Under drive pulleys. 5-10 rwkw gained for fitting those. Under $400 fitted.

Need to know your definition of cheap however.

I wouldnt pay anywhere near $400 for underdrives man.
Should be able to get a set for under $200 (as per recent group buy) and fit them in 20 mins yourself.

Your right Jeff. BPT sell them for $280 for the race series ones where you can use your standard belt. Fit them yourself and save the extra $120 labour.

Contact our site sponsor BPT.

They can supply with the pulleys and tell you exactly how to install them correctly.

G'day dawso! Welcome to FM. Always good to see new members from Newie/Hunter area. There's talk of a mod day for Newcastle pretty soon, but there's a few cruises and car shows on in the next couple of months, so we are just trying to squeeze it in somewhere. Another FM member from Kurri (Banarcus) has underdrive pulleys fitted to his Wagon and he is gunna let me try them on the lane, so you could join us and see them being removed and fitted and vice-versa :lol: Keep your eyes peeled for a date soon, there are quite a few of us newie memebers with the 5.0L 8's you can pinch some ideas from.
Cheers,
Mick

No problem mate! Have a read through some of the build threads in the Garage section. There are plenty of people doing some good things with their 8's.
