    I got a 4 door civic with a b18b swap, I wanted to know if you guys think its worth putting in a lightweight flywheel in it since the clutch is brand new. I guess im asking is it too much work for what its worth. I had a b18b hatch with a 12lb act flywheel and I thought it was so much fun. Is there anything difficult with actually mounting the flywheel to the motor? thanks in advance

    I have an 8lb flywheel on my gsr hatch... the reduced rotational mass is definately noticable in the lower gears, and the revs rise and drop much faster than stock. Installation is easy. Unbolt old one from crank, and replace with new one. Mine came with a new pilot bearing, which presses in.
