The BSD delete kit by itself just blocks off the oil passage for the balance shafts. Just pulling the assembly would leave an open oil passage right to the pan & you'd lose oil pressure.
This^^^^^^^^^^^ Like Sailor said= Your plugging the oil feed hole for the balance shafts.

General question about the balance shaft. Is it only there to remove added vibrations to the cabin?

Questions. Will the 2.0 pan fit? I understand it holds a quart less. More ground clearance?
Prolly super cheap at the PicknPull.

Also, are the pan baffles as effective with the smaller 2.0 pan or are they mostly just needed for the bigger 2.3 pan?

Ground clearance isn't really an issue. The 2.3 pan does not drop past the lower radiator support, and if you were off roading it, a skid plate would be a better investment. The oil capacity is a better benefit than the ground clearance.

Just to add, you'd knock the oil filter off 1st.
