    I'm getting either a UD pulley kit, and better tune, or drag bags. I dont know what I should get first. Guidance?

    Current tune was to turn off lights because of headers and knocked out my rev limiter but that's about it. Also, are there any cool UD pulley kits out there besides the obvious slp and asp ones?

    I run a powerbond on my fbody which is supposed to be very close in design to the SLP....both have the tall shoulder. They're all within $10 or so of each other. Make sure you swap out that bolt and don't try to reuse the old one. Either put a new factory bolt in there and stretch it to spec or buy a new ARP bolt and if memory serves me correctly it's torqued to 240 ft/lbs.

    Run the UD pulley and see how you like it. Then re-tune.

    You MIGHT see a rise in engine temp since the water pump will be spinning slower. You'll also have a drop in voltage because the alternator is spinning slower.

    You'll have to PM Frost and see what he says.

    I've ran the UD pulley on mine for years with zero issues.
