My brother is looking to get a Solara as a commuter car since he's finally starting college.

He found a clean 2000 with 150k on it. I've always known about the addition of the balance shafts.

I've heard they like to grenade.

Any of recommend taking them out? If so, what am I looking at for doing it?

Thanks lovers.

Here's another thread about removing balance shafts off a 98 5sfe.

It wound up being a total turd. Smoking, knocking, and smelled like someone took a crap inside. And they wanted 3500 for it.
