Several folks have underdrive pulleys, and they help free some power. Other than needing a different belt, no real downside.
Chrysler is the only source for the plastic intake - a dealer - yours or one like Wyckoff, or a speed shop should be able to get one for you.

For the plastic intake, go to http://www.haynesspeedshop.com and deal with Tommy Thrift. He is a parts manager at Haynes Chrysler in Richmond, and you will find NO ONE who has better customer service or lower prices on Mopar parts!

Some srt-4 people have claimed the udp has caused problems and took them off. You are only talking a few hp in the scheme of things so it's a choice that may not be worth it. [:I]

Using all uppercase letters is like shouting and is annoying. Tone it down please.

I have read this also, but i don't think this has been proven. Alot of those, were big turbo cars, which could have caused balance shaft failures. I have been running a udp for 2 years with no problems, but the gains were not that big. Good luck, Dale

I've got about 20k on mine. Only problem is a intermittant accessory belt squeal during damp weather. SEEMED to spool up a bit faster after the install but, that could have been the warm fuzzy new mod feeling
