Balance Shaft Delete?
Is this something that needs to be done? Is it worth it and what in the hell does it do?....Does the 2.0 have this? I see the 2.3 can be changed out but can the 2.0 be changed out? A little help here....I feel stupid but what in the hell is it and its purpose?

I do believe that it is for engine vibration. The balance shaft helps keep the vibration down. Not sure about the 2.0 though?

the 2.0's dont have a balance shaft...all it does is cancel out secondary vibrations from the motor that are felt in the cabin.

Yeah, negatory on the 2.0 Duratecs, nothing to take out [;)]

yes like everyone above stated the 2.0 DOES not have a BS only the 2.3 sorry to save you all that work u were looking forward to
