Is the W8 crank pulley / harmonic balancer unique to the W8, or are there other VW/Audi engines with a pulley that will fit?

When I look up the W8 part, it doesn't show any other models that share it.

Actually, I am interested in aftermarket "upgrades" such as Fluidampr. Of course, the W8 is too unique for them to have one for it, but Fluidampr does have parts for many other VW/Audi engines. Wondering if something will cross-reference.

The harmonic balancer is unique to the W8 engine. It may be unique because sandwiches the balance shaft pulley against the crankshaft. I believe the W8 is the only W-engine with the balance shaft setup.
