Default What's a good basic UDP?

I'm saving my pennies for one and am asking who makes a good, basic pulley. Prices range from less than $50 on Ebay (Bomz and one other) to $220+ for color anodized show pieces.

I'm looking for a good pulley with no fancy colors, coatings, logos, names, etc. Functional without pretty. No problems with bore size, fitment, sharp edges, rough machining and the like.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Up Das Pooper?

Why buy underdriven? Just buy mr. josh's lightweight pulley and support his small business.

Underdriven doesn't give that much more power over a lightened pulley.

Really for the same reason I installed a 30% smaller nozzle in my home furnace. I don't need the extra capacity.

Car makers design the car to be comfortable to drive for Grandma who lives in downtown Phoenix. It never gets that hot here (indeed, quite the opposite this year in NORTHern NY) and I can handle a little extra steering effort. So, lightweight to drop inertia, underdriven to reduce parasitic losses even if only a few %.

Thanks for the pointer to Mr. Josh. He has a nice looking product for a very reasonable price.

BTW, the price for endlinks is really good. I was going to have a local machine shop make up a set out of plate but Mr. Josh's prices are low enough to negate any price I might get from a local shop.

That's a really cheap price for an aftermarket pulley vs places like Unorthodox Racing. Support Mr. Josh.

i have a Go Fast Bits 2 pulley set that i'm probably taking off my car. It's an underdriven crank and a new smaller alternator. so you get the benefits of underdrive without screwing the charge system. comes with pretty new belts too. the crank probably weighs almost half of what a perrin lightened crank does (played around with one in a shop)...lemme know if you're interested.
