What harmonic balancer to get?
It’s time to change my harmonic balancer on my g8. Ive looked up and saw people went with a few brands such as Slp, ATI, powerbond and fluidampr.. any suggestions on which one I should get??
Do i need to buy any special belts for it or retune it at all after the replacement?Check out ATI* harmonic balancers.

Do you have issues with the a/c throwing belts with the stock ac tensioner ?While I have the same damper , the one thing that I dont like is when they designed it to fit the tight confines of a Corvette they use all flat head countersunk hardware.
Now it might be guys not torquing correctly but there has been more than one instance of the hardware coming loose in Corvettes.
To that end I machined and added the three " missing" bolts.
In other applications where the three extra bolts are there ATI says never to run without them !

How does the dampener replacement impact the variation ? I'm running an ATI, had it off for two cam swaps (It's pinned), have not performed this calibration. Can it be done with HP tuners? What is downside of not doing?Remember to do a
Crankshaft Position System Variation Learn
after balancer replacement
I agree, I do not see the reason for the calibration on the l76/LS2, maybe another LS variation. The install process is L76 specific, does not call for the relearn.I see you highlighted it
Unless some one cam explain the correlation,
I submit the instructions are some what general and may encompass some engines where there the damper has involvement due to reluctor placement.
Happy to be shown I am incorrect but need more than " because they say so"
Was there any extra hardware needed to be purchased? And Did you need to purchase the ac holden bracket as well or it held up with the stock one? Ill be ordering this because i see everyone else uses them on tooI used this one on my recent build.
A little pricey though.
