    Would this make a difference?

    As title says, would all of these combined actually have any effect on how power would be produced or anything that i could feel?

    Lightweight Bottom Pulley..
    Lightweight Crank Pulley..
    3 Inch Stainless Steel TopHat & PowerPipe (Replaces plastic/silicon hoses)..

    Or would it all be money wasted?

    Thanks!

    (On a 2006 Astra SRi 2.0 Turbo by the way...)

    If u get the stainless tophat and power pipe, make sure you install a powerflex lower engine mount bush aswell to prevent a cracked radiator... I found out the hard way :-(

    Did you run yours round the back of the battery and down the side of the rad?
