Don't they make a different CAI
for the Auto? not sure, I have a 5sp but I am pretty sure some of the team celica guys up here have CAI
with an auto trans. Not sure, I'll ask around.
Flywheel is sort of but not really a clutch component, it goes between your crank and your clutch pressure plate, if you lighten it, it unlocks some torque that is lost between the engine and the wheels since the crank doesn't have to spin so much weight to turn your gears. It's not adding any more power to your engine, just getting more onto the road. (they say every lb is about 2.5lb -ft of torque across the band, so it's expensive but worth it if you lighten it allot, and can really help with acceleration) It's an expensive install since you have to remove the trans axle the exhaust and the clutch to get at the flywheel (so it's a good time to replace the clutch too, since you have to put the clutch back together anyway a new clutch install will not cost you any labor, if your clutch is more than 2 years old and you can afford a new one I would do the clutch at the same time). A good mechanic will charge about 4 hours of labor.
I am thinking about the fidanza flywheel, but I need to find the weight of the stock flywheel to figure out if the gains are worth the money.. (the install is as expensive as the flywheel itself). [ 05-03-2003, 10:35 PM: Message edited by: FX-MAN ]
