balancer shafts

Is there a company that makes a kit to remove these from the H22a4. Or is it just easier to disconnect them and leave them in the block.

sure are. i'm pretty sure there's not enough room to pull them out with the engine still in the car tho, you can only do it w/ the motor outta the car. someone correct me if i'm wrong.

Not a noticeable amount. You gain a little oil pressure and minimal amounts of torque. Not really worth it unless it's a race engine.
Do you know why they're there in the first place?

One of the ones in the block I have is messed. A rod snapped and slapped the balancer and either bent or broke it. I havent tore it down enough to tell yet. I was just going to remove them cuz im building the motor to boost and want as much reliable power as I can get out of it, and less boost generally means more reliable. Expecially with a good tune.
