I purchased the 2.4 stage 1 combo on black friday, I just finished the break in period on the spectrum tuner and I must say I'm pretty impressed. Throttle response is better, car pulls harder (especially 3000 rpm+) and fuel economy seems to be improving.
I attempted to install the pulley on the weekend but I couldn't get the bolt off from the stock one. I booked an appointment with my local performance shop next monday to get it installed. I was examining the pulley last night and noticed that there was an indentation on the outer lip of the pulley that looks like it could be a chip.
I was hoping
or someone else could chime in and let me know if this is normal or if I would experience any adverse affects (being off balance, issues with the belt) because of this.

Looks like a timing mark to me......
I'm quite sure it's supposed to be there. I have no idea if the timing can or ought to be adjusted on these new cars but back in the day, you could change the timing on your engine to improve performance. you had to use a timing light. the mark represents what is called top dead center or TDC. there should be a gauge, an arrow or some kind of stationary marker on the engine, when these two marks are lined up, your number 1 piston is all the way up to the top of the stroke. the exhaust valve has just closed and the intake valve is starting to open. At least that's how it used to work.
Now days, it's probably more a mark to allow you to know when you are at TDC for maintenance. the pulley can only go in one way. the keyway ensures the pulley, the crank and all the mechanicals of the motor are aligned. there is a front and back to the pulley but that should not be too difficult to identify.
Hope that helps.

If nothing changes, nothing changes!
Life is too short to drive a boring car!
Looks like timing or used for balancing, it's too smooth to be a chip
You might have to apply some heat from a blow torch or something or that nature. I had the same issue getting mine off and it took me probably 3 times before I finally got it.

There is some details on it there. But it is because they began using locktite or some type of glue and it needs to be heated so that it will let the bolt go. Once it gets to the right temp, it comes right out.
