    opinion on tearing down new race engine

    Would you guys tear down an engine replace the rods, then rebalance a crank to lose 3.5 lbs rotating weight?

    YES 3.5 pounds....

    Nope!

    Possibly where you lose weight could come back to haunt you later. Like was said. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
