Reputation wise all three companies are top notch. I just need input on people with these pulleys and why one is better than the other.

I've had an order with UUC for about 7 months. They couldnt give half a fvck about their customers anymore. I've canceled my order with them. They dont actually have any pullies, but they'll happily take your money.

Switched to TMS. They've been a bit slow because they have been out racing, but once they are back in the shop working I should be getting my pullies

last time i dealt with uuc it was a pleasant experience. i had to call back and change my order literally as it was being shipped out. they fixed everything and i got my package in a reasonable amount of time. this was dealing with suspension parts though.

Do you have ANY issues with the car running hotter? I know the pulleys force the water pump to turn slower = less coolant being distributed.

Did you have a shop install or DIY?

I'm debating either pulleys first or intake..

Purchased a set of TMS power pulleys will let you know how all of It goes along once they arive and I do the DIY .

Ive chose to go with TMS for 3 main reason"s , One because I love there line of products (TMS) , I loved there detail write up on It and there quick on shipping.
