Thats an 'underdrive' pully not just a lightweight pully its a different diameter.
Personally i don't like them, they just don't balance as good as the standard ones.
You can get better ones than the one you had pictured though.

That's the term under drive !. Sorry been a while since I researched them.
Some love them some don't!. Think marco used one with no problems.
Just to confuse you.
Not trying to put a downer on your purchase just be sure your 100 confident it it's fitment before fitting.
Maybe start a convo on the mx3.com fb page and get some reviews from users
wow that conversation is a ball ache, will do the mx3.com chat first

You have to grind off some off the alloy block around where the pully goes, and some of the plastic cambelt cover to fit the underdrive pully and you need to buy a different length alternator belt (which probestore sell). I would also use a small amount of locktight on the pully bolt (not much though).
That underdrive pully you have looks like one of the cheap ones though, there is a couple of better quality ones you can get. I'd need to see a pic of the other side to know for sure what yours is.
Some info on good vs bad pully:
You can tell if its an 'EBAY' one because its just a universal pulley with the trigger plate added to the back. You can visibly tell that the trigger plate is seperate to the pulley. On the good ones they are designed for the mx-3 and the trigger part is built in to the pulley. I can personally vouch for the fact that the cheap ones will come apart!! Mine lasted less than 1000 miles!!!
You can also get lightweight pulleys that are not also underdrive pulleys.
Here are some fitting pics to give you an idea whats involved:
ok it is a cheapy then, think ill leave it off lol
Thanks for your help guys :respect:
Took her out for a spin sunday as it was a nice day and it was booked for a promo shoot with some local club sponsors so a great day all round will pos some pics when they get released back to me :)
Anyway sitting in a garage hasnt been great and found some new things to do, passenger wheel arch liner is rubbing so I need to look at that and the power steering is properly intermittent on tick over, like almost nothing there yet with higher revs its fine, could be slightly damaged inside :(
