I have had a Fidanza on every engine setup that was in my old car. It was decent but I honestly like my stock one better than the Fidanza. All of them were the 7.5lb.

The way the car revs. With the aftermarket one it reved up really quick sense there was less weight. and for the price I can honeslty say I didn't notice any real gains from it. It gained me at most 2 tenths of a second on my quarter mile time.

I got a 7.5lb flywheel in my car and i like it it revs fast. Everyone keeps telling me that since im turbo i will lose boost quicker. But i don't think so. it's super easy and it's a nice pedal feel. Does anyone know how much a stock one weighs?

did not like the firdanza in my 98 GSX. Seemed to get A LOT of hot spots. Went back to stock and really couldn't tell a difference. I just like the beefy stock flywheel.
