Has anyone here replaced their pullies? I've got a 330Ci, and I'm interested in the UUC pulleys that yield 4hp increase minimum all the way up to possibly 11hp increase. Just wondering if anyone has any experience with these pulleys at all? :idea:

Friend of mine who has a 328i did and he didn't think it was worth the money and the effort. PM him (Surk) for first hand opinion on this mod.

Saw a set of UUC pulleys going on ebay for 90.00$ US......
At that price I would buy them, but otherwise, I would spend money on something else, jsut not enough noticeable gain in horsepower.

Save your money on the pullies and get a Carbonio Intake or something else. Pullies are a good mod if you have done everything else and your looking for the very last little bit of power possible.

I did the RE pullies...and would definately do other mods first...not a substantial increase for $$

The only real gain you'll see is throttle response, a must if you change to close ratio tranny/lighter flywheel and track alot other then that the basics are far more useful.

From my experince you feel the pulley increase more than an intake, but thats just me.
M3 pullies are pretty good. I would get either BHS or Evosport ones. BHS is cheaper and you get the same thing, so that would be good choice. It will make your steering a little heavier.

i hv a 323ci and i was looking at that too. my friends told me they dont work really well plus it will shorten the life of the power steering pump and water pump.
