    Got my crank back from balancer today. We went from na rods to idit rods and and need a 100 grams of heavy metal added, and some welding added to the back.

    Just fyi if anyone is thinking about it

    Can you tell us where the weight was added and where the welding was done. Also what was the name of the shop balancing this. Thanks...

    So with taking a na crank and adding turbo rods and turbo pistons they said it was 100 grams out.

    But you have to remember the balance all the rods, all the bearings, all the rings, and all the pistons separately. Then the balance the crank to those adjusted weights.

    The had to add heavy metal slug to the front journal and weld in a hole in the rear
