aemeeich I just removed the balance chain on my 2000 AERO with 155,000 miles. There is less vibration now than there was before (I did also replace the two upper motor mounts at the same time, so that helped somewhat with the vibration).

supermike I know, I was saying those were the two answers he got, which both seemed like a "no" to me, and he did it anyway. I can see how that would be confusing now that you mention it.
