The BPT underdrives dont come with the harmonic balancer, they are just the pulleys themselves.
You can get powerbond race balancers for a little over $200 these days, the street version would be even cheaper i'd assume.
That'd be the way i would go.

If you decide to go Powerbond, VPW do them for a good price.
I paid around 220 IIRC for my Powerbond Race balancer.
Part numbers are PB1084-ST for the Street balancer, and PB1084-SS for the Race balancer.

What is the difference between race and street? Race suitable for revs or something?

Street is nodular iron, race is forged steel and SFI certified.

Won't really make a difference power wise. It will just rev smoother.

Seeing that my rev limiter is factory stock, there is no point getting the "race" balancer then. Thanks for the insight BOTTLEDUP :)
