Balance Shaft Removal Kit

I am in the process of re-re-re building my engine for turbo. My shop has found a balance shaft removal kit for the H22. Not sure what brand it is, but has anyone had any experience with balance shaft removal kits in general w/ the H22? Once everything has been fully balanced, is it ok to remove the balance shafts? I've been told besides freeing up some power, the removal of the balance shafts will allow more oil supply to the crank, which I assume is a good thing. Please let me know of your personal experiences with these kits. Thanks.

http://www.kaizenspeed.com/ I have been running my car without the balancer shaft belt for the last 15,000 miles about 100 miles with the turbo so far.

The balance shafts counteract secondary vibrations that are "uncomfortable" for passengers in the car.
Make sure they put the bearings back in rotated to block oil flow.
Billy, (71DSP) makes a nice setup for a very reasonable price.

Wow, $110 isn't a bad deal. Looks nice too.

Can someone tell me the benefit of removing the shafts rather than leaving the belt off? Is it just to save weight and free up oil flow?

I have built an N/A H22 motor using the Kaizen speed kit. This kit is really good, and it worked great on our motor. Just be warned that the freeze plugs are friction fit, and it's a b1tch to get them pressed in without an actual press. I and a friend managed to do it with a sledge, but I wouldn't reccomend that way for anyone else.

No way, nowhere near that much. There is an N/A dyno in the N/A library if you want to see.

It's mostly for oil pressure. Oil pressure goes up a little bit, which is good. The shafts are both solid steel, so there is some weight savings by tossing them. I would guess 5-10 lbs.

I just yanked the belt off on my engine, I noticed hardly any difference in vibration, and its not a deep throbbing vibration like solid motor mounts, its more of a solid higher frequency vibration that would not cause rattles.. barely noticeable..

I did not pick up any hp at all with this though.. seems to rev quicker though in neutral (better throttle response)..
