Go Fast Bits Power-Up Pulley Kit - Nissan Pulsar SR20DE FWD

Go Fast Bits Power-Up Pulley Kit - Nissan Pulsar SR20DE FWD
I was a bit alarmed by the review posted previously on this web-site so I actually went to the source and asked GFB for some advice on their product as I was very keen on the pulley. They were very helpful and responded professionally. This is the response that I got:

We have indeed rectified the problem; interestingly not a single SSS owner who has our pulley has ever brought the problem to our attention.

Of course, all the testing we did didn't show a problem as it
takes a while for the wear to occur, and even then the wear occurs at different rates depending on the condition of the oil seal.

One thing though is that vibration cannot be caused by the pulley - they are balanced and wear due to the oil seal is nothing more than a small circumferential groove - balance is certainly not an issue. When rotating mass is reduced, the natural engine vibration will be more noticeable, because there is less resistance to the individual pulses on the crankshaft with each power stroke - you will certainly notice this effect when installing a lightened flywheel. This is not a problem, it is simply like firming up the suspension bushes in your car - more of the vibration that is already there will be felt through the cabin.

Our latest batch of pulleys now features a steel sleeve on the surface where the oil seal runs to protect the aluminium, so no wear problems will occur.

When installing the pulley it is good practice to replace the oil seal at the same time.

Go Fast Bits Power-Up Pulley Kit - Nissan Pulsar SR20DE FWD

Go Fast Bits Power-Up Pulley Kit - Nissan Pulsar SR20DE FWD
Pulley comes as described. Its very light and smaller than stock. Engine feels freer and revs more easily. Acceleration is improved slightly. Engine noise is increased as there is no rubber to insulate vibrations on the back of the pulley as per stock. The anodised finish looks nice but will begin chipping off within 10,000km. Installed at 98,000Km by mechanic, engine started leaking oil from timing cover seal at 108,000Km. Removed pulley to find a groove had been worn into the back of it. Replaced timing cover seal and put pulley back on. Oil leak continued. Replaced timing cover seal again and installed original harmonic balancer/crank pulley. No more oil leak.
This product performs as described however will not last. The aluminium is too soft.
