    What difference do you think the lightened flywheel made?
    I've just got a NHB facelift recently and I'm enjoying getting stuck in to it.
    Just collected a set of 17" Autec wheels and Yoko AD08 tyres.
    Tyres are 235/40/17 so wider than the 205 that was on the original wheels but as they're a 40 rather than a 45 then they must be closer to 2 width profiles out than 3.

    Ordered an original airbox so just need to fit that in work next week. Someone's put an eBay special carbon 'look' air filter on it.
    Done engine oil and filter, NGK iridiums, gearbox oil, pollen filters and 3 new wiper blades so far
    Oh, and new OEM mats, too!

    Going to sort the headlights out next (going hazy and yellow), as well as get a new gear knob.

    Yeah I think I need a new front engine mount. When I had my inserts put in they helped with axle tramping but it's returned so I can only assume the mount needs changing.

    Not enjoying the race car mod?

    .
    The engine revs more freely and just feels more alive. The acceleration feels better too. And with the MFactory LSD with Stage 1 racepack certainly helps put the power down. Def worth doing.

    I have an Ultralight brand flywheel I will be selling as I wanted an MFactory one. It is only 5 months old. Stevie at Grinspeed bought it in and fitted it for me in August 2017. Just replaced it in Jan there but nothing wrong with it.

    LOL hated the inserts :P Cabin vibration with just the front and rear engine mounts done. Was a workaround until could get new engine mounts. Which has now been down and quiet again :P I should sell you my old ones with the inserts in lol

    How much does it weigh? How much does a standard one weigh? Mine doesn't need a clutch yet but as soon as it does it'll be getting a lightweight flywheel.
    It's on 115k and no record of a clutch change in the history so could be coming up soon.

    Are you going for Genuine Honda front and rear engine mounts? I am just reading your build thread for Bob. And didn't realise you had all that gearbox work done back in June 2015

    MFactory LSD made a huge difference

    Think I want an LSD, too! While the gearbox is out, lol.
    I'll wait until the clutch goes for the flywheel I think.
    Out of interest, are all the lightweight flywheels just 20% lighter?

    Original EP3 flywheel is around 7.9kg, facelift is 4.9kg I think, 38% difference is significant.

    Some lightened flywheels mass as little as 2.8kg. I suspect they wouldn't last though.
