also, a lighter flywheel helps put more power to the ground. personally, i say upgrade your clutch and flywheel as first mods instead of the ever so popular i/h/e bc you actually make more power with a clutch/flywheel. not actually making more power, but releasing power already within, and alot more than the small gains of a i/h/e
you dont make power from this upgrade.. it frees up energy that was otherwise lost turning the more massive stock flywheel. so energy not lost through the flywheel via the lightened one can be used somewhere else. so yeah you can put more of the engines power to the ground.

if you are going with boost, stay with an 11lb and up flywheel

too light of a flywheel combined with a decent sized turbo will cause you to fall out of boost between shifts due to the loss of rotational mass

This thread is so funny to me. With a lightened flywheel you'll notice your rev faster in all gears. But the lighter you go the harder it is to keep your car from bucking at low speeds. the few disadvantages of having a lightened flywheel are out weighed by the advantages if getting your flywheel lightened is what you wanna do. Your motor will rev faster the lighter you go, as will your acceleration increase the lighter you go. If your not serious about having a light ass flywheel, just get 3or 4 lbs shaved off. I had 300zxT 85' that had a 22 lb flywheel shaved to 15.5 thats minus 7.5 lbs and i sure noticed a huge differance expecially with the higher boost settings i was running. I woulda daily driver a car with anything more then 8 lbs less the original weight of the flywheel.
Forgive my coherancy for it is late at night, and im tired.
