Under drives are good, but be sure to upgrade the oil pump at the same time.

Two reasons to upgrade the oil pump - extra revs, and underdrives.

The under drive balancer, is lighter than the factory one, thus can't balance the crankshaft as well - resulting in more vibrations. As the stock pump is made from sintered metal (effectively metal powder that's squashed together). The aftermarket pumps are made from milled solid billet metal.
