    Gotta love the M20. Test took all of 20 minutes and showing strong numbers, consistency for a luke warm more like cold motor with 118k.

      All they can do Is clean them and hope for the best. They can't adjust anything so they aren't really "balancing" them.

        Yes you're right they're not taking action to balance them per se they're sending a before and after cleaning report and letting you decide if you replace injectors based on it. Here's what I got when I was building the 911

            It was my first time so take with a grain of salt, I think the load leveler is essential. It is a tight fit coming out with the transmission.

              Where did you put the rear attachment?

                Is this the place to attach a chain from the rear of the load leveler?

                    yeah, the big hole.

                    The load leveller will make your life much easier.

                    Before I had one, I would attach just the black piece of the stand to the engine while on the hoist, then attach the orange stand to the black part, and slowly wrangle the whole assembly down on the wheels. Not pretty, but it works.

                      Powder coat

                      I know its a personal preference thing but Iíve never seen coated or painted intake and valve covers that really make the engine bay look so much better than just clean and bright aluminum. Some folks do have pretty engines but I think the raw aluminum looks best.

                        I generally agree with you but getting dirty oily alum to look good and stay that way is tricky. I do not want it to look Ďcustomí. I have ordered a few textured silver powders to try. I was quite pleased with how I was able to simulate zinc yellow chromate with powder and hope to get reasonably close to simulating vapor honed cast alum.

                        Coil bracket is fake. Jack pad is real.

                            Those are beautiful. Mine isn’t quite that clean but I am prone to spend a few hours here and there taking stuff apart, cleaning, brushing, and polishing random things under the hood.

                                Does anybody know how to attach this all to my car? I was going to use Elmers :)
