Default Lightened crank pulley or pulley kits?

Just wondering if anyone here has put one of these on their Baja? Worth while mod?

Our 03 N/A Baja will need its timing belt and water pump done soon and im thinking about getting the GFB pulley kit(2/3) for it as it would be the perfect time to do it. Or even just the crank pulley. GFB or Perrin.

I've got the Perrin lightweight crank pulley on mine, not underdriven, and I like it. I don't think there was a noticeable difference in acceleration when I installed it, but the engine revs faster and the revs drop faster too, allowing for faster shifts.

Personally I like it.

I got the agency power pully and I'm pretty stoked with it.

Perrin lightweight pulley is great! Not underdriven will have no problems. Revving faster means u accelerate faster. Not like a turbo, but better than stock. Get it!

Sweet, thanks for the replies guys. Think ill go for the Perrin too since i dont have to change all the belts etc....
Too bad they dont make the alternator or A/C pulleys too. Specially the A/C one.

My guess is that i get the Impreza 2.5 N/A 02-07 one?

I've been contemplating reversing my decision. Reason is our stock main pulley is insulated and balanced. There's a rubber ring in there to help isolate the shock from the devices to the main crank bearings. It definitely does rev faster at lower RPM, but I'm almost debating if the extra wear on the engine is worth it.

Another option is ATI's http://www.atiracing.com/products/da...dam-subaru.htm

Unfortunately the super damper is super expensive! however the nice thing is it's dampened in addition to the rubber bushing.
