Anyone here in NGC interested in a UUC Underdrive Pulley Set including the matching sized main belt?

UUC price new is $199 http://store.uucmotorwerks.com/share...t=products.asp


I'll do $50 + your OEM pullies, but you have to be free to do the swap this afternoon. Otherwise, I'll just source the right belt size to run them with the s/c.

Call me if you want to do this.

I honestly couldn't say because I did that, Dinan Intake, Dinan Throttle Body, Dinan Exhaust, all at the same time, so I felt a lot of difference.

I bet if you just did pullies, you won't "feel" a difference.

Replacement accessory pulleys for water pump and power steering pump that use less engine power, gains of 5-11hp. Kit includes new accessory belt.

UUC Motorwerks Ultimate Under Drive Pulley Set

When you bought your BMW, you paid for a lot of horses... but are some of them stuck in the corral?

Take back that lost horsepower!

A car's engine does many things other than just making the car move. Power is used to run the various accessories... things like the water pump, power steering pump, and alternator.

All of these use horsepower, horsepower that is lost. Power that could be making the car faster.

Each accessory uses rotary power - each accessory is turned to perform it's function, whether it's an electrical component (the alternator) or a fluid displacing component (the water pump and power steering pump). They all have a pulley which takes power from the crankshaft pulley via a belt.

Some of the engine accessories take more power than they really need, dramatically affecting engine performance.

Like an overprotective parent setting a curfew, there is a very big safety margin built into many systems of a BMW, especially in the accessories.

Driving these accessories at higher rpm is a waste of energy, running it at a much higher rate than it needs to for optimum effectiveness. This is energy which could be put toward acceleration instead.
