Re: Engine Balance

umm heaps of people do engine balancing... and yes they are definitely worth it... but really depends on how you are going to use the engine, if its just going to be a chugger (low revs) I prob wouldn't do it, but for any high perf engine, I would always.

Re: Engine Balance

umm well you gotta pull the engine to bits... wouldn't have a clue how much they cost... and I'd only do it if you were building the motor at the same time, not pulling it out just to do that

Re: Engine Balance

balancing is a very good idea if you do any rebuild. 6 cylinder cost about $240 and you have to give them the balancer and flywheel or flex plate.
