The parts for the V8 FSI S5 were what I ordered.
As far as the pulley, there is a lil more of a snappy response, more noticeable with the AC off. When I did lightweight pulleys on my Nissans in the past, chirping the tires were easy, even goin into 2nd. But don't expect chirping in the Touareg... ?
As far as sound from the spacers, I'd have to say no. The gutting of my intake boxes were what affected that the most.
As far as the installation processes, the manifold by far, is more time consuming. The pulley really is as easy as...
Move tensioner to allow belt removal
Unscrew bolts holding pulley on
Transfer guide pin from OEM to JHM
Bolt JHM pulley on
Should be under an hour worth of work...
