well clutch and new flywheel are in. Taking it easy on it for a while. Had to get used to at first , got it down after a few miles real responsive. Will let you know after a few 1000. Now I have to talk to a guy about some 225 / 45 /17 he cant use

What flywheel did you go with? I stuck to stock and just got it resurfaced based on the numerous threads about CEL's and chatter.

Stock or Streetlite is a good flywheel to go with.

With my streetlite and stg 3 clutch I get alot of shatter when paying close attention to pulling out. But oh well, after almost a year Im used to it.

I run stock flywheel since I run a LWCP it's a good bet not to run a lightened flywheel....Then again who am I to say...

Idk, I have seen many subies running them with no ill effect, me to be included. I have never had an issue but the chattering. If you can deal with it, I dont feel it a bad thing. But then again, anyone want to ride in a loud car, come ride with me. The quietest part is my exhaust, lol.

My apologies, I dont run a lightened crank pulley, yet. But yes I have seen both ran with no ill effect. Of course I dont know if CELs were deleted for them or not.

Hmmmmm....I was always under the belief that it wasn't a good idea. Well I suppose in theory it would just be a lighter rotational weight and should work.

OT, but I have to say I was always under the belief that the earlier transmissions werent that tough either, lol.

Now back to your regularly scheduled thread, lol.

Well I know of a few people that have suffered a higher rate of stalls using both pieces lightened. Also at the less amount of inertia could cause A/F spikes since the ECU has to make a quicker correction with the faster revving ability of the engine. I suppose you could tune that out, but I'm not to sure that would be the only issue. I'd be willing to put money on boosting issues as well. Something for me to research while at work tomorrow...
