Some prefer to buy the harmonic balanced one (aftermarket) for high HP builds just to be extra safe. Unless the pully is not balanced at all, you should be fine. Our motors are mechanically balanced with the offset piston layout. The OEM pully is not a harmonic one, although there is rubber for a dampening effect for a 'smooth' feel. Same with why most bushings are soft and all these companies want to sell you harder ones to 'upgrade' but you get more noise, harness and vibrations (NHV) in the car.

Long story short, I run pulleys on all my Subarus' (6)

Small update. 04 STI crossmember installed. I found a used one on ebay and gave it a fresh coat of chassis paint. Remaining subframe components are on order along with a new steering rack. Harness is off at iWire getting merged. So much waiting...

Nice work. The parts look real clean and like new!

Inspiration for me to get to work and finally install the Cusco rear LSD and clean up the housing before putting it back.
