ASP 948584: Underdrive Crank & Underdrive Alternator Pulley (SFI Approved) (Racing) 1998-02 Firebird V8

Description

ASP 948584 - ASP Underdrive Crank & Underdrive Alternator Pulley SFI Approved Racing 1998-02 Firebird V8. What do Underdrive Pulleys do? Underdrive pulley systems increase engine horsepower by reducing the amount of power required to drive external engine accessories. For example, the alternator, power steering, water pump and air compressor rob horsepower from the engine. By replacing factory-sized crank and accessory drive pulleys with a resized pulley, the accessories are slowed, resulting in more horsepower available to the drive wheels. Typically, a set of Auto Specialties street pulleys will increase horsepower by 12-15, and increase mileage by 2 to 3 MPG. All pulleys are manufactured from Billet Steel or Aluminum, exceeding factory quality.

ASP LS1 underdrive pulley kit reduces parasitic power losses associated with high accessory speeds, freeing up additional HP. It also reduces the rotating inertia on the front of the crankshaft allowing for faster revving. We have seen just over 13 rear wheel hp increase with this kit installed on stock LS1s.

About ASP

History and information about ASP and their products.

ASP Underdrive pulley systems increase engine horsepower by reducing the amount of power required to drive external engine accessories. Auto mechanics use ASP underdrive pulleys as a replacement pulley that contains a different ratio and material specifications that free up lost horsepower. By using an ASP underdrive pulley, you are increasing the diameter of each accessory pulley and decreasing the ratio of the crank pulley. The speed at which the accessories are turning relative to the engine's rpm's decrease.

By installing a resized Auto Specialties Performance pulley, the accessories are slowed. This results in more horsepower available to the drive wheels. Typically, a set of Auto Specialties street pulleys will increase horsepower by 12-15, and increase mileage by 2 to 3 MPG.

Next they are machine lathed with specifications that can be tweaked to as little as .0003 thousandths of an inch for a perfect fit and then any necessary millwork takes place. And for the most important part, quality control procedures are tantamount at the facility safeguards are in place at all stages of the total operation to assure that the customer gets a product that is manufactured to perfection.

The ASP UNDERDRIVE CRANK AND UNDERDRIVE ALTERNATOR PULLEY that is SFI approved racing for your 1998-02 Firebird V8 can give you back some of the much needed horsepower that is stolen by your water pump, A/C compressor and power steering when powered by a factory installed pulley and as a plus you can see up to a 15 percent increase in horsepower with the underdrive pulley system. And for better performance in your Corvette consider the ASP Underdrive Pulley SFI Approved 25% Harmonic DAMPNER Crank for a reduction in crankshaft torsional vibration, greater valve train and timing efficiency and a reduction in wear to the car’s main bearings, oil pump and crankshaft.
