That's my point, you'll have something to look at for a while I'm getting mine done in July I think along with a charge cooler and an uprated clutch. Cuts down on labour for sure.
Looks nice too!

Let me know how you get on Dave. I'm thinking of the same mods for mine

i disagree with the disadvantages.
Read this on the german site:
â€¢ Engine winds up faster
â€¢ More spontaneous responding
â€¢ Smaller mechanical load
â€¢ Jerky idle
â€¢ Torque loss with too small masses
â€¢ Losses at upward gradients faster at speed
â€¢ Transmissions and torsion bars of the clutch are more strongly stressed
â€¢ Does not keep speeds constant (changing resistances are more strongly felt)
â€¢ When switching gear too fast number of revolutions are lost in the engine.
i have driven with a very light flywheels for 4 years in my kadett. 2.9kg (flywheel is 170mm overall and with a 150mm twinplate ap-clutch.
when shifting gear you have to do it quicker than with the std flywheel or the revs will fall too far.
no problem with jerky idle even with mean cams. steady 900rpm (jerky idle is not like a little rough in my mind )
you can never get a torqueloss/gain with changing of a flywheel.
you only change the deliverence of it (the heavy flywheel is just a way to smoothen the way you feel it)
the torsionstress of the gearbox will actually be less with a lighter flywheel.

i never thought you go for that recommendations either
Yeah, I only wanted to reflect the arguments, I do not buy them
