that should be ok then. i have seen people fit american import flywheels and had have balance problems. they develop a slight vibration at about 3000 rpm. but if they are machining it for a late efi windsor there wont be a problem. as long as its not a stroker.

i will take you up on the flywheel when its all done :wink:


yeah hopefully all goes well ay!
only time will tell..
will know by monday, let yous know what happens wiv it all ay..

oh yeah, will a 2kg lighter f/wheel make much of a difference to a stock weight 1? i wouldnt hava clue myself, neva seen a modded flywheel b4.

wen all is done mate, ill pm ya wen the flywheels ready to be sent to ya ;)

lighter flywheel will give it cleaner revs but will take away torque.
4wd's use a heavy flywheel to give them low down grunt but they are lazy

Oh yeah, forgot to mention, i also got my lightened flywheel installed today with the clutch.. Not happy hey, the frigan bloke that i brought it from put the wrong weight on it, he stuck a 28oz one on instead of a 50oz one :evil:

But yeah, he's gona sort it all out, so im happy with that though!

I got my underdrive pullies and ss induction kit installed the same time as everything else, and apart from the vibration of the imbalanced flywheel at certain rpm, the car goes awesome! Pulls alot harder than before, to say the least!

Im stoked! :lol: :lol:
