    I installed the Perrin Lightweight Crank Pulley about a month ago. I noticed a difference when cruising at lower rpms in 1st/2nd gear, it seems less jumpy when not on the throttle. Also, its 10x easier to rev match when you downshift at higher rpms. Is it worth $129.99 - No, but if you can find a new/used one for $60-$80, I'd say go for it.
    The install was easy, no need for the removal tool or belt stretcher on the 08+.. pretty much all you need is a torque wrench, 22mm socket, and some zip ties. Took about 20min from start to finish.

    Nice ride!!! Is your car dropped?

    Back when I had a Honda, rule was drop b4 wheels. Made sense as cars would look ridiculous looking like a 4x4 with rims no drop. After a while I hated it as a daily. Always scraping and couldn't give people rides. It looked good but it was headache. I guess it was fine then, I was single no kids.

    Now I have a wife and kids. Can't drop the car. I do however need new wheels as I think I may have bent one of my rim.

    Anyways, if your car is not dropped... It actually looks good. I maybe in the clear on getting aftermarket replacements.

    ride height is stock actually, i will eventually do more suspension work and may lower it slightly but i dont think this car will ever see more than an inch drop.

    OT- im trying to figure out what i want to do with my sub install. i have a 12'' hatch and im either going to have a box build that will fire towards towards the rear and rest against the back fold down seats (which would make folding the seats down to use the extra space difficult) or have a fiberglass box made to the side of the trunk to save on space. option 2 will cost like 2x more. thoughts anyone?

    I live in Florida and have not had an issue and haven't heard of it happening to anyone else. I guess it's a possibility but I don't see it actually happening unless you are careless

    The seats were another guys haha but they do look nice. Me and 2 other guys went to a mustang dyno down here in the area. When the third car was on it we realized they never even turned the fans on haha. I put 306/319 I think on that one. We plan on going somewhere else eventually just to see what we're really putting down though
