Awesome man. Congrats. You have a good setup. Were the gains worth the money with the flywheel, clutch and LSD? I have heard once that fidanza isn't the most reliable flywheel. Have any input on this?
as for reliability, aluminum flywheels tend to give out sooner than chromolly, but I went with findanza because simply put it was the lightest flywheel out there. 7.5 lbs
the good thing about the fidanza is the center section that "tends to give out" is replaceable and only costs 50-100 bucks for the replacement part instead of purchasing a whole new flywheel (350ish)
The fidanza flywheel first impressions were awesome. Excellent throttle response in any gear, mash on the gas and the engine revs up so smoothly, got rid of that lag from 5K-6K rpms just before lift.
it did however add a lot of WHEEL HOP (from a dead stop launch) being the lightest flywheel it reduces low end torque, and thus creating the wheel hop. It took my custom polyurethane front mount, killerms torque brace and the LSD to get rid of "most" of the wheel hop.
the lighter flywheel is also VERY tough to launch with. I can and have pulled 2.1 60's with the LSD and before the LSD my best was a 2.28 60' with the stock flywheel (and LSD) those 60's would drop by at least .1,
its a trade off...loose a lil off the line but gain a lot everwhere else in the powerband.
i did note some dramatic decreasis in my 330 ' times from before flywheel 6.4-6.5's to 6.2's-6.3's
edit: forgot about the rest of your post...
the LSD is DEFINATELY WORTH THE PRICE! it was 1300 for everything for me including CA tax + labor + LSD.
it increases the fun factor of the car 10 fold.
I am not happy with the TRD
clutch however I wish I would have gotten the kazuma pressure plate and kazuma clutch disk. (i went with the TRD
for the 1 year warranty)
I need more grabbing power and the TRD
cant really cope with it.
