Improve throttle response, horsepower at the wheels and your sense of adventure. With an entire series of black anodized, lightened Crank Pulleys from ALTA Performance it s easy to increase response, reduce drag and hit the road fast. The ALTA Performance lightened crank pulleys for the MINI Cooper R53 are engineered to reduce rotating mass, increasing horsepower and torque.
The ALTA Performance pulley achieves power and performance by reducing the rotating mass of the crankshaft assembly. Made from 6061T6 aluminum and weighing in at .65 lbs, the ALTA pulley is more then 2.3lbs lighter then the stock crank pulley. The ALTA pulley is not under driven and will not affect the life of your engine.
The reduction in weight is effectively the same power increase as removing 60 pounds of weight from your vehicle. The ALTA Performance pulley will not wear out engine bearings or the oil pump, and will not add any additional vibration or noise. Aftermarket under driven pulleys are prone to charging and driveability problems from being excessively under driven. The ALTA Performance lightened crank pulley will have no effect on your cars charging system.

ALTA Performance was founded in 1996 when owner Adam Taft, began to sell important performance parts from his parents’ architectural business in Beaverton, Oregon. Two years later, Adam rented space in a small retail store in an industrial part. It was at this point that ALTA Performance hired employees and began supplying inventory. Under the name ALTA Sports, it became the premier Honda tuning and aftermarket specialist in the Portland, Oregon area.
In 2002, ALTA Performance started offering aftermarket Subaru products because the Honda market became oversaturated. The Subaru products were so popular that the company dropped all its other ones. Jeff Perrin joined the ALTA staff as an installer and tech; at this time, ALTA began manufacturing some Subaru parts under the PERRIN brand name. PERRIN and ALTA parts were selling like hotcakes and the company was forced to move once again to a larger warehouse. ALTA Performance added new vehicle lines to its portfolio like the EVO and Scion.
In 2007, ALTA Performance purchased a 25,000 square-foot facility in Hillsboro, Oregon. With room to grow, the brand could now add more production and office staff. For the first time since ALTA started manufacturing auto parts, it had a real showroom for local customers to visit and an in-house dyno for testing and tuning. Today, ALTA Performance continues to grow and has come a long way since its inception in 1996, where all of its inventory literally fit on a baker’s rack.
