Was considering buying from them too. With or without the balance it looks like a pretty decent deal with the 6.0" rods instead of 5.956.
I thought everything should be balanced together (harmonic damper, flywheel/flexplate, crank, rods, pistons)?

No real need to have everything balanced together. The dampners and flexplates are pre weighted to a standard and in the case of the 4 inch eagle are neutral balanced and will require a neutral balance dampner and flexplate . In either case what if you need to change flexplates or dampners. Do you really want to tear it all apart and rebalance it because your fleplate was used as a balancing tool by a lazy "machinist" ? If I sound bitter about that theres a reason ! I never send the flex plate of dampner witht he rocipricating stuff when I get an assy balanced. A good balancing technician will know he doesnt need it.

Anyway I deally you want to wait to get it balanced AFTER you make sure you have proper valve clearance if you are using a biggish cam or big valves. More than likely you wont have to grind on the rods or crank for clearance as that will be dont to the block but those valve reliefs can be tricky on out of the box pistons.

Were you looking at a roller cam or solid?

i was thinking comp cams 274 -292 xtreeem energy.
roller if i can afford but the bottom end will probly bankrupt me.
thenim not sure extreem hydro or maybe some solid.
i want it streetable with lots of tourque 6500 would be fine even 6000 rpm.
i have afr 185s with upgrade springs not sure how they will work with solids.
i was hoping the srp pistons would have large enough valve reliefs.
im not sure if the keith blacks will or not.
