the only downside i've noticed to having the spec aluminum f/w is a little more vibration at an idle, and at certain rpm's/speed's you'll hear a little bit of drivetrain noise. nothing much though. it idles the same as before.My throw out bearing is going out, so I ordered a new SPEC stage 1 clutch kit and a STEEDA firewall clutch cable adjuster kit. All from AmericanMuscle. I didn't order the flywheel yet because I didn't have the money at the time. So my question is, should I order an aluminum flywheel? I know the benefits of having one, but I read somewhere that its not really practical for a a street car. The thread stated that you might have idle problems. Are they right? If so, which flywheel should I get? My 02 GT is bone stock, but I figured if I'm in there I might as well get the aluminum one. Thanks guys
if anything it actually makes the car easier to drive, easier start-off's, easier shifts, easier acceleration. and if your going to install this yourself like i did, definitely do the clutch and flywheel at the same time. there's no reason to take the clutch out twice. if you dont buy one at least resurface your stock one.
