    Nothing wrong with an underdrive pulley. It draws less power from the engine therefore allowing more hp to be made. They make more than a TB spacer would as far as hp. I don't think it is the seat of your pants feeling though.

    There is a lot more to how an UP works than that.

    I know I didn't feel like writing the whole thing out. I was just trying to give a very brief summary on how it works and that they are not harmful to the operation of the car, unless installed improperly but then you have more serious problems.

    I don't feel like typing it out either, but there are cons to putting one on also.

    Thanks for the link. This seems like a pretty worthwhile mod.
