Default Pulley on N/A SE

Can you replace the pulley on a N/A Bonnie SE for HP gains like you can on a */C SSEi

The only pulley on the SE N/A is the harmonic balance on the crankshaft. The only thing it would do is making the belt turn faster creating stress on everything else. ie. Alternator, water pump, air condition compressor. etc. The reason the pulley on the supercharge makes a difference is because it makes the SC turn faster which creates more psi in the throttle body, and cylinders.

So to make my long answer short NO.

Well I understand that this is a give and take relationship. I was thinking of taking power away from something like Power Steering,which is to prevelant, and sending that to the engine buy putting a larger pulleyon the pump and a smaller one on the motor. I know that other car owners get this done on like camaros and mustangs.

My understanding is that the 3800 is internally balanced and messing with the harmonic balancer pulley size will result in quick engine damage. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

May cause steering problems at low speeds.

If you really want the "little" extra power you could go out and buy elelctric motors for everything. AC, Water Pump, Power Steering. Of course you would have to put a bigger alternator on it to power the extra motors.
