    Powerbond Makes SLP's pulley without SLP's price. I say go with the powerbond and save 50-75 bucks.

    I run the ASP 25%, unless your taking the stock one off to do a cam etc. or getting it for cheap, I wouldnt bother. I didnt notice or see any gains at the track. Not a good bang for the buck.

    Powerbond and SLP are pretty much the same pulley with a different name and a different price. I would recommend you go with either of those -- which ever you can find cheaper (which in most cases is the Powerbond).

    Personally, I have the SLP (got a killer deal on it) and I haven't had a bit of trouble with belts slipping, etc.

    Well first, why do you want one? What are your plans for the car? If your doing a bolt on car only I wouldn't waste my money on one. If your doing heads and cam it will help it rev faster and that would be the time to do it. If your plans include going FI with a supercharger you'll need one that is different from the ones your currently looking at.

    my car is cam/stalled/nitrous and all i need to make it a full bolt on car is the pulley (future plays are going with a new nitrous kit (tnt f1) and the underdrive pulley(as i was recommended a powerbond)sounds correct? (and a new tune with a diffrent tuner)

    Well, with either the SLP or Powerbond pulleys, they supply you with the belt numbers that you can go and pick up at an auto parts store. They are all the same for Hp that you'll get for a pulley swap. The only grip that I have for my SLP pulley is that it has rusted slightly.

    Yeah, I checked out the link, look like a cheap knock off of the Powerbond pulley. Think they don't offer a warrenty of any type.
