What counterweights do i need? Do i stick with the ones from the EGi engine rather than the turbo II ones? it makes sense to me.....

counterweights should match the rotors you are using ... thats what they are there to counterbalance.

The Rotating assembly should be balanced if you play with it at all.

If you start of with S5 Na Rotors you will be best starting with S5 Na Counter weights you could get away with a T2 or Fd E-shaft but to be honist if you are getting it all ballanced it won\'t make alot of Diffrence (don\'t forget to Ballance the Flywheel and Clutch with the Rotating assembly ;)).

I would look into getting Fd Staitonary gears though, they have better hardening and they have Better bearings so it will help in the Quest for RPM.

If you get your Rotors ligtened it would be worth getting a groove cut for Snap rings to hold the Rotor gear in place (good to do on High RPM NA engines)
