Not trying to thread hi-jack but any info will benifit us all right.
because your motor gets balanced to how the pulley is.... when you go to another pulley like a lightweight.. it unbalances the motor and could screw it upi heard its not good to put crank pulleys or light wieght alternator and powr steering pulleys on high mile motors....why?
lets review, your going to damage your crank, but not only that, in the pursuit of an extra half horsepower, you weakened the pulley to the point where now you have to worry about it breaking and taking out the timing belt, along with the head as well.wow, you guys are going to love my pictures when the car is done.
I have an eGay $20 aluminum underdrive crank pulley, milled the 2 unused teeth sets (teeth for p/s, a/c belts) and tonight I took the end mill and put 8 holes going parallel with the bolt.
It weighs .61 pounds.
When any of this BS actually happens to my motor, then I will believe any internet RUMOR on here. I have been 35,000 miles with 0 problems, I will let that speak for itself.lets review, your going to damage your crank, but not only that, in the pursuit of an extra half horsepower, you weakened the pulley to the point where now you have to worry about it breaking and taking out the timing belt, along with the head as well.
Transzex knows what hes talking about. This has been covered so much. There is a reason the harmonic damper is there, Honda didn't just feel like spending that much extra money in design/production of their crank pulley!
