Default Underdrive pulleys

ok i was considering gettng some cause i was told its an easy bolt on. then, i was talking with my friend and he said it reduces voltage by a lot. Is he just being gay( since he does drive a camaro) or is he actually right?

From what I heard they decrease the power going to minor things like your a/c, heater, etc.... But my main concern is, and I'm sorry for stepping into your question, will they work with a cent. supercharger. Because I heard that they wont with the KB type blowers.

if your going to supercharge then dont get the underdrive. if you dont have an aftermarket sound system then I guarantee you woulnt have any problems.

As long as you avoid the piggyback (MAC) types, you will be fine. Any company, March or Steeda, that has the SFI approved damper is good. If you need a write up for the install, PM me and I'll send it. I'm working with Code to get it into a sticky.
