No not really, I saw that same link about a week ago, so I called AEM about a release date. A guy called me back and said that they would get done, but not anytime soon, as they didn't perceive much of a market for them. LOL, he said "It seems people are more interested in $80 grounding kits than real bolt on mods". Guess we'll have to wait for UR.

They've said TBA since this time last year. I don't know when or if they'll ever get around to it.

Actually they're not. Most people see pretty nice gains such as 8-10hp. And if you want to talk about a waste of money, take a look at Comptech's exhaust for the 2003+ Accord. But we won't go into this conversation again.

that's EXACTLY what i was going to say. pullies have consistently shown dyno gains of 10+ hp. hell, with i/e pullies and unichip we could see whp gains approximating what the SUPERCHARGER is going to be putting out.

You seem to chime at such perfectly timed moments. Just when I'm thinking to myself "What does ComptechAccord4 have to say about this pulley conversation?" Well, now I know.

"Pulleys are a waste of money" Do you care to elaborate on that? Check out the reviews that many 6th Gen owners gave the UR pulleys and you can possibly appreciate the money they spent on them and the time they spent on giving a review of them!

Not true. Comptech makes a high boost pulley for their superchargers, which adds a little more juice to the supercharger (I believe it raises the psi by about 2 from what the supercharger normally produces) So to answer your question, Comptech DOES make pulley's and their pulley will be the ONLY one that I will be buying.

Are you insane? Even with pulleys and a chip, you car still wouldn't even hold a candle to a supercharged car! That was so bogus, please don't ever say that again...

10 hp gain? Oh please! You got proof of that? Because I'd really like to see that come from a few lightweight pulleys......

too bad you need to dish out around 4k for the supercharger before you can get that pulley, not to mention a new clutch if you drive a 6 spd.

13.5 hp
http://www.v6performance.net/forums/...ad.php?t=35794
even just cai + unichip = 17 hp.

what? 30hp? for about 1/3 the price of the supercharger.

Pulleys are a great, and proven upgrade. Every little bit counts! I can't wait for the UR pulley set!

It's a matter of perspective. Currently the 7th gen Accord does not have alot of modifications available. If you are trying to increase your performance as much as possible, you may to go 'non traditional' routes like pulleys/ground kit. There are probably some gains to made in both of those cases (especially with the pulleys, as they make sense from a physics stand point) but it is not going to be huge. If you want huge inexpensive gains, then you purchased the wrong car. Big gains from cheaps upgrades can only come from cars that are very inefficienct from the factory, e.g. 5.0 Mustangs, LT/LS 1 Camaro's, et cetera. I literally bolted on
50 RWHP from doing Long tube headers, and a drag exhaust (6" of pipe a glasspack and a dump) on my old 94 Camaro Z/28. Honda engines are far to efficient from the factory to get gains like that. So either understand it, or continue to gripe about how there are no inexpensive 'big power' mods.

P.S.-I personally don't think they are worth it. Especially in 120 degree AZ...the last thing I want is to slow down my AC Compressor!

You can't just add horsepower gains like that, especially peak horsepower.

I'll have to agree with the Comptech fanboi and say a cai/unichipped/pulleys 7th gen won't hold a candle to a supercharged one.

k, i know air flow stuff doesn't add, but power gained from pullies is pretty independent. it's inherent in the way the engine runs.

but i think dollar for dollar, bolt ons will be more cost effective that the supercharger.

7-8 hp? So that would be like 3 or 4 to the wheels? Now ask yourself, pulley's cost about $150-200, and are a BIT** to install. Is spending all that money and all that time really worth a few more lousy hp gains? If yes, than I suppose that pulleys are your cup of tea...

WHen someone says they gained X hp it usually means to the wheels....
the UR pulleys for the 6th gen J series motors hit 10+hp TO THE WHEELS. I think the price to performance ratio is much better for pulleys(based on the gains on the 6th gen) than the supercharger.

Im sure it would be like driving a different car with the supercharger.

Im sure our car supercharged will give us a 13.4-13.6 with good tires. Pullies lol, maybe .1 tenth off like 14.1 in 1/4 with exhaust/AEM
The sc will obviously give more gains but for the price, the pulleys are a better mod.
