Grimmspeed Lightweight Crank Pulleys | Multiple Subaru Fitments (095015)
The OEM Subaru crank pulley has been a cause for concern ever since its original design. It is extremely heavy, susceptible to catastrophic failure, and quite unsightly. Continuing to use this on our cars just wouldn't do. Eliminating rotational mass while maintaining a safe presence canincrease reliability and bring faster Rev's! For our Lightweight Crank Pulley we pulled out all of the stops. CNC machined from 6061 T6 Aluminum our pulley makes no compromise. It weighs in at 3.5lbs lighter than OEM while at the same time increasing its durability. Marked with a timing mark and perfect cut keyway makes this install a breeze. We designed the pulley with the optimum weight for performance while avoiding misfire CEL's and engine hesitation.
Here at GrimmSpeed innovation is the standard with every product we release and our pulley is no exception. We have designed the only aftermarket pulley installation and removal tool that works with each style of OEM Subaru pulley as well as our aftermarket lightweight pulley. To take it one step further we have also designed the only compatible aftermarket stretch belt installation kit for all 2008+ Subaru Models.

Here is a note directly from SOA:
"Thank you for your patience as I checked with our Technical Services Department regarding your message below. They advised that the crank pulley is a pulley and nothing else. It is not used as a harmonic damper/balancer. Thanks for the opportunity to be of assistance. If you need any future assistance, please feel free to contact us again."
Best wishes, John J. Mergen

After searching threads I found that many tuners suggest a lighter crank pulley be installed when you install a lighter flywheel. With the lighter flywheel I got better response from the throttle, but have found the clutch engagement to be a little rough. What a differnce this pulley makes! I still get great throttle response (maybe a little bit better than before) and clutch engagement is way smoother. I am loving it!
I just bought this item and I'm happy with the quality.
