I've heard a few bad things about aluminum flywheels and I personally trust a steel flywheel to be more reliable and live longer but I wanted something lighter than the stock steel one.

Found this lightweight steel flywheel made by Exedy and am really thinking about it.

Or any opinions on the Ford Racing aluminum or steel flywheel?

If it were you what would you go with?

yeah that's why I'm doing it. I'm replacing the clutch so I want to replace everything while I'm in there. I will for sure be doing an aluminum drive shaft though in the future. Along with 3.73s (I do a lot of highway). I wish Ford Racing made 3.90s

misweetrevenge,

We've had a lot of good feedback about this Exedy lightweight steel flywheel. I can't say I've ever used one personally, but Exedy makes top notch drivetrain parts, so I wouldn't need to think twice about it.

I agree using a light weight steel flywheel is usually the best of both words. I've only used billet steel flywheels on all of my cars in the past and present. Which is why I think you'll be very pleased with Exedy's billet steel flywheel.

Give me a shout if you have any other questions too!

Yeah I'll be going with the Exedy flywheel for 2 reasons.
1) Getting an Exedy clutch.
2) Mechanic won't install an aluminum flywheel.

misweetrevenge,

He has some strong opinions against aluminum flywheels...lol. Regardless, it sounds like the billet steel is what you want anyways.

Let me know what you think once it's completely installed!
