I'm guessing thats how much was shaved off. it came with new bearings for crank and rods. got a new oil pump too. waiting on my arp hardened pump shaft. block was magna fluxed, good no cracks. i was scared before i sent it because what i thought was a fracture was just a casting mark according to the machine shop. i was thinking of going with a girdle to help reinforce the block. i showed them my balancer and told them about what happened. they said that the previous owner changed the balancer with the wrong one,28oz and i ended up re using it and caused the damage. they said to use a 50oz balancer. i forgot to ask them about my flywheel and will ask them tomorrow to be sure.
I'm gonna go with a new cam, I've heard good things about the tfs1 cam, don't really have enough in the budget for a custom one at the moment.
thats where I'm at so far. will keep y'all posted.
