The Damond Motorsports Balance Shaft Delete allows for the removal of the factory balance shaft assembly found on many Mazda and Ford 4 cylinder engines. Deleting the balance shaft will allow your engine to rev quicker/easier, bumps up horsepower slightly, and removes nearly 20lbs from the engine! Since the factory balance shaft assembly sits partially in the oil pan, deleting it also increases oil capacity 1.5-2qts, depending on your specific engine.
This little piece is a great addition for engine builds, where aftermarket main studs do not allow for the re-installation of the factory balance shaft.
Our delete kit features a 1-piece machined plate so no need to worry about multiple pieces coming apart in your engine, and an Allen head bolt for easier installation from underneath the car.
Please note: deleting the balance shaft may result in higher levels of NVH.
