I heard that there are some being developed for the Fusion. I was on a Mazda 6 message board and read somewhere that Using under drive pulleys and replacing crank dampener with a lighter on will cause engine wear. Something to do with the duratech engine requiring a dual mass dampener. Is this going to be a similar problem with the Fusion?

I just purchased a Fusion SEL two weeks ago and was planning out some mod for it. Right now I am looking at one of the computer tuners, some sort of Air filter or intake and under drive pulleys if the prove to be a worth while investment. Right now I am in the Research phase. I understand the part are not available right now (Nothing New had a New 98 Z-24 and be through this process before) Just looking for info. Thanks in advanced!

We are considering making underdrive pulleys, i already have an OEM one in my hand and have been speaking to manufacturers, but i would need to have a few preorders in before i could produce them, since i would have to order so many, being a custom production

Are these going to be lighten too or are they just undersize to reduce rotational speed of the acessories? If the are lighter too Will this effect the engine harmonics? I heard that the earlier ford Durtech V6 needed the Dual mass dampeners to prevent the engine from vibrating at the higher RMP Range.

it looks like we will be going with aluminum. I will probably be using a company that has already developed a duratec pulley for the escape that is working well now, the swap to the fusion will just be some specification changes pretty much.

The only reason i havent already done it is i just havent seen the market for it yet.
