Hi,
do you think that if a change the Pulley Kit on my base that will increase the hp and maybe gain .1 or .2 on the track :driving:

I already have a AEM SRI and magnaflow catback.

pullies aren't worth it. You're looking to add 1 - 2 hp max. I don't know about .1-.2 off your time, but I seriously doubt it. I think AEM is the ones out for the base RSX and those are the ones I'm referring to with hp. They make your engine look nicer though.

I don't know about unorthodox pullies. They're suppose to come out sometime soon and should be pretty good, but I won't get them unless I see some kind of dyno or have like 10 people actually say it's worth getting.

If you're looking to add hp or get a quicker time, I say get CAI and Revo SS. You will definitely lose at least .2

I seen them claim about 37 hp, but that's just advertising. I haven't actually seen anyone dyno after getting them, but even if there was someone that dynoed, the results will differ from the base rsx since. Besides they're only out for the type-s for the time being.

Unorthodox is worth it. The aem ones aren't. I did the unorthodox on my accord and I think it was one of the best upgrades. In order to get any power though you have to get the set with the crank and the powersteering and alternator pulleys in order to get the power you want. If you do the Ultra SS which aren't available just yet for the base model I would project that you will get approx. 10 whp. The gains of 37 horse are accurate but they or on a 300Z which is turboed. The crank pulley on that car weighs approx. 12.3 lbs and they cut it down to only 3.5 lbs. Lightening the rotating weight yeilds 2.7 hp per lbs. SO it is possible- but you won't see those kind of gains on a RSX

I'm also waiting for UR to come out with some pullies for our car too. Not much else I could do so might as well. I'll be a guinea pig and hope the results are worth the money. Going for these and maybe some skunk2 cams if they come out too.

When I first starting modding my car, I said i/h/e and hondata were the only things I were going to do...LOL...so much for that.
