    shit I had a 7.5 pounder in mine, it was great. Revved a good amount quicker.


    Go for it, for turbo apps i recommend usually the factory ITR unit.

    Damn, 7.4 ounces? Wow. I want a flywheel that light. :lol:

    Losing torque is all about how you look at it. You're not really losing torque, only changing the way the flywheel acts as a rotational force capacitor. Go read up some. I made a HUGE post about this a while back.

    I have a 9lb and would never want to go back to a stock flywheel, revs are up much quicker and takeoff. Why do you think they make them illegal in some drag racing sanctions
