What is the scoop on the differences between the 07 and 08 harmonic balancers? Any other drivetrain differences between the 07 and 08?

The biggest difference is the weight. It is alot less on the 08.
I had the FRPP supercharger upgrade installed and it is required for the warranty. Price was about 325.00.

2007 balancer is 22lbs.

2008 balancer is 9.7lbs.

Evo alum is 11 lbs., but also can add up to 4 lbs. boost.

The balancer looks pretty well buried in the car, how hard is it to change out?


Removing both belts and getting a puller on it?

You need the HP Digital Flywheel Damper Removal Tool, complete with Fetzer Valve and Conklin Sprocket. With the right tool it is a 5 minute job, otherwise it'll take about 2 hours. :cool:

Not bad at all....The puller was the easy part, the A/C line was a pain...just in the way...
The bolt is on there real good....
I did the hole job from the top...no real need to jack up the car other than to look at the alignment of the belts...

Do you have a pic of the type puller used?

Or is it a standard pulley puller?

Did you just use an impact to remove bolt or is that a no no?
