Default pulley kit?

What is the rationale behind the increased performance you get from an aftermarket pulley kit?

Lighter pulleys = less rotational inertia = less parasitic drag = quicker rev'ing

also, underdriven pulleys deliver less power to the accessories leaving more for the wheels.

Look here .....

if you're taking the time to respond to his question you might as well answer it or nicely direct him to itinstead of wasting the time being a retard. no need for it.
This is true also, but I already spoon-fed the answer. We all prefer that members seek their own answers before asking a question. It's not that we don't want to help, rather that we've helped that topic before and if I have to search for an answer, I'd much rather the poster had at least tried to find their own answer. Also, who's to say that I know what I'm talking about? If you search for yourself, you have a better basis for making decisions whether it's about what part to buy, what diagnostic to look into or what maintenance needs to be done. In the end, it's your money, your car and your decision, so do YOUR research before asking something that has already been discussed.
