1. No it's not worth the money.
2. You won't gain anything out of it other than aesthetics.

Somebody will disect this a lot futher than I will and disagree but my reply is based upon a practicality basis. My advice is to save the $200-$300 towards prevenative maintenance with money leftover for an entry level detailing kit.

Power gains will not be huge, but you should notice your motor rev'ing quicker in 1, 2 and 3rd gear.
Like a lighter flywheel, these pulley kits are lighter than stock thus is easier to spin.

If you have the money for the bling, or have done all the other NA mods, then go ahead and get them. If this is going to be your first mod, then save your $$$ and get other mods done first.

Headers, light weight flywheel, Not to familar with the rotory motor, but I think you can port and polish and extrude hone the manifolds.
Aftermarket ECU with custom tune.
