    yes...if the price si right, i would recomend a CTR flywheel over an aftermarket aluminum for dail driven street cars, if it is full race...buy an aftermarket

    yes it will rev faster and give you quicker throttle response

    I'd just get an aftermarket one if they were around the same price. I loved my 8lb'er. It was simple to drive. I stalled once.

    I hated my 8 pounder(Aasco) was too light and when coming to a hard stop, my idle would drop and almost stall the car out. If it truley is a CTR fly for $40...jump on it, if not give me the info and I'll buy it!

    that sounds about right... I bought a ITR flywheel for $80 shipped. The package said it weighed like 17.2 lbs... I got it resurfaced and with a brand new exedy clutch, I haven't had a problem to date. i've put about 30k miles on it and the whole set up is still going strong.

    I never had the stock B16 flywheel on my car, I just went straight with the ITR one. but i've noticed that i do have slightly quicker revs and throttle response than some of my friends who are on their stock b16 flywheels.
