    IF it's balanced and polished it will handle more power then you are going to be pushing, Worry about your, rods and pistons.

    They are tough little bastards. And if you get it balanced, it will be that much better. Unless you are going to try for some retarded amount of power (400+hp) I wouldn't worry about it. Honda's factory cranks are tough as shit.

    like stated above, worry about the rods and pistons. the cranks are exceptionally strong and can handle 800 hp if balanced and all that junk. youll fuck up the block before the crank gives you problems.
