Isn't it nice buying from smaller vendors, rather getting butt raped by the big name companies(***coughcough***STILLEN***coughcough***)

Build quality is top notch, and they're about 2-250 cheaper than the stillen ones. Only other option for headers is escort($1900:cwm22: ) or some ebay brand ones that i wouldn't touch with a 10' stick

Yea, i was definitely pleased with the quality. I might have to get some better pics to show how nice the welds are, and how thick the flanges are.

I'd swap the underdrive pulley for one with a larger pulley for the alternator. For the maxima they make one for standard max's, and one for supercharged max's. The supercharger version barely reduces the size of the smaller pulley. And most of the gain is from the aluminum versus steel pulley anyway. This way your battery and stereo are better able to keep a steady voltage.
Would you like a half smoke to go with that ubberwoofer?

The pulley only underdrives the accessories by like 10-15%, so I'm not worried about it. One company makes a complete set of pulleys that are also smaller to make up for the underdrive of the crank pulley, but they're like 300$

This pulley weighs ~3lb vs the stock 11 :)

The problem would be most evident at idle, in traffic.
