Since you don't have an L67, you don't have to worry about this specifically, at least not for the same reason.

The increased torque on a high-mileage trans is a killer in time. It'* not a matter of if, but rather WHEN.

In addition, we're starting to see more lean/KR conditions on Series 1 L67'* with pulleys.

CHECK YOUR FUEL PRESSURE BEFORE INSTALLING A SMALLER PULLEY.

You can buy a fuel pressure gauge at any parts store. You're checking to see if it'* in spec. It probably isn't. There is no adjustment other than replacing the fuel pump or FPR.

Don't install a smaller SC pulley if you don't meet minimum spec. Check it, and report the following values here:

Key on, ignition off pressure, and how fast it drops down, and to what.
Idle fuel pressure.
Idle fuel pressure with the vacuum line pulled off the FPR.
