Porsche 6 Cyl Harmonic Engine Failure performancedevelopments.com
The reality of the situation is that very few race engines using the 964 crankshaft keep the harmonic balancer. My race engine had the balancer but we decided to remove it because we wanted to slow down the fan some by going to a 125mm pulley. Before we did this I did some checking with guys that build 100+ HP per liter race engines to get their take on it. All of them said removing the harmonic balancer was not a problem.
