Could you repost that in some sort of coherent question please.

I'm gonna guess you're asking if you need to run the factory balance shaft. Well, it's not there for looks. While it may run without it, the 3.8 is not know a as smooth engine so you'd likely have vibration issues.

1988 Mustang LX coupe will miss you greatly
