sweet dude, is that going in with your current setup or is it goin in with the motor you've got laying around?



it's on the car now. havn't started the engine yet though.
you must use a V8 clutch with that flywheel, when ordering it you have to ask for a light wieght neultral balance EFI windsor flywheel

i used an exedy sports tuff clutch, %40 more pressure then stock exedy XR8

the difference is huge, you need two hands to pick up the stock flywheel,
you can screw a bolt into the yella terra one and pick it up with one finger!!!!

it would be interesting how much extra power the light flywheel would make.

it wont make any more power..

but it should accelerate better. it's something like for every 2kg of the flywheel is close to takeing 40gk out of the car, this one is 8.5 kg and the stock one i think is close to twice that

ah ok, i thought it would pick up a bit more power, being that you also lose some through your driveline.
but yeah keep us posted on how it goes, i may have to get one

don't touch extreme clutches they are absolute garbage. when I bought my current car it had one in there it was new, it weighed a ton, no slip no shudder, just heavy as hell, bought the car on condition they changed the clutch to a PBR heavy duty. its done alot of f^&king hard kays since I got it, I'm talking clutch dumps, over 100 kays a day of s**t sydney peak traffic, I have to slip the thing everywhere so I only expect ½ life out of it, its still a touch too heavy for my taste, so I will be looking round before to long to change, I'm not a brand loyalist when it comes to stuff like this I want what works..

I am even considering going the factory spec clutch cause it will be decent for traffic driving.

around $330-$400 depending on what you wanna get done, $330 was a base price JUST replacing the clutch, didnt einclude the price of machining the flywheel or anything like that

ok got to drive the thing for the first time today...

the clutch feel is really really good, lighter then the stock replacment i had befor. the flywheel has made a difference for sure. very snappy engine now.

once the running is all over it's going on the dyno and to the drags
