    Installation of a crank pulley is cake. Remove the black plastic intake piece that covers half of the radiator. Remove all drivebelts. Put the car in 5th gear with the e-brake on, and use a breaker bar to remove the crank bolt. Wiggle the old pulley off making sure you dont lose the key when you finally remove it. Coat the end of the crank with a little oil and reverse the procedure.

    Yes, that works very well, it's how I did mine.

    However, the part about "wiggle the old pulley off" may take you about 30 minutes, 2-3 bandaids and some knuckle skin. Maybe some radiator fins too. Not like it happened to me or anything......

    Those things are on there tight!

    I don't have any personal experience with the underdrives, but I've heard of the charging problems associated with them.

    I know the pulley won't mess up the charging part, but what about the timing or anything related to performance? That's what my concern is, do you guys have remap your ECU in order to work with it properly.

    The function of a lighter pulley releaves the load on the motor. It doesn't really gain power directly but allows it to put the existing hpt to use. Which offers a more responsive and smooth engine performence.

    Have and/or do you guys noticed any wobbling. I have a Perrin but now I noticed that my 22 mm bolt wobbles quite a bit. For those who have the stock crank pulley still on, does it wobble? Any suggestions to the problem? Or is it a problem at all.

    I haven't noticed mine wobbling, but I will check it now to see. I have never had a noticeable problem with it ever.
