Re: flywheel on a diet

Don't want to piss on your parade, but the inlet manifold could do with those edges being smoothed. The step theory is for exhausts.

Cheers

Re: flywheel on a diet

Is the flywheel balanced now? Did you checked this? Nasty vibrations at high rpms, isn't good for the crankshaft bearings...

sounds rude! but yeah - tis funkeh. shame next time u see me car it won't make that awesome induction noise!


i'm assuming its balanced. place that did it for me do a lot of engine work for road/race cars - so im assuming they balanced it.

re inlet manifold, bad angle. they are smooth. they were stepped as the head ports were bigger than the manifold. ideal solution is new manifold, but as it is now is better than a step!

I dunno....when I asked the guy about why they only removed material from the back of the flywheel, he said that removing from the clutch face presented problems as it wears along with the clutch, and if it was machined, it'd need balancing.

Re: flywheel on a diet

iwoulda thought that bit wasnt touched cos if u take that away, the clutch friction plate aint gonna have anything to grip is it you'd need a modified clutch to take into account the flywheel is different?
