I want it sooo bad...im talking about pulleys

A couple of weeks ago , the charcoal filter was removed and at the same time the Dixis Ti V2 was installed. And so was the Ti X pipe.
I have to admit that the difference was noticeable. For one, the car definitely feels smoother , low, mid, and high ends. For two, it took a dump and lost more than 40-60 lbs , i think. (since the Ti exhaust is so frickin lite).
Btw, it sounds grrreat...
Now , the next mod that i was thinking about was the EVO PULLEYS. A couple of board members tell me that i should go ahead and do it. BUT i what i really want to know is both the Pros/Cons.
Are there any issues associated with this mod?
Will the dealership know that the pulleys have been changed?
Any kind of honest info would help here guys.

Hitting the search would give you the answer within seconds. Basically will get more hp and running a niddle or 2 warmer than before.

I would like to know where you got your mufflers from and at what price ?

RPi dynodynamics dyno shows no significant gains from the
pulleys. From my understanding they've run many cars and
the results are always the same. I'm not sure if it's because
of the type of dyno or what. A dynojet seems to show gains.
Dynojets are notorious for showing much higher readings that
dyno dynamics/mustag dynos. Here is some dynojet numbers
which measure hp/tq differently:

Evosport Pulley Installed & Dyno'd.....

Be careful how you read this as the first dyno shows stock vs.
pulley, exhaust, charcoal filters. The final results show something
like a 16hp/18tq. Also see that there was NEVER a before
dyno run on the same day so the numbers can be very misleading.

If someone could do a before/after pulley only dyno and post the
results that would be great.

I'm interested as well. I've already researched the many threads on this but couldn't find any install information. Anyone know where I can get these installed for a reasonalbe price in CA specifically around the LA area? Does Eloy @ RPI install pullies as well? I'm going to pull the trigger as soon as my end of the year bonus check comes in!

Yes, RPi does install the pulleys. I'm sure you could get a good deal
from him as well.

BTW, if you do get them installed try to get a before and after dyno to post.
