There is no telling how many small blocks I've put together and never had one balanced and never had any issues. As long as your using the correct balancer and flexplate you won't have any problems. If it were a destroker or stroker or a 400 I would say by all means have it balanced. But on 350's and smaller for street duty I wouldn't bother.

If it does you'll never feel it. Like Doublevision said, we've all put a few small blocks together with out balancing. I would if I changed pistons and other internal parts. Relatively spaeaking its fairly cheap, I think I paid $100 or so.

Rev's r the key.

<5500 walk all day with the proper build & no balance. But > 6500 wish U had paid for the bob spec results.

I don't know guys; this engine has a pretty good cam, really good heads and crappy bottom end. This, as us old farts know, is a learning process we all came through. Stock rods with ARP bolts hanging Summit hypers tied to a 10/10 stock crank, and I'll bet an old used stock damper and this is going to turn 6500 RPM in a Daily Driver.

If I was in the business of making SBCs into grenades, this is exactly what I'd build.
