just got an h22 for my 92 accord. my dad is swapping it himself since i'm at college (which is a 9 and a half hour drive from where the car is). anyway, the engine is gonna be switched from a hydraulic tensioner to manual one via a parts list in an article in honda tuning magazine where they put an h22 in a civic. in the h22/civic article, they also removed the balancer belt to "free up some ponies" and my dad is wondering whether he should do the same thing or just buy a new belt and replace it. i told him that the balancers are mostly to keep the engine steady at idle, and that people with 2.5L daytonas used to disable the balancers all the time without ill side-effects (besides a little more vibration at idle, of course). so, those of you with h22 swaps, did you disable your balancers, and if you did, have there been any ill side-effects; how's the car running and how many miles have you put on it? thanks for any help.
