Regain Lost Power. Get back the power and torque your belt-driven accessories steal. As hard as it may be to believe, you can regain from 8 to 10 “free” horsepower with Steeda’s underdrive pulleys. These pulleys reduce engine parasitic drag from your accessories by about 25% and even improve fuel economy.

Superior Materials. Steeda underdrive pulleys are manufactured from nodular iron, and far exceed the quality of the factory pulleys. The one-piece crankshaft pulley uses a high-tech injection molded bonded rubber damper, making it far more durable than other manufactures "piggyback style" underdrive pulleys.

SFI Approved. Steeda underdrive pulleys are SFI approved for use by all major race sanctioning bodies.

Application. These Steeda Underdrive Pulleys are specifically designed for use on the Late 2001 to 2004 4.6L V8 GT Mustangs.Re-uses factory serpentine belt.

Note: Coupon codes cannot be applied to this product.

Technical Note. Midway through the production run for the 2001 model year Ford changed the design of the water pump on the 4.6L engine. The older style pump produced from 1996 to mid 2001 had a longer shaft. In January of 2001 the design of the pump was changed to a shorter shaft. This necessitated a change in the design of the pump pulley.

Will this work with a Mach 1000 radio option? My 2003 GT came with a Mach 1000 radio option. Will using the underdrive pulleys affect the radio and other electrical needs of the car adversely?


  • I would say you should get an upgraded alternator. The mach 1000 takes a lot of electricity to power it with peak power of 1140 watts will drain batteries quickly.

Do I need to buy a more powerful alternator when fitting these pulley's as some of the comments suggest? I recently bought a remanufactured stock alternator and I want to know if that is good enough for this pulley.


  • They will work great if you don't have a big sound system. The only time they will show a low charge is at idle,But if your alternator is working properly you will not have a problem.

    Steeda Underdrive Pulleys

    I have a highly modified 4.6L two valve drag car, that I also keep legal for the street. Because of my speed in the quarter mile I must use SFI rated parts for safety. Steeda parts, are always of the highest quality and meet the highest design standards, often working with Ford in design. Installation is straight forward, a trick to use when loosening the alternator nut is to loosen it while the serpentine belt is on, this also works with the water pump bolts. After loosening the bolts you can remove the serpentine belt. Pulling the old balancer is straight forward, put your car in gear with a standard transmission and with a puller that you can get, from a lot of auto parts stores, by borrowing their tools, remove the old balancer. Use the Steeda supplied torque specs and its an easy job that can be done in a little over an hour. Since under drives are larger than factory pulleys, always check for clearance and anything that can rub on the serpentine belt. I had to trim a protruding stud, with my Dremmel tool.

    highly impressed

    super easy to install, than again i am a tech, but would be super easy for anyone with proper tools, aka an impact and pully remover. i was very impressed with the mid range power gain. low end torque was increased some and also with throttle responce, but the mid range power was pretty noticable, i would definantly reccomend this to any mustang owner inless you plan to put boost to your motor because you wont be able to run as much psi with underdrives. thanks AM

    Great product

    Pretty simple instructions, easy install, and great gains from it through mid rpm range and higher. I drive an auto and now it feels like it has so much more left at the higher rpms. And as always American Muscle is the best!

    Definitely worth it

    These pulleys were easy to put on. The only challenge is taking the old pulleys off. Heres a tip, remove the radiator overflow tank (just remove 3 nuts and swivel off to the side) and the fan ( 2 bolts, and a little wiggling) and use an impact wrench on the crank pulley as well as the alternator.

    Steeda Good,Pullys bad

    I bought theses pullys and AM shipped them very fast. The pullys do give good HP gains. My problem was that I had to get a new alternator. So paying 200 for the pullys and another 200 for an alternator is not worth the power gains. AM is a great place to shop for your stang I just dont want people to have to go throught what I did for these.

    Quick RPM Jump

    Hi guyz this is my very first MOD for my 01 GT. I dont know much about these cars yet, but I managed to install these Pulleys easily. Right after installation RPM jumps quick and car is more responsive. So far my AC/Power Steering and all the other accessories work fine. There is a noticable gain in acceleration, BUT NOT A LOT.

    Smart Money on this product! Do not go with Piggy back system

    I gained approximately 2 mpg and I would say 10 hp. The car revs quicker. Excellent quality and everything fit perfectly. The new belt rides smoothly right down the center. I would not waste my time on the piggyback aluminum products. This crank pulley is built with the harmonic balancer as one unit. Ford helped Steeda design this setup. Read the instructions, have all the right tools and be able to work from under the vehicle.

    Must Have

    I never write reviews. The alternator was hard to get pulley off of. The performance is better than expected. It is worth it in time and effort. I can't stop driving her now. My 04GT is smooth and as silk. Have someone along during replacement to assist.

    These pullys were a great addition to my 03 GT didnt see much of a gain in power but are a very goodproduct. The best part is the crank pully isnt a piggyback system like other kits.

    Steeda Underdrive Pulleys, 04 GT

    The product arrived promptly, looked like the high quality product I would expect from Steeda and installation was easy. I immediately noticed that when idling in drive and particularly when the ac is on the lights dim. It did not take much of a raise in RPM to brighten them back up but it was quite noticeable. I replaced the Steeda alternator pulley with the OEM pulley and this helped but there is still a slight dimming in lighting when at idle and the automatic transmission is in drive. American Muscle told me my battery was probably weak. I have not had any previous issues with my battery or charging system but am currently trying to determine my next move. I hope I do not have to purchase a higher amperage alternator because of my choice to use underdrive pulleys.

    Great addition

    These pullies gave my motor that brand new pep feeling from a dead stop. I haven't seen any gas mileage gain, it might be because I can't keep my foot out of it. These are a great bolt on addition and AM got them to me quick fast and in a hurry!

    Getting the old pulleys off was a bit of a pain, especially the dampener. Putting them on was easier than expected and took about an hour-hour and half taking my time, cleaning things as I went. Felt a difference of maybe 10hp at higher rpms. Steeda's the way to go, don't go with "piggy-backs".

    Good Product

    Good quality part. Steeda has been making performance parts for mustang for a long time and they really kno what they r doing. These pullies run alot stronger than stock, no wobble. Didnt feel to much along the lines of power or throttle response but still a good quality product.

    Probably the best bang for the buck engine bolt on I\'ve bought. Noticeable increase in low end power. This with a cold air intake and catback exhaust cut half a second off my quarter mile.

    2004 Mustang GT

    A few snags in the removal of old pulleys: Even with an impact wrench, surface rust on the alternator bolt made removal difficult. The alternator bolt is standard 13/16 or 15/16. There are three tapped holes on the dampener you can use to mount a harmonic balance puller tool. I would recommend cleaning the threads with a tap first! Otherwise use a three-jaw puller. The install of the new Steeda pulleys went smoothly. They look great, especially the dampener. I noticed an improvement in low and mid band power, the engine also responds quicker.

    hands down, Steeda is the best company to go with as far as pulleys go. I definitely felt a power difference, especially in the low torque range. The car runs a lot better as well, i can actually feel that reduced engine speed giving the car more life. All in all, its a great product and I would definitely buy it all over again. Changed my mustang and also gave it double its life. Minimum power gains i got was I think 11 RWHP. If your looking for pulleys, this is the best and right one.
