Most flywheels out on the market are in the range of 8 lbs. The stock flywheel is around 16 lbs (this is a guess from holding it, I haven't weighed it).

Anyway, the benefit you get from a lighter flywheel is less rotational mass, which will give better acceleration. The downside is that you do not store as much energy in the flywheel, meaning you're on the accelerator more and the revs drop off quicker (this is bad for gas mileage, good for downsifts).

I love my Exedy.


Edit: Flywheels are not power generating modifications.

It wont generate any power, but it may free some power from the drive train. It takes less torque to rotate a lighter flywheel, but on the flip side the revs will drop off much sooner and that isnt great for all out drag racing (launching in particular). But if you just want some more pep under your right foot then a lighter flywheel will help you there.

just my two cents tho

i've got the exedy fly and daily driving is not affected at all. i mean unless your trying to parallel park backwards, uphill, and in a tight spot (sarcastic), you should be fine.

My 8lbs ACT prolite flywheel is very nice. Revs are super fast and you have to shift faster...but other than that...daily driver conditions are just fine once you get used to it.

I have the comptech flywheel with exedy stage 1 clutch. I love the combo. No problems with daily driving with the flywheel. In normal shifying at 4000, rpms fall perfectly for the next gear, no problems with rev matching. And when you have to downshift, it is so much easier. Love the mod. :thumbsup:

Thanks for the input. How much does the Exedy weigh? How much more effort does it take to depress the Exedy clutch over the stock one? Appreciate your replys. I'm gong to be buying a clutch, fly, 4.7 final drive nd Quaife next week. Just need to decide which clutch and flywheel. Thanks.

Exedy stage 1 clutch doesnt take any more effort to depress. feels the same as stock. but engagement is much sooner, and there is no more feathering the clutch really. I love it though, and I got used to the new clutch quickly.
