Default GFB vs N1 pulleys?

ok i hate the search function cuz you can't search for under 3 characters.... (ie. N1) =P
but ive been running amuck (through the forums and websites) looking at all the different pulley sets and i haven't seen many arguments between the Go fast bits pulleys and the N1 pulleys

i was just wondering cuz all i see is arguments between UD and 3 pulley set

I just ordered the N1 pulley set. the ONLY reason I didnt go with the GFB pulley's is because it doesnt use the STOCK sized belts. It has a underdrive pulley on the crank, but i believe the alternator belt is also smaller, so there is no electrical loss

yeah you are right... the GFB comes with the belts... so you don't need to worry to get them...

Ya, but say something happens and you lose a belt...Or you are replacing them cuz they are worn.

Its alot easier to go to the parts store and get the stock belt for your car instead of having to take the old belt and try and figure out what sixe the belt is.

The .5HP difference is worth the use of stock versus odd sized belts.

Ghomer 1-
I just installed mine (GFB)yesturday. All three are smaller but the alt and p/s spin at the same speed. If you're not doing anything friday night I can meet you at capitol raceway and let you check them out. I want to see if the car is any faster with these in it.

Alright man. I might be up there anyways. Me and my buddy have a start-up race team with a Honduh CRX.

Check out pictures of our car here

http://www.geocities.com/poorboyracing2000/


All-Motor CRX (No Power Adders). Best run to date=11.5@120

The car has been on ESPN 2 a few times.

Sorry to hijack the thread, but what do you think?

MRT will be doing a lightweight but stock diameter pully set soon.

That way you get the benefit of low mass without the voltage issues

My lights do not dim at night with the GFB pulleys. With the fogs on, the radio and the a/c pumping. I don't get the voltage problem people talk about. All three pulleys in the gfb kit are smaller. They are all in proportion to each other.

Well some people with large stereo's do. The current GFB pulley set is underdrive.

I am talking about a Future set of pulleys the stock diameter. They are also going to be available in black for those who do not want the pulleys as obvious as they currently are
