Pulley Kit/Upgrades Questions

So, I have a few questions about the pulley kits and upgrades to my 04 SLK 32 AMG.

- I live in Houston and although the car NEVER runs hot, I do notice a slight performance change when the heat soaks in. So I'm concerned that the pulley upgrade (slowing down water pump, a/c, alternator) will affect the cooling.

- Are cooling upgrades worth the cash and should I look at doing that BEFORE the pulley? Any recommendation on upgrades?

- Before I do upgrades up over 1k, are there any small upgrades that are worth doing assuming all else is stock?

- The pulley kits seem to be really pricey when it comes to Kleeman, and often the alternatives seem to be unavailable, does anyone know of anything current?

I've run a few searches on the forums, but I haven't found too much current info.

Thanks in advance,
