Ok, since the rotational mass is low, the main benefit is a reduction in weight, It will make the transmission of power slightly more efficient, but what makes a BIG difference is installing an Aluminum Flywheel, because the rotational mass is so much greater.

If you had an automatic, it would be more cost effective to go straight to a carbon fiber DS, than to modify an aluminum to work . ..

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
