Do our cars have a harmonic balancer and if yes is it attached to the crank pulley? I haven't had a chance to install mine yet and I'm a bit reluctant after reading this: http://www.machv.com/tip11cranpul.html

"Performance enthusiasts have been known to remove harmonic balancers, usually when the balancer is attached to the crank pulley, deciding that they aren't necessary and their mass reduces the performance of the engine. However, this is unproven and potentially very risky because the danger of damage to the engine from the vibrations the damper is intended to prevent is too high."
