you have a turbo, you don't want a lw fw. I wouldn't go as light as the Fidanza for a turbo app. say nothing less than 10.5 lbs. stock is fine in fact.

This is from the guy developing the 500 whp GTS:

Smaay:

"Actually you want the heavier flywheel to maintain the inertia while shifting...a lighter one will slow down faster, ergo more spool up time, where as a heaver one that maintains the inertia will still be spinning and you will have faster spool time.

i am talking fractions of seconds here too"

well...wouldnt the 15-30 HP gain kind of offset that?

not the person to ask, but I'd say no. keeping as much of your 12 psi (or so much) of boost on shifts is more important. and I don't think you gain 15-30 hp from a lw fw. a lot of people say you don't gain any hp from a fw and they are right in the sense that no hp is made in the engine. it's whp that is gained.

I would PM smaay on that other Celica site. Matt from MWR uses his 10.2 lb chromoly lw fw on his 11 second spyder and says it's heavy enough where keeping ample boost on shifts is not a problem.

^^ correct. lightweight flywheel just 'frees up' a few 'lost' whp...it's not a power mod so to speak. it just lessens the parasitic loss the stock flywheel has..and for the celica it's only a few whp, definately not 15-30.

look at it this way..the 2zz engine makes 180 bhp (thats AT the flywheel). a typical dyno will show you have about 160 whp (true horsepower with everything attached). so you're only 'losing' 20 horsepower through your a/c system, exhaust syste, transmission, etc. and so on. and some people think replacing just the flywheel will give you all of that back? not a chance. try 2-5 whp fained back and call it a day.
