Nice drawing James.
i dont use it but its functional im doing all supporting mods first before i go turbo so that way when i start boosting i wont have any ill effectsthe best benifit is less rotating mass which means more hp. your also losing some overall weight with little to no downside.
just curious Marshall, why do you have alky injection if your N/A?
usually it's so that you can run a double roller T chain for a high rpm/spring pressure valvetrainSorry what is the purpose of removing the balance shaft??
the "vibration" is a rocking effect...low frequency at idle it's not in the frequency range that the piezo-electric knock sensors are tuned took so what exactly is to be gained from removing the bearing and if it causes slightly more vibration wont that give false readings to your knock sensor?
less rotating mass doesnt add Hp...it reduces rotating inertia which is one of the forces an engine must overcome to rev as fast as possible, it is improving performance for sure...but doesnt add Hp...it reduces the amount "wasted" to accelerate the mass of a 1 inch radius steel shaft (which isnt a whole lot of rotating inertia...now if it was the same mass but with a 2 inch radius...thats a significantly larger amount of rotating inertia, but as we all know... every little bit helps...the best benifit is less rotating mass which means more hp. your also losing some overall weight with little to no downside.
