Default Lightened crank pulleys for 2015 WRX

So, Perrin has one available for around $130. It seems to be a pre-2014 part that just so happened to still for the FA20DIT. Are there any other pulleys that are as reliable but less pricey that would also fit?

I have seen some on eBay for $65-100 for pre-2014 models, but those manufacturers don't advertise as 2015 fitment. Perhaps they don't know that they also fit 2015? Or is there something special about the Perrin that makes it fit, and maybe the others don't?

Again, this motor is new. The car is new. If you want "more options" you need to let the aftermarket get spun up.

The FA Pulley is NOT the same as the EJ pulley. Perrin makes both..they are different parts/part numbers.

There are two types of people who shop on eBay:

1. Those that do and ask zero questions.
2. Those that shouldn't.

Consider which pool you are a member of.

That's a generalized statement, as eBay is just an online marketplace. Name brand items can be bought there on most occasions too. There's no reason not to shop on eBay if it offers the same apples for apples name brand product.

I have never met someone that asks zero questions
I think there is a 3rd pool...

Like what? The only issues I've seen from pulley installs on FA motors are people accidentally pulling out the spacer keyway thing and not putting it back properly.

y0re new here, you'll see things my way VERY shortly. While these rules may not apply to YOU, for 75% of NASIOC users, they do.

I'm not so sure that this motor is externally balanced. Properly changing the crank pulley would have no more effect than a lightened flywheel I would think.

I totally agree that 75% of Internet users are idiots empowered by a keyboard. 10% are sociopaths, 10% are Pedophiles, then the other 5% is made up by uber-elite people who know how to do more than type their desired URL into the Google Search bar to navigate to their favorite websites.
