    Question Engine balancing - Is it worth it?

    I was reading something in a mag last night (a mag about cars) and there was a place in there advertising engine balancing.. Is this worth doing an why would an owner consider doing it? Would you do it to resolve vibration issues or could it be considered tuning/performance related work to make it more efficient and smoother etc..?

    I am looking into it on a tuning perspective to the engine as smooth as possible as i start to raise the bhp again.. I can only see it being of benefit but is it worth it?
