and how it will help.
Bypass less boost out of the engine. In esscense....You get to your boost about 1000 RPM'* sooner I think? I definantly noticed a difference when I did it with my stock pulley. And a huge difference when I put it back to OEM a lil while ago with my 2.5. I think I'm gonna do it again for a while since I'm gonna be around towning it for a while.

It normally makes no difference in the TOTAL boost unless your BCS was way out of adjustment to begin with. It gets you into the boost quicker when you go WOT, for better and quicker throttle response.

It'* normally not a question of less or more, but more of WHEN and how quickly.
