The 10 bhp claim is likely optimistic, however you can see some gain from going to an underdrive pulley. Just don't forget the tradeoff. With an underdrive pulley your ancillaries will be turning more slowly. This means your alternator, your water pump, your A/C compressor, and your power steering and brake booster. Slower rotational speeds mean less assist.
