I just ordered Mr. Josh's pulley. What should I expect?

Expect what? The pulley should have a small groove so the pulley can seat nicely into the engine pulley position. You will need at least a 3 ft breaker bar and something/someone to have the brakes engaged (I used a wooden board to prop it) while you're trying to take off the 22mm (I think?) crankshaft bolt. The car will try to move forward/backward when you are trying to loosen the nut. The nut will need a bit of work and strength on it to loosen it up. Expect 1-2 hours installation time. I did mine by myself, but scratched a few fins on the back side of the radiator when trying to take out the fans. :eek: Sorry, I can't remember the torque range for the crankshaft pulley.

Does it make a noticeable performance difference?

The engine ran noticibly smoother (this was before the single point ground mod was done), and low range to midrange has noticibly more torque. My G-tech measured out an 8hp difference on one run. You can expect a good hp feel. I'm sure you won't be dissapointed. I wouldn't want to take it off if someone paid me $100. :p
