It's 100% apples to apples installation swap. Dimensionally, the Fidanza flywheel is the same as the stock one so no issues there. And the LSJ upgrade clutch kit and slave are bolt ons also once you have a that flywheel. As a bonus, I like the more positive engagement of the Fidanza versus the "squishy" feel of the DMF. Plus it sheds a little weight. Not a huge difference, but revs up slightly quicker.I would be getting new stock flywheel and pressure plate just more friction with a plate. But I have had my mind set on the same setup as you have but could you do a run down of any difficulties during install? Is it all compatible 100% cuz ive read there's a few special things
Yeah it's amazing the potential these cars have with some tuning. I had a stage 2 before the stage 3 and it was night and day difference from stock but I never really even got to enjoy it cuz my clutch started slipping a couple weeks after I had it tuned. So naturally the fix was to put a downpipe on it and do a stage 3 to go along with the clutch/flywheel swap.:cheesy:I think i'll get in trouble with a good clutch haha 5th gear on the highway is crazy even with slippage. I go 75-100 sometimes without realizing it on a lane change and overtake
I went with the Fidanza 12lb flywheel. You are running a stage 3 with the stock dp? How are you measuring egt's? The 3" dp will make a huge difference with a stage 3.Yes Ive yet to get a dp.... haha egt's have been fine so far I don't wide open throttle hardly ever. There are two flywheels fidanza offers for our cars. One says fidanza flywheel thats all another says Ralco RZ flywheel (see here: http://thmotorsports.com/ralco-rz/ralco-rz-speed-flywheel/rz36931/i-531571.aspx). Which did you buy? the regular one I take it because it weighs in at 12lbs already and I imagine the Ralco is like 8 which would be ridiculous..
