In my opinion .......NO

Bobweight does not include the flywheel (or flexplate)specs.

Bobweights (the weight of the pistons/rods/rings and rod bearing) are placed on each throw of the crankshaft to be balanced. All of these items were made to weigh the same prior to this step. The harmonic balancer, the lower front pulley, the bottom timing chain gear and the flywheel are installed. The pressure plate also. The entire rotating assembly is then spun and depending on certain factors......weight is added or drilled out. Most balancers add weight or drill out on the crankshaft. Sometimes weight is added to or subtracted from the flywheel or harmonic balancer.

He CAN duplicate the Bobweight but without your crankshaft and other pieces ......he cannot balance a flywheel to your rotating assembly.

Kind of long and involved...... Hope this helped.
