Running my stock 2.55 pulley cause the car simply accelerates slower with the 2.2 pulley on.
Forgive me, but, I am honestly pretty dissapointed, i created this and its failing miserably, and for the life of me, i cannot figure out for sure, why.
Atleast i dont have to worry about burning a hole in my exh manifolds with this pulley, as they dont get fire red hot anymore.

I don't even know what to do.

im not pulling any KR with the stock pulley, with the 2.2 im back up around 4-5 again, but the acceration is horrible at higher speeds, and the RED hot manifolds kinda scare me
