Just picked up a 07 C6 !

I haven't been on here in a long time, but I'm back! I just got a 07 c6 and it seems like it has the z51 package. It has 100k on it but maintenance has been kept up properly. The only question I have is should I worry about the harmonic balancer? I want to get it replaced regardless just for a piece of mind. I hear everyone gets the ATI instead of OEM. Does anyone know a reputable shop that can get the job done right? Should I be driving a certain way to prevent the HB from wearing out until the replacement?

RACING...Because with baseball, football, basketball, tennis, and golf, you only need one ball

I used to think that I had learned patience as I got older. Then I realized that I just didn't give a shit

This is all I have for now, I’ll take more later! I also hear about torque tubes getting weak. Should I even drive it until I get those things replaced? >.< hahahaha

Smithers, unleash the hounds!
Edelbrock E-Force 1593 & Magnaflow exhaust for that healthy American sound. Before SC 354 RWHP, after SC 484 RWHP. That's all I can do and still pass California smog.
