I was told that they throw the harmonic balancer out of alignment.

the harmonic balancer takes out the torsional vibration of the crankshaft.

im not just after the sound, im not allowed a turbo or super charger due to the crappy new laws for p platers. ive done the cold air intake, k&n panel filter, extractors, 2.5 inch exhaust, done the dizzy futher 22 degrees 8mm leads, so im jst looking for a legal way to get more power with out a huge price. im thinking either gilmores or vy ss 18's

gilmore drive won't give more power will it? also if you increase the overall diameter of the wheels you will only increase top speed not acceleration. if you want more acceleration then change you diff ratio. how much highway running do you do though?

hey mate if you want more power i noticed you diddnt say you advanced the cam timing. advance it by one notch but if your not really mechanically minded i would advise you get someone who knows what they are doing because its not the easiest job for a novice... how long since your timing belt was replaced? if you get a mechanic to change it for you just ask them to advance it for you and dont let them charge you extra to advance it because they would be ripping you off, this definately does the trick and you will notice a fair difference, also depending what you want it for most ( highway or around town) but diff gears are a good option for more low down power, nissan pintara's are good donors for crownwheels and pinions, 4.11's for auto and 3.79 for manuals but beware they are not highway friendly, your car would be revving off its tits at 100k's

oi kevo ya ******** i diddnt realise it was u!!! its walesy... i already told you bout cam timing
