Does anyone know at what point the crate LS7s are balanced? Is is done pre or post mounting of the 1) flywheel 2) clutch etc. So if I'm using an aftermarket flywheel and clutch, will the balance be off?

TIA.

Bobweight is based on piston/rod assembly mass and crankshaft charactaristics. You can change the flywheel and it wont affect it's balance.

You may be catious of some aftermarket flywheel and clutch assemblies. I have seen them where they were not '0' balanced. A good machine shop can 0 balance these pieces for you or at least check them! It would be well worth the money.
