Removing the 18lb crankshaft balance shaft assembly from the 2.0L EcoBoost engine frees up rotating mass and helps to improve engine response.
However, removing the balance shaft assembly alone can cause oil starvation issues during high G load corners and extreme driving because of the void left behind in the oil sump and simply installing a balance shaft delete alone can lead to engine damage in certain conditions, due to inadequate engine oil pressure.
After months of designing and testing through various driving conditions, we have made a simple to DIY install component that is essential for all hard driven 2.0 ecoboosts.
• CAD-designed baffle plate
• Baffle easily bolts into place using standard webbing mounts
• Supplied with optional balance shaft delete
• Facilitates the removal of the balance shaft
