There is no reason that it would damage anything, it's just a light weight pulley and if it's for your engine then it will be okay..

I'm gonna have to correct you on that Angelo

The aftermarket pulley donít have the rubber damper like the OE ones have witch dampens vibrations. They like to eat up main bearings and oil pumps. IMPO itís not worth getting one b/c you will have to do repairs in the near future b/c of the pulley and you wonít even notice the diff.
If you really want to free up some lost power do a power steering delete.

Thanks for setting me right..

The rubber dampener is part of the pulley. If you're not paying attention, you don't even realize it's a layer of hard-ish rubber. It separates the "hub" of the pulley from the pulley's outer rim.

What are the chances that an after market crank pulley, without the rubber damper, will damage main bearings and oil pump? Is it guaranteed to happen, every time?

If a
crank pulley without a rubber damper is installed (in a 96 Accord) how long does it take (how many miles) for it to damage main bearings and oil pump?
