I don't expect big FE bonuses or that it will pay for itself soon, but if the OEM pulley weighs 9lbs, machining off the PS and AC positions will cut maybe 5 lbs of completely useless rotational mass. Losing that weight has to mean something for my acceleration pulses during P&G.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
