search the forums, theirs hundreds of topics
but to sum it up, they are a smaller diameter harmonic balancer then the stock one, this reduces the power to your accessory (alternator, air-con, water pump, steering). this power that is taken away from the accessory is put back into your drive train. from what i've heard their is no significant affect on accessory however they do add a nice performance upgrade to the car. so in other words it's a win-win mod that's not to expensive.
ebay claims that they can give up to 15rwkw's, i personally believe that's horse s**t, i reckon about 7-9 would be more accurate (if any one wants to prove me wrong please do, as it will speed up me buying one :P ).
