I plan on going to the track with in the week, I'll get some times there then get sometimes with the pulley and post the difference, I'll also have a nice post if this pulley causes some type of internal engine problem.....

P.*. With the mods listed in my sig, should I add anymore before geting the pulley?? Like a tranny cooler??

How are YOUR plugs/wires???....Going to a Hi-flow cat. could be a benefit also...
From there...it gets spendy...NOS...Water/Alcohol....MSD Ignition...at least this is what I am intending to do to mine...PLUS MORE...

Well as of right now I don't have a CAT. I got it cut for the time being. I had Bosch plugs and wires, but I have changed the plugs to AC delco platinums. I am going to change the plugs soon, I was thinking about going with ac delco wires too. But I think I can order the Taylor Wire set for cheaper. I think the Taylor set is only around $35, and I think they wanted $45 for the ac delco. Would an additional tranny cooler be a good step to take before I go with the smaller pulley??

Well..as for the cooler...of course it would be a benefit...BUT not solely based on the pulley...The addition of a tranny cooler would benefit THE tranny while you are using the PULLEY !!!

As for plugs...I have been hearing that Copper or Iridium plugs are better for */C cars...although GM puts platimuns as stock...GO FIGURE...probably because of $$$...I am going with the NGK IX Plugs with MSD wires (gold) and Coils (red)..And to finish it off a MSD DIS-4 distributer....SOUND GOOD...

What size and type of tranny cooler is recommended?? I'm sure there are long posts about it somewhere here, but I thought this might be quicker if anyone knew off the top of their head. Thanks

Actually....it is really based on the room you have in front of the radiator...if you have an SSEi...you already have a cooler...its about half the size of the RAD...on the left side in front of your radiator...IF you don't have a STOCK COOLER...just measure your clearance and judge for yourself what size you will need...IF you DO have a stock cooler...you can either run DUAL coolers...or remove your stocker and replace with a full length cooler...

Hope this helps...
