I would be suspect of the quality for $55. You don't want it warping or cracking under the strain when you are driving and lose your accessory drive like for your power steering...

Is the Ralco Pulley sold by a reputable company? I would be suspicious of small businesses that claim better pricing for "new" performance parts. I would make sure they can back it up incase of defects. 55 dollars is a good deal, it just seems almost to good to be true.

Nope I'm pretty sure they make an underdrive and stock layout for the V6's. Wasn't thaism (I think that's who it was) working with Ralco for a groupbuy for the V6s? Just search and see what you come up with I'm almost certain they have it for the V6.

should be anywhere between 3-5hp. I think the vendor here has a dyno or something.

No. no after market has it, unless that it is the super dampener one. the car is internally balance. just as long as you don't run light weight flywheel and the pulley. Its one or the other. Also if your just running bolt on it should be okay. If you are planing to boost your should just still with oem or get the super- dampener.

You get what you pay for.

UR Pulleys are CNC machined and 0 gram balanced. Ask Ralco what standards they have? I just don't see how ppl would want to trust in a company you know cuts corners. I've sold their product before and all they do is try to copy other companies' products and they do so very poorly.

just remember to get the right belt size. Both UR and Ralco people are having problems with there tensioners due to the belt being to loose or too tight.

Pretty much everyone that has it absolutely loves it and says its about the best gains for the money you can get. Take that for what its worth.

I couldn't agree more. That is why I went with the UR Crank Pulley.
