Clutch is gone, questions about flywheels

Well I did the normal search on the subject flywheels

I found this thread
http://preludezone.com/showthread.ph...mmend+flywheel

I have found a clutch hopefully it will still be there by the time I have the money for it. pooponurhead

So my questions, sorry I have a couple are which lightweight flywheel by which I mean what weight is the best for a daily driver w/ a stage 2 clutch and by stage 2 I mean a fidanza 3.2.

I have read thru that thread and I found a couple posts about 8 lbs being too light, then I hear about if you are running a boosted engine with upwards of 300 to 400 HP to go with a heavier flywheel like a 10 pound or a little more. I am planning of doing an engine build this winter to go forced induction (turbo). I guess I'm wanting my cake and eat it too. As I want something streetable for now and something that would handle the going forced induction. So what would be recommended weight to go on a flywheel like 11 lbs or should I go more? I know the stock flywheel are around 21 lbs or so. Thanks

I have an 8lb and its not to light at all... to me drives very close to stock just takes some getting used to....

If your running high amounts of horse power say 400+ then you shouldn't really use aluminum IMO.. You should go with chromolly material which in general tends to be a little heavier say 10-11.5 lbs... Its not that you need a heavier flywheel for the power its that you need something a litt stronger then aluminum at high amounts of HP...
Im not sure what the HP rating is on the 8lb fidanza, but thats what im using with an exedy clutch and it feels great.. and you cant really go wrong with fidanza brand flywheel they are made great...
I would check to see what the HP ratings are on the flywheels before you buy and find something you will be happy with... But remember unless you live in San Fransisco on a huge hill with nothing but stop and go traffic and your hauling 3 passengers plus a trunk load of beer 8 lbs isnt to light...

So what differences exactly are there between the 8 and 11 lbs flywheels. My guess is the 8lbs flywheel will be more touching feeling while letting out the clutch as the 11 lb will act more like the stock flywheel than the 8lb one. I guess you'll be stalling out alot more with the 8lb getting used to that as apposed to the 11lb?

I understand the material aspect of the clutch as ones aluminium and the other is chromoloy, but the aluminium ones that I have seen well the fidanza ones that I've seen have a replaceable flywheel disc that is aluminium and the rest of the parts are chromoloy and steel. So it would be your recommendation as I will be going forced induction, not sure really now much boost I am going to go with yet( so no idea of the hp I'll be at), I'll have to research that I am going to build the motor to withstand quite a bit but I still want a daily driver so I am not going all out. I have been thinking about 12 to 14 psi. But once I find where I want to be I'll get the car tuned and dialed in. But you would recommend the 11 lb flywheels (chromoly?)


Sorry I started looking on eBay, are these F1 Racing 11lb flywheels any good? Here are some specs I read of eBay

Ultra heavy-duty and weighs only 11.5 lbs (stock flywheel weighs 21 lbs)
Meets or exceeds SFI 1.1 specification
Made from 4140 forged chromoly steel (2X stronger than billet steel)
F1 Racing Lightweight Chromoly flywheels incorporate special design features to enhance the airflow for improved clutch cooling
F1 Racing Lightweight Chromoly flywheels work with every clutch including Exedy, ACT, Fidanza, Clutchmasters, and other OEM clutch kits
CAD designed, CNC machined and computer balanced
Designed and manufactured from state of the art facility in Japan

You actually have it reversed... The contact portion of the flywheel and usually the teeth are made of a harder composite like chromolly or hardebed alloy. The actual flywheel is aluminum... If it was just the conact patch that was aluminum that would lighten the flyweehl very much would it?
And no I don't recomend the 11 pounders. I recomend the 8 lb findanza unless your build will exceed the HP limits of the flywheel.... Usually chromolly flyhweels are stronger but heavier... Again look at the HP ratings of the flywheels... As a DD chances are u won't come near to exceeding the findanzas limit....
As for stalling out... its not going to make as big of a difference in driving as you think... Stop reading the threads where people are like you to tach ur car out to get it to move...
The 8lb very comperable to stock... Unless you can't drive a stick period.... My car is a DD and I will not exceed some outragous HP to shatter my 8 lb fidanza...
Do your research on the flywheels HP ratings I'm sure you will be pleasently suprised.....

EDIT- have u ever heard of F1 aside from ebay? Do you see F1 brand clutches and flywheels carried by main stream distributers?
Is ebay the only place aside from the sellers website where you can get F1? Do you enjoy house brand K-mart grade major componants on your motor?
Go with something you trust. If you wanna build a tough motor use tough parts... If you wanna build an ebay motor expect baaaad things to happen....
F1 is a house brand of some shop out in california and it is not offered or recignized by major distributers. I would think long and hard before using them.... Just my 2 cents

I have the F1 Racing series clutch assembly, flywheel and pressure plate set up in mine and I love it, it works perfect and I have not had any issues with it what so ever. Also, 4 of my friends at school also have this set up, all with different cars (ford probe, subaru impreza, honda accord and honda civic) and they all love it too, none of us have had any problems and it works, like i said, perfectly.

my .02 !!

^^^ there ya go, F1's work fine... I would just do research on the parts.... Really sit down and firgure out what it is you want out of the motor and start building for that now...... Worry about horse power ratings first then weight....
I'm pretty sure if your not going over 400 you will fine with an 8lb no problem.... Especially for a DD....
But if your clutch is going to have an immense clamping load with over 400 to it, go for something that chromolly...
But by all means do not think u will be stalling ur car out with an 8 lb... Its not that big of a difference believe me....

I'm not gonna lie, If/When I boost my engine I will NOT be using this set up.

It is great for a DD, with stock to very little HP gains, but for a boosted set up I plan on going Fidanza all the way

I love my clutch right now, don't get me wrong, it's perfect for the part it is supposed to play for me right now but...

FIDANZA FTMFW!!!!!

Money mainly.

I work my ass off and I pay for my own college. I currently have 3 jobs and I barely squeak by. I take out one loan a year for $3500, the other $15000 is what I come up with on my own...

I'm not trying to point fingers or say haha or anything...
But I got my exedy with findanza for 230 shipped.....
Isn't that actually cheaper then what some of the F1 ebay guys are going for?
I'm assuming u got a clutch and flywheel as a "kit" from ebay..... I havnt seen F1 anywhere else....
And believe me I know all about flipping fasfa and student loans!!!! Ill be paying on mine untill I'm grave bound...

Oh man sounds so familiar I left that BS behind and joined the Army and nine years later got out and now working as in Engineer w/ a major military contractor. I feel you man and college is not getting any cheaper, as I am back going for a double major.

As for the F1 flywheel, I get what you mean, have you seen it anywhere else, to tell you what I have only looked on eBay currently thats why I am asking about them as I am rushed to get something together as the clutch went out yesterday and I have to have this thing back up and running in like a week to two weeks max.

I think I have been talked into the 8lb findanza leightweight flywheel as I like to learn from people that have experienced them first hand, thats how I throw trial and error out the window it sames me alot of money, so thanks for all your input and info.

Well the fidanaza is what I originally recomended....
There are a lot of pluse sides to that flywheel.... I just really don't think you should go with an off brand like F1 even if people have had good luck with em.
Major componants like flywheels and clutches need to be good quality. So with that in mind what brand would u trust more? just MHO... But YMMV.
So good luck in ur build, but I really think you will be happy with a fidanza flywheel.....

I am I just wasn't sure about going with such a lightweight flywheel (8 lbs.), as I havn't ran anything other than stock on all the vehicles that I have owned. I've drivin a couple of cars that had stage 3 clutches and I guess unless you drive it a while to get used to it, other than that I'd rather not as sometimes I am in traffic with commuting back and forth to work.

So the Fidanza Flywheel Part number: 191221. I've been working online for a HP rating, where can I find one? I have been searching retailers, I'll try their site but I bet I'll have trouble finding this particular one

Anybody happen to know the HP rating of this one? Thanks

There are some quality 11.5lbers that you could use if you don't trust the 8lber... I think you will be fine either way

Na I found a findanza 8 lb for $140.00 plus like $20 shipping. I figured once I have my motor built and ready to slap on my turbo. If I am pushing too much HP @ 14 psi. I can dicide to tone it down or ripe it back apart and swapping the flywheel for a chromoly one.

But for right now a 8 lb fidanza with the fidanza 3.2 four puck kevlar is going to be the ticket.

Re: Clutch is gone, questions about flywheels

While this thread is still here and I am still waiting on parts. I have been prep'n the Lude for the clutch change. What I wanted to know is does anybody have or know the torque specs on the flywheel? I think I remember my 3rd gen being somewhere around 78 lbs or so. Also I will be replacing the stock flywheel with a fidanza 8 lb'er so will the torque specs be different as the flywheel is about 13 to 14 pounds lighter?

Thanks

Re: Clutch is gone, questions about flywheels

I believe that when I did the H22A motor back in school (this was...8 months ago now...) that it was 80lbs. -- I am 90% sure on this (give or take 10% lol)

Re: Clutch is gone, questions about flywheels

Well I about got the funds up for the clutch and flywheel, and I am positioning the Lude for the clutch job. I was just wondering if anyone would like kind of a DIY with photos of the job or is it played out? I did the clutch a while back on my 3rd Gen but didn't do a DIY. I know many on here pay to have it done. If enough interest, I'll post it up.

Re: Clutch is gone, questions about flywheels

flywheel to crank is 76lb-ft. PP to flywheel is 19lb-ft.
take the battery out.
take intake out.
take wheels off.
take shifter cables off.
take VSS out.
drain tranny fluid.
unhook reverse light wires.
rent a BJ separator, take the shock fork off, unbolt the LCA's.
take radius rods out, and unbolt the subframe (trust me on this, it'll save you hours and hours and hours of cursing, bitching, kicking, and screaming cuz you're gonna think you can squeeze the tranny in/out between the front and rear subframes)
pull axles out. take intermediate shaft out.
unbolt tranny from block, rear mount, and tranny mount. drop the tranny. install in reverse order.

Re: Clutch is gone, questions about flywheels

Wow thats seems a bit more involved than my 3rd gen was. But I did take out the motor and tranny as one piece. Humm I have some studying to do on this then, as for the sub fame is that self explanatory once I get under there and see it I'll know what to do? Okay so its a no for the pics and points of view. Anyhow I might be hitting you back on some breakdown details. Thanks
