1986 944 Turbo Effects of Improper Balance Shaft Timing


Vehicle Information: Model(924/944): 944 Turbo; Year: 1986; Engine (type, size, modifications): 2500 cc, Autothority Stage 2; Total Mileage: 180,000;

The balance shaft keys on my car were installed 180 degrees out of phase. Before the problem was corrected, I suffered broken belt tensioners, cracked power steering pump mount, cracked oil pickup tube, and a cracked fuel rail. Is it likely that this damage was caused by the balance shaft? What further damage might I check for?
