Power steering pump pulley recommendations

Looking to replace the stock 5in power steering pulley for a 4.5in pulley. Anyone have any comments on how much of an improvement I'll see, and was it worth the roughly $35/40 increase in cost over a stock plastic special? Also anyone know of any other more "cost effective" brands other than PSC that makes a 4.5in TC style pump pulley?

Re: Power steering pump pulley recommendations

I'm running the PSC 4.5" pulley and it does make a difference when crawling. The smaller pulley allows the pump to spin faster/ build more pressure at engine idle rpm, improving the ability to steer in 4Lo crawling scenarios.
