Need new harmonic balancer for supercharged 302

I took a look at my current harmonic balancer and its looking pretty rough, definitley think it would be a safe idea to get a new one since I don't want to grenade my engine the first time I take it out.

What are everyone's suggestions for a good VALUE balancer. I don't want the cheapest or most expensive. Say under $300 what is the best value balancer I can get without risking my engine or bank account lol

I have an IW with the bigger hub. I never have to look at it again. I’ll be dead and it’ll still be balancing. Seal wasn’t too hard I just used a socket and went in till it was flush. Just tap tap tap.
I still have nightmares of the noise of all that metal bouncing off the road and my undercarriage. I agree, 0/5 starts LOL. Ive had some pretty spectacular failures since ive been building these cars.
Same. Was cruising at 40mph in the city and the serp/blower pulley from ASP sheered/cracked and fell off. I was even more stupid waiting for traffic to clear so I could retrieve the gigantic hunk of metal before someone hit it. Now I torque my tensioner to as light as I can without any slip. Around 65ft-lbs.

I’m in the process working with a machine shop to save cobra lower pulley cages without going Metco when bushings fail in them. Hopefully it’s a hit and I can market what we’ve made.
