Question, Do you have to fill with 6 quarts after deleting the balance shafts, or can you just fill with the standard 4.5 quarts? I've searched around and can't tell if this "cheap" mod will make every oil change afterwards 50% more expensive. I'm dying to do this mod, but not if it will increase the maintenance costs by that much.

2004 ZX5 5spd; pretty stock, and slowly rusting
