So I got my Perrin pulley yesterday and I just gotta say, for the price, you really do feel a difference around the power band. The install was a *****, but not as impossible as others make it sound. Definitely worth it if you live in a Hilly area. The box doesn't feel as sluggish coming out of 1st gear anymore. Look out KIA's here I come!

Yeah, like Padanky, the pulley is really the only true recommended mod. The others are just added filler and noise. lol. Not, really, the pulley compliments it all. If anyone should mod performance wise, the pulley should be first.

Glad you're happy with it!! I knows I is!

^^^ yeah, other bolt on's just look cool, sound cool, and fill in empty spaces on your mod list. I ran damn near the same times at the track stock as I did with a bunch of bolt-ons, when I installed the pulley I knocked 2/10th of my qtr times consistantly. Went from 17.1's to 16.9's and I added the TBS recently and ran a 16.8 last month. My best stock was one 16.9 less than a month after I bought the xB. Manual of course. All the bolt-ons and around four track nights and 1/10th better. Trap speed right under 80mph.

But 10 bucks to see the show ain't bad! See if you can get some TV time!!

Good to hear people are liking the results from this mod, it made my to-do list.

Now who's been running theirs the longest trouble free. I have only heard of one person with a problem and I think it was a crank seal leak. I don't like to do any mods that require more work than they're worth.

I've had the pulley on for at least a year. At least. Probably only 10k miles with the pulley, though no problems. The only problem I have seen personally is that a guy has a squeaky belt. I told him to tighten the belt, and he claims he did, but it didn't fix anything.

I read things about people having problems and such, and most are with superchargers. Other than that, trouble free so far.
