Underdrive pulleys on straight six??

Just interested if underdrive pully would be able to go onto inline 6 cyl, i cant think of a reason why they wouldnt, has anybody thought of doing this? What sort of power gain would be achieved.

BPT were investigating to see if any gains could be made from underdriving the i6, not sure how it's going.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>

Yes I heard BPT were doing underdrive pulleys for the BA 6. I think it would be great for both the N/A XR6 to get underdrives as a well needed power upgrade, and the XR6T to get them to help get up to boost quicker.

Hi Kerry, i think BPT were looking at more than just the Barra 6.
we were looking foward to trying them on my brothers AU6.
the market for these would be much bigger in the E-series and AU series i6 cars than the Barra 6.
