Just a quick hello and thank you from a new(ish) member. I've surfed the forum for quite a few years for DIY and troubleshooting info. I'm finally getting around to filling out my profile because I'm really close to pulling the trigger on a pulley kit and am looking for feedback and tips. I love driving the car in the summer, but coming out of a Focus ST as my primary car (and a wrx before that, and an hhr ss before that), I'm looking for just a little more torque.

Background, my sister bought the car new and drove it. Like, drove it drove it. So it had some wear and miles on it. In 2010 I bought it from her in California and drove it home. I've put about 12,000 miles on it in the last 8 years, including the 2300 miles from California to Michigan. Not ideal for hauling the dog and useless in Michigan winter, but I try to drive it whenever I can between May and October. That's about it!

If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable or to ‘edit’, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM/edit. You can always pm a moderator.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
