Air conditioning, electricity, power steering... There are many systems on your vehicle that have to be driven off of the engine, and there is no way to provide power for these auxiliary systems other than sapping power from the engine. The auxiliary systems on your vehicle get there power by using belts hooked up to a pulley on the engine, and these belts turn the accessories, giving them power. The accessories draw a great deal of power from your engine that would otherwise be available to drive the wheels. While you cannot eliminate the accessories, you can gear then down a bit with AEM performance pulleys. AEM performance pulleys are sized differently than your stock pulleys, which reduces the parasitic effect of your accessory systems. These lightweight pulleys are manufactured out of 6061 T-6 billeted aluminum and toothed to prevent premature belt wear. If you are looking to wrestle every last bit of power from your engine, than the AEM performance pulleys are a great addition. They are fairly simple to install for a competent mechanic, and you will be thrilled with the power than you have made available to drive the wheels forward.
