overdrive pulley (power steering)

Any other overdrive pulleys beside this genright one? It's says its 10% overdrive, I saw a few posts (like this one http://www.naxja.org/forum/showthread.php?t=1066143) and a few others that says this pulley is bs. Although it does look sweet, but I could care less. And the cooling fan thing is pretty bs too.

Anyways, I never use my ac and I already converted to E-fans & High flow Water pump. I was thinking of moving my alt to were my ac is, and getting a overdrive pulley.

Any thoughts on a good pulley choice and is this genright pulley just a for show bs pulley??

The improved steering at low speed is selling me for sure ... sure sounds nice. The thing is $100 so it's not really too expensive ... so bang for the buck you cant ask for toooo much i guess.

I don't see how it could help. A guy in that thread you posted from NAXJA said he measured both the stock pulley and the gen-right one and they were the same size.

Even if it does spin faster, would that cause premature failure of the P/S pump? I think for $129 you'd be better off putting that money towards a more powerful steering system.
