    Flywheel choices? need help

    So ive been looking around for clutches and a new flywheel. and so far i have it narrowed down to two. the flywheels are for the same clutch they are just different weight. there is an 8.5lbs flywheel and an 11.5 lbs. which do yall think would be better for my app. which is pretty much stock except for cai,header,cat-back

    i just bought an 11.5 pound F1 flywheel. i hear it makes it funner to drive compared to the stock 20+ pound one. I also have the same set up, header, catback exhaust and intake.

              yeah i bought it off of Gripforce on Ebay. 243 shipped to my house PDQ.

              but the kit i bought was the exedy OE replacement clutch. everyone recommends getting an official Honda throwout bearing because the one they send you is crap.

              now my F1 flywheel has the timing marks on the backside, but i hear those Fidanza don't so you'll want to transfer those marks over onto your new one if they don't have them.

              yeah the lighter the flywheel the faster the RPMs will climb because of less rotational mass. i bought the 11.5pound one because i just wanted a funner ride where it wasn't a chore to shift.

                Shifting with a 8.5 lbs flywheel is not a chore, you have to rev more but that is no big deal. My car is becoming more of a race car that I happen to drive everyday anyways.

                      don't know haven't put it in yet because i'm doing a 5spd swap from an auto.

                      another guy has the same clutch kit as me and he says he loves it.

                      i'll see if i can find the thread he made.

                              Do some more research on that clutch. I had considered it with the same flywheel you want, but some searching showed the civic/teg guys as well as several other groups (probe, miata(?), and another I can't remember) all hated the f1-racing clutch... it didn't hold near as much as it should have, wore out in less than a year of daily driving, let alone track abuse, and chattered like a mofo.

                              You can cheap out on a flywheel and be okay, but the clutch is something you don't want to be cheap on. Get atleast an exedy oem (their TO bearings are good and their stages aren't much good), clutchnet, centerforce, act are good too.

                              I have this 11.5lb flywheel and love it. Pared with an Exedy OEM clutch/TO Bearing its great. 10k miles of street use and almost 500 miles on the track (NOT drag racing) and it still works and feels fine.
