    Works Aluminum Crankshaft Pulley

    Kudos to user "Fit" for finding this!

    There's an outfit in Malaysia called MaxAudio that sells a Works Engineering crank pulley for the 3A92!

    Listed price is $90 (regular price $139 if that matters), DHL shipping to US is $25. If you use the discount code MAX-NEW-10 you can get a 10% discount. This brings the total shipped price to $106. I think that's a very reasonable price, and thus I ordered one.

    Their website is a little wonky and slow, be patient with it.

    I'll keep y'all posted on shipping progress, and the fun stuff when it arrives.

    After failing one payment method twice, I finally tried it through PayPal, and that works. I mentioned the funky website. It looks like the 10% discount was applied to the price in dollars (90), but the invoice is in Malaysian Rubles or something. So, they got the number "9" for the discount, but it's not dollars, it's MYR. Since the invoice is in MYR, the discount should have been applied to 369 MYR. So, I didn't get my full 10% discount. Whatever. (The numbers were correct when I used the other payment platform, but it hung up on the secondary verification... once because I made an error... and the second time because I had made an error on the first one... I got a text alert/confirmation request about the first one AFTER I had already submitted the second one. Wells Fargo was looking out for me.)

    Bottom line is that I paid $116.11. And the purchase is through PayPal, so if there's any wonkiness, I can dispute it.

    Glad to hear its shipped. Did you get any tracking info?

    They certainly don't seem in a hurry.

    I'm betting that they are made to order rather than stocked. That's fine, as long as the fitment is right.

    Yep, I have tracking!

    Dang, quick shipping! I don't have it yet, but tracking says it's in Clearwater as of 8:32 this morning... probably the last destination before delivery.

    Could you weigh the difference between them when you go to install them please? Maybe some side by side comparison pictures too?

    Yep. I'll inspect it, compare it, weigh it, measure it, and photograph it. And I'll try to get some acceleration testing done before and after. (I expect it will be a barely perceptible difference... but, every little bit helps)
