Among Mustang enthusiasts, there is a lot of talk about the mainstream performance parts such as turbochargers, superchargers, exhaust, suspension, and cold air intakes. What a lot of enthusiasts will forget is the supporting modification and drive belt system that is needed to help create big horsepower along with torque. Within the heart of a Mustang engine, many components help it run freely and powerfully. One of the essential things a Mustang owner can do to free up horsepower is by lightening up the pulleys within the drive belt system, including the crank pulley, water pump pulley, idler pulley, and more.
Some of these aftermarket pulleys are designed to reduce rotational mass to free up horsepower and torque in mind significantly. Especially when it comes to a supercharger set up, proper underdrive lifts will all the crankshaft to rotate more freely, which in turn will allow more horsepower and torque for the engine to produce. From the factory, they can be cumbersome and heavy. That is why Steeda has been offering a wide selection of underdrive pulleys to give enthusiasts the advantage at the track or on their favorite backroads.

Supporting modifications among Mustang performance parts are just as crucial to the main components. Superchargers, Turbochargers, and other performance enhancements put a tremendous strain on the drive belt system. The rotating assembly turns to drive all of your accessories, including the water pump, air conditioning, power steering, and oil pump. So the main reason to do this is to free up weight and rotational mass, which will give longevity and reliability for years to come. It will also do is get free horsepower unleashed from heavy pulleys that OEM manufacturers typically put there to add strength and rigidity.
Steeda has offered a wide selection of performance underdrive pulleys to allow enthusiasts to reach their Mustang's full potential of horsepower and torque. Most often, when people equip their pony with a supercharger more often than not, an enthusiast will have to upgrade to a crank pulley dampener, which will allow the crankshaft to spin more freely. It would enable the engine to run more efficiently and create more power for a longer time vs. if you had stock OEM components that are built for the standard application.
