Default Mrjosh pulley on Ebay!!!

Review on the Mrjosh pulley:
This pulley had been installed on my car for about a week, and I am very satisfied with it. I felt the increase in power, like faster reving, and it just like making my car lighter to drive. I think this pulley provide a decent gains in performance, and it should gives a 6-8hp gains (I haven't dyno yet!). The quality is great too!

My current mod:
Torque Chip II
Short ram air intake w/KNN filter (ebay)
Mrjosh pulley (ebay)
Whiteline rear sway bar w/HD mounts & endlinks
Cusco rear lower arm bar
Front strut bar
Piaa Super Plasma (The color is great, but is not bright at all!)
*I just order the Piaa Super Plasma GT-X, and hope that it will be brighter as what they claim

Best buy mod for power (consider from my current mod list!):
1) Torque Chip II
2) Mrjosh Pulley
3) Short ram air intake w/KNN filter

Best buy mod for suspension:
1) Whiteline rear sway bar
2) Front strut bar
3) Cusco rear lower arm bar

All the mod are installed at a different time period, so I can really tell the difference for each mod:

Torque Chip II
Pro: It will make a huge improvement in the 3000/up rev range

Con: My car had a rough idle in the first two weeks after installed the chip, however it will eventually disappear

Mrjosh Pulley
Pro: Very good performance mod. Faster response/faster accel. Is a relatively cheap/effective mod to get. Recommand it!

Con: Non so far! Some people suggest not to install it since it may casue damage to the bearing

Short ram air intake w/KNN filter (ebay)
Pro: I love the sound it produce in WOT. wohmmMMWOOMMMMM
Rev a little higher! More power in the higher rev range

Con: In my opinion, I think it causes my car to lost some low end torque. It made me to hate the stop/go traffic!

Whiteline rear sway bar w/HD mounts & endlinks
Pro: This is a must for any impreza. It will make the car to drive in the neutral, and the adjustable settings really help to provide a setting that fit the driver

Con: SQUEAK... please help me to solve this problem!!!

Front strut bar
Pro: Better handling in a corner

Con: This mod is installed before I got my rear sway bar. The bar made my car UNDERSTEER like mad. I suggest to get the rear strut bar/rear sway bar along with it

Cusco rear lower arm bar
Pro: I don't see any difference in the dry condition. However, I do notice that my rear end is firmer when running on the snow. It helps my car to run better in the straight, and now I can run at a higher speed on the snow

Con: Can't see improvement in cornering. I think it will help on the track, but not on the street

Piaa Super Plasma
Pro: Nice color

Con: They claim that it will produce a 130w/110w of lights, and that is BS

I dont think he means as in overall weight. Because of the quicker throttle response and smoother revs, the car has a "lighter" feel to it. I can vouch for that too.

MrJosh43's pulley = The car is smoother and accelerates faster (+torque).

I love it, and will not take it off. Only if I need to.

Good review, impreza2002. I just bought one a week ago and I can't wait to put it in!

I'd hate to go off topic, but where did you get your TCII from, and for how much? I'm looking to get one cheaper than Ganz's posted $250 plus shipping.

impreza2002- As far as your "Squeaking" with your rear sway bar have you tried puting grese at the joints? you might not have put enough in when you first installed they sway bar. i had the same problem. I assume it occurs over bumps in the road, such as speed bumps or driveways.

For the squeeking, try some different greese in the bushings. I heard some people wrap the bar where the bushings go with Teflon, but I used Slick50 greese and I haven't heard a thing yet. Maybe it is because I have a Cusco bar. But I would recommend trying a different greese.
