Default 97 EJ20K Timing Tensioner/Extra Pulley Question

Hi all,
In the process of doing the timing belt and water pump on my 97 ej20k.
I spoke with elislider briefly about this and he may respond to this thread also, but I ordered my timing stuff and fortunately discovered the car had the new style tensioner yay so no conversion there. Rallispec also sent me the new style bracket for the tensioner and it has a small pulley on it that the car currently does not have on it. Pictured below. Can I install this bracket with new pulley or do I need to Leave that pulley off? This is probably a noob question and all I guess, but I'm not sure if that small pulley would effect the timing or not? I guess it would?

Photo stolen from meatys guide! Thanks

do not use that pulley. it is only for EJ205/EJ207 engines, because they have thinner head gaskets which move the heads in closer and introduce slack in the belt

Great thanks! I believe you messaged me this before but I can't seem to find it.
I think I'm going to install the new plate and bolts and just not put the pulley on. Just for future engine build use
