Lightened Rotors, stock flywheel. What Clutch?
« on: January 17, 2014, 09:38:33 AM »
Hi guys, i had my rotors lightened when the engine was rebuilt and had them balanced along with the stock flywheel. Also along with the rebuilt, i went for a single turbo setup. Now i need to change the clutch, as it\'s still an OEM item. What kind of clutch can i buy that handles 480bhp but still retain the stock flywheel? I only found ACT. Any recommendations please? Thanks!

I dont mean to be rude, but why lighten the rotors if you are going to run a stock flywheel?
That makes it all a bit pointless really.

You\'re so right! But unfortunately, now its done. Do you think that if i run a lightened flywheel at this stage will mess up things ?

Well the balanced assembly should have been done with the auto rear counter weight instead of a stock flywheel.
Lightweight flywheels work on stock auto counter weights you see.

Probably had the Rotors balanced but not the rotating assembly (two different things)
