I would go with the timing adjuster.

I would go with the pulleys. I like my densecharger, but I don't think it made as much of a difference as the steeda pulleys did. The pulleys are a guaranteed ~8rwhp on our modular powered stangs. The Timing adjuster can allow you to tune for your specific application, but there is also more room for error(too much timing or not enough to make much of a difference).

Good luck.

Pullies gave me 3rwp gain on the dyno, the T/A gave me 10rwhp. Just some justification as to why I recomended what I did.

I would get all 3.....thats what I did
If I could only afford one of them, i would of have gotten the pullies first, then T/A, then densecharger. Hope that helps....

definetly the pullies and timing adjuster. the timing adjuster made a BIG difference in low end torque which is what we need, especially if you have stock differential gears. The pullies should be put on at the same time to save time/money in labor since you have to take the crank pulley off to install either.

I would do the T/A first was well, I have all you mentioned except the pullies and more and I think the T/A was well worth it. I haven't done the pullies (not sure if I am going to) BUT the T/A install is extremely easy and you do not have to remove the Crank Pully.

ammaddon, why wouldn't you get pulleys? Thank you.
Sorry for the off-topic reply.

i thought you had to take off the pulley to install the t/a on it? i must of been mistaken..I didn't install mine.

Pulleys first , that way the TA install will be much easier and you won't have to do it twice.

I do a lot of city driving, I like my ac on and I love my stereo loud, smalled pulleys in a stop and go type setting are a strain on the altenator and battery. I did pullies on another car I had and ended up going through altenators like crazy. I think if you go with a top end battery like an optima or something it's ok, I just don't want to spend the 169 to get one plus pullies.

i do alot of city driving to, with a/c, radio, lights, etc. The difference was that before the pulleys with all the accessories on at idle the guage would be on the "M", now it's on the "R", Thats only at idle though and once you raise the rpm's even the slightest bit the guage jumps back up. Pulleys should actually put less wear on accessories since they're not spinning as fast as they were with stock pulleys.
