Obviously, you didn't read completely or maybe just didn't understand what I said. No, I've never had a failure. I know Googs did. He's a competent mechanic and his blew out in the middle of Australia.

My point was the parts are unit balanced. That information came from Garrett. Now, you obviously know better than the manufacturer since you know exactly how they assemble them and they don't. But, if you want to believe the guys that actually put them together, they are balanced TOGETHER as a unit. My analogy was like a tire and wheel are balanced TOGETHER. If you take a tire off a balanced assembly and then put a perfectly balanced tire back on that wheel, you can't expect the ASSEMBLY to still be balanced. Nowhere did I suggest that I would do that. It was an example. Of course, you have to be capable of abstract thought to process that, so I'm sorry if it blew by you.

Now - as a n=1 study, I did have my brand new balanced wheel installed on my existing exhaust shaft and then had that assembly balanced. They had to remove 0.17 grams to get it balanced. Now, that doesn't seem like a lot until you get in the 20,000 RPM range. Now according to your superior knowledge, they wouldn't have had to balance it at all.

I wonder if clouds ever look down on us and say, "Hey, look - that one is shaped like an idiot!"

Keep it civil, guys. Different opinions are OK, but personal shots are not.

Thanks

I balanced mine when I added a billet wheel upgrade, I didn't when I used the same wheels as was stock. For me it was cheap insurance and peace of mind. Some folks live life differently, to each his own.
