Well, I officially have a running car now with no balance shafts!!! Filled it up with oil today and took it for a test drive. It is noticeablly quicker. Not really in 3rd (highest I went). 1st and 2nd it pulls VERY strong though now.
One side note, my car now takes 6 qts of oil. Oil changes are gonna be expensive now!! 6 qts, at $4.50/qt!!! Makes me think I should go back to dino oil. Write-up is coming!
5 1/2 qts did not even fill up to the "min" on the dipstick. It took 6 qts to get half way between the min and max on the dipstick. The balancer is huge, theres no wonder it takes more oil now. I just made a lot more room for itBarry said:
