    a flywheel will not make it difficult for you going up hills, people who say that don't have a flywheel or any power. I have a 9lb in my b16b and I like it. Don't get a spoon or a cusco flywheel, overpriced. Exedy makes a nice one, safe upto 15k rpm.

    I ran a fidanza and also a GSR unit lightened to 12lbs. The fidanza was 7.5lbs, had it with a b16 and loved it.

    thx ppl :D just want you to clarify a couple of things maybe bcos u are in america you work in pounds how much is 9lbs or a decent weight for a flywheel i mean we work in kgs ere.the flywheels im looking at are about 4.2kgs.i can pick up a spoon flywheel(4.2kgs) for about $350 is that ok i dunno where to get an exedy one from and what weight does that have.

    by the way does it give you a decent increase in accel is it a worthwhile mod?? ;) :D

    trhx for your time all :spin:

    Fidanza is lighter and a great flywheel :D

    Spoon is overpriced man, but it's also chromoly which can eventually chip your starter teeth down the road.
