First drive this morning. Seems much more quite outside the car and maybe a little on the inside. I also replaced the water pump pully(ESC metal one) and belts while I was in there.

Not sure of the added benefits outside of making your car much easier to work on and more quite. I've seen a few remark about better gas-mileage. I'll report back on that with some real #'s. I have recorded the milegae on this car since the first tank of gas I have put in it using the "Road trip App" on my iPhone.
