    I currently have a Fidanza 7.5lb on my 2000 Si, looking for something with a little more weight but still lighter than the stock B-series 17+lb versions. Ideally would like to find an oem DC2 ITR ~14lb, not sure if only the JDM version got the ~14lb'er or if USDM did also

    or something like an ACT streetlite ~12.5lb

    i may consider an already lightened stock one also as long as it's not warped, gouged/scored, in need of resurface, etc

    My guess on why he would want a different one, is they're inconvenient to drive with on the street. I drove a car with an 8lb'er and hated it, but I loved my 12lb'er, a lot of people like the extra revvyness of the much lighter ones though, it's personal preference.

    the one i have in there now is just bad for that particular setup. The B16 is pretty gutless down low to begin with and the 7lb makes it even worse. So it wants to bog really bad off the line then the blower catches up & goes to full boost and you get thrown back in the seat. As has already been mentioned, superlight flywheels are a pain in the ass for street driving and the supercharger makes it that much worse.

    We have the 8.8lb ACT in my gf's B20vtec hatch and its great, the tq of the engine makes up for the loss in low end from the flywheel.

    :werd:
    it's basically just trading low end for top end

    what kind? the streetlite or a lightened oem piece? condition?
    any way you'd be willing to ship me yours and i'll ship you mine back when i swap them? it probably wouldn't be for a couple weeks anyways, got finals for the next 2 weeks and autox events for the next 3 weekends
