Default Underdrive Pulley's for 4.0 ?

I was thinking about getting the steeda underdrive pulley's for the stang. I was wondering though if anyone had already done this? If so, which ones did you get because steeda's are like $280. They say you get about 10 HP from them as they reduce friction i guess?

Any info from you more experienced guys would be sweet. Worth it or no? And if so which ones do you suggest?

I suggest: http://www.stangmods.com/ASP-Underdr...226-526400.htm . Comes with the new belt already that's needed for the udp. Should net a little bit of rwhp. From reviews, I hear it is a noticable mod and definitely worth the money. Supposed to net you +1-2mpg too.

Default Too much money too little bang..

We tested a UDP on the dyno At Dougs, we got 4 lb ft of torque and 6 RWHP. The UDP is a lot of money for a little bang. But that being said, you will notice a slight improvement in the ability of the engine to rev a tad bit quicker. I also noticed a slight ( and I mean very slight increase in steering effort. No overheating or battery charging issues were noted. Ran the car down here in Alabama for about 2 years without incident. Removed the pulley to install the "X" Charger. So if you can swallow the price for a few HP go for it.
