC at all, it is the exact same size as the stock pulley, just lighter in weight.

      Unfortunately the Bentley does not list any torque specs, so the best answer I can give is tight. Snugging them up with a standard size 3/8 ratchet should put out more than enough torque to keep things in place.

      If you have more electronics that stock, I'd certainly go with the standard lightweight pulley instead of the underdrive lightweight. The standard lightweight pulley will not have any effect on the electronics.

      i think you answered my question. with dual 380 viairs for my air ride, i dont think the smaller pulley would be the best for me car

      Correct, if you are pushing the electrical system hard, I would stick with the standard lightweight pulley, not the underdrive.

      i do have to admit; if this item had free shipping i would buy it much quicker then waiting for a laundry list of stop to ship

      I have had the underdrive pully installed for over 10000 miles. I commute about 150 miles every day, but haven't noticed a difference in milage. I'm also running 2 amps and a radar detector and have few issues doing that as well. So far, it's been a good product for me.

      My average would be 350 highway miles per tank of 93 octane. I could probably reach 390-400 if I wanted to gamble.

      I found that it didn't affect mileage, or at least not enough to register as significant.

      The best thing about this mod is that the engine doesn't feel sluggish anymore, especially starting from a stop.

      I had mine installed today (lightweight) and what I felt is a quicker rpm increase, like if the engine was working "faster".
      You can see that when gears seem to go up faster (auto).
      Good investment....

      This pulley and the NLS short shifter are the best $200 you can spend on a 2.5. I think they should be everyone's 1st mod
