Harmonic Balancer Question

Wanting to put a new balancer on my car and there seem to be multiple diameters available. As I use my car for track days I don't want to spin the accessories any harder so what's the stock size and if I want to slow things down a little do I go smaller or larger? I think I go larger. Also brand suggestions are welcomed.

Re: Harmonic Balancer Question

A smaller one will slow things down (I can always remember this because if you want more boost you put a smaller pulley on the blower or a bigger pulley on the crank)

I believe there are some threads on here that give the diameter of the stock crank pulley. I believe the ATI super dampner is supposed to be good along with innovators west, I believe theres also a cheaper one but drawing a blank on the name.

Also, its just a dampner, not an actual balancer

I was trying to remember when I overdrove the SC on my T-Bird and I thought I went larger on the blower. Guess I had it backwards.

If you use under drive pulleys don't go cheap. Buy the Steeda kit. They are the only kit that is SFI approved. You can find a set on ebay that is scratch and dent for a good price.

Not wanting UD pulleys just a replacement balancer of the same diameter or very slightly underdriven.
