I've had both the Ati and Fluidampr. Even the first generation one aluminum Fluidampr. The steel version you show is their best offering. Uses the OEM belt, and will last "forever" and never need rebuilding.

The ATi is "hone to fit" style, some heat helps but it's a lot more snug. I never ever found this necessary on our engines, and a lot of people making over 1000hp aren't complaining.

Plus, every decade or so, the rubber ring in the ATi should be replaced/rebuild the unit. The LSX folks have already broken ATi crank pulleys, but those are different design than the JZ.

As stated, it may be possible to sit an engine a little lower, I'm not sure on that.

I've chosen to use the Fluidampr for its simplicity, longevity, ease of service, and keeping the OEM belt. It still has provisions for a dry sump pulley, you just have to call.

I even made a 36-1 trigger wheel for a Fluidampr.

You really can't go wrong either way.

Only gripe is the degree marks on the Fluidampr, but it's easy enough to figure out. I painted the TDC mark on the pulley.

thanks for the reply I have had both on other engines, I have never really had any problems, I'm new to the 2jz, learning slowly does that look like the right part number?

Yes, that is the correct part number.

Like I mentioned, I'd go 15 or 17, choose one downside rather than some of both IMO. Dig the bronze, I went with a flat gold myself.

Rota is a brand with good selection for our cars.

I found my wheels by accidentally landing on an eBay store that had some customer returns which were unused but couldn't be sold as new. All 4 cost me $400 delivered. Give them a look: http://www.ebaystores.com/aspecwheels

LOL I saw some post on some other forum where the guy was apparently hardcore dedicated to anti-Rota. I thought "I have better stuff to worry about".

Keyword on that shirt: ego.

Speedhut.com also makes a digital-to-mechanical speedo converter. Digital signal in one end and mechanical speedo cable out the other. I haven’t tried it but looks to be an elegant solution.
