    Im planing on taking out my 88 clutch and tranny and flywheel from my d16z6 swap and upgrading to a 91 clutch, tranny and flywheel, Im wondering how much I can shave off my flywheel, I dont want to effect the reliability in my car and I also dont want to end with blown crank bearings half way threw the summer.

    I wouldn't do anything under 12lbs, and make sure it's balanced also, that is key.


    I would suggest just buying a fidanza, shit htey only cost under 300 bucks

    :Word: fidanza makes a badass flywheel, go any weight you want just make sure it's balanced. I think the stock d series flywheel weights like 18 lbs, I personally would perfer an 12 lb flywheel as well.

    don't get me wrong, if done right it will hold up no problem.

    I ran a GSr lightened flywheel for about a year, weighed in at 12.5lbs and was balanced, I can't stress the importance of balancing it.


    Would if I were in your shoes I would go with the fidanza

    I had problems with my idle dropping to 400-500k with a 8.8 lb flywheel on my b16A in my rex when evr I came to a fast stop. After 8 months, I blew the flywheel off the crank and trashed it. I went back to the stock flywheel and It went away. my feelings are, in a NA motor setup, you need some weight in the rotating mass. I yes I agree with the balancing part. I consider it a must. I just picked up an ACT streetlite 12.5 lb bastard that s going to go on my lsvtec. I think that will put me where I want for weight. just somn' to consider...
