how many of you still had stock flywheel and upgrader to a lightwieght one? was it a great upgrade or was it not really a big deal? i hear some people complaining about flywheels like they would keep it stock. i ask you guys because the people that say that arnt that smart lol! just wondering if it is worth the money?

I think it is a great mod if you go all the way and get a light weight one, 10lbs or less. I lightened my stock one, the way the forum says to, and really did not notice a difference. My car "feels" faster, but i dont know if flywheels make your can any faster. I really like the mod because of the way the engine responds and revs. It just feels more like a race car. the bad thing is that you are gonna spend about 250-400 dollars.

they are suppose to make a noticeable difference with turbo spooling if you are running a bigger turbo, t3/t4. I have not seen people saying that it not a worth while mod. There are discussions on if/why it helps spooling. It is worth it in my opinion. I am assuming you must be replacing you clutch soon and are thinking about a flywheel as well? If you subtract the cost of resurfacing the flywheel then you can say that the light weight flywheel would only cost you $235. that is not bad in my eyes.

I had a Findaza (spelling) 9lb flywheel on when i bought my NX. Unfortuanatly i was young stupid and the guy told me the clutch was slipping when i bought it, For the first 2 -3 months it was amazing, then the Clutchmasters Stage 2 clutch went, along with the JWT Pressure plate, and, sadly enough, the fly wheel. So i had to go back to stock. There was a HUGE feel like i lost sooo much power down low, the flywheel is an AMAZING modification, it makes acceleration SO much faster. I would deffinetly recommend the Findaza (spelling) 9lb flywheel, After i get my turbo kit on im investing in a new Stage III clutch JWT Pressure plate, and Findaza flywheel.....

OH and while we're on the subject of flywheels, anyone catch a glimps of that new flywheel (cant remember who makes it) But it has replaceable "plates" that, instead of replacing the ENTIER flywheel you just get a new set of "plates".... its crazy expensive but only weight 9.5pounds.... ill do some research and try to find some pics. But i jsut want to see if any of you guys have heard about it yet.

Most if not all aftermaket flywheels have a replacable surface. you may be interested in the clutchnet groupbuy for clutches and flywheels. check the GB section. i am not personally familiar with clutchmasters but i hear a lot of negative reviews on them.

I have a Fidanza 9 pound on my turbo'd DE and it is a great mod for faster spooling and better acceleration. The quicker you can rev the motor the quicker you make horsepower.

It is a little more complex than stated above.

Fyi

This is the TURBO forum, this and your other post are in the wrong forum and may get more responses if they were placed/moved to the correct forum.

I agree that it is a little more difficult to drive with an ultra-lightweight flywheel. If it is a daily driver it will take some getting used to.

I have a Fidanza in my DET, and going from stock to the DET setup, I don't believe it is any more difficult to drive. Different, yes. Harder, no.

Sorry but the benefits of a lightweight flywheel are pretty much the same between an NA and a Turbo car. I was just trying to point you in a direction where you may have gotten more responses, that's all.
