Question about 2012 Honda Accord - Coupe, 3.5L V6 - Pro-Kit Lowering Springs
The pros to doing this are that it is an easy way to gain a little power, the cons are that whatever you put them on are now running slower than they were so they will not be as efficient as they were. The alternator won't charge as well, the power steering system won't have as much assist, etc. Some might be more noticeable than others. If you have a stereo system in the car with amps and subs, it would definitely be a drain on the charging system but if there aren't any accessories installed like that, it shouldn't be a large change. I'd go for it since it's an easy reversal if you don't like it.

Testimonial: "Many Thanks "forddoc94," no big stereo, have LED fog lights, turn signals front and rear, backup lights, interior. And my car is an Automatic. Can also go with LED's on my side markers too. Oh and my rear lights have LED's in there also. I also assume that the AC would also take a hit somewhat. I live in Iowa, and the humidity does get high also. My Honda Dealer was adamantly against putting it on, "what if your water pump goes out, what if you need to change your Timing belt." All kinds of "what if's." My comment back was "What if your Aunt had Nuts, then he would be your Aunt." :) They also brought out a 5 foot breaker bar they said they use to remove the nut on the pulley. I didn't understand that, unless it would crack while installing. Plus I found a Federal Law that protects us "upgrader's" that says if something goes wrong with your vehicle, the Dealer has to prove that the after market item caused a failure relating to an after market part. I can't think of it off hand, but will look for it. Thank You very much for your answer, as the pulley has been in a box since June of 2012. Have a wonderful New Year. johne"
