what are you trying to do with your car, if you are going to autocross or road race it then an aluminium one is what you want. but if you are going to use your car for dragracing then i would stick with the stock one. but that is me

the heavier the flywheel, the smoother the idle, the easier the starting is from a stop, and the smoother the cruising/slight throttle changes are. BUT - the slower the acceleration is. The lighter the flywheel is, the harder it is to get the car moving from a stop (just requires a somewhat higher RPM before the clutch is let out - which wears the clutch faster), depending on porting, Intake, and exhaust, the idle will be somewhat rougher, and some "jerkiness" may be noticed while cruising. BUT - you will be able to accelerate faster. but only when you are already moving

The above reasons are why there are basically three types of flywheels offered. The stock units are fine for most "normal" driving, as done by the vast majority of drivers. The light steel ones are great for "spirited" street driving, middle range autocross classes, some drag racing (heavier is sometimes better), and just general high-performance applications that will still be driven on the street sometimes. The lighter aluminum flywheels we continue to not recommend for street driving

Now I got this from Mazdatrix but the same princable still applies. you can use the is info as you with. I hope thishelps you out

Hey 00, I hope you have lots of $ to outrun that M3 in your quote. And I hope you mean the E36, not the E46. Sorry, but I'm a BMW enthusiast too. Too bad Dinan doesnt do Toyota!

If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much damn space!
