For the street, you need the stock (typically 30 lb.) flywheel to help get you rolling. You could go with a lighter flywheel if you are racing the car as you will be using much higher rpm's off the line.
But, changing out the flywheel is a lot of trouble and time for no gain on the street IMO.
if you are racing yes, if not what they said X2; a flywheel stocks energy only to be released when its mated with the transmission; a lighter flywheel means that you will need to increase rpm in order to release the same energy the stock flywheel was doing at a lower rpm because of its weight; a lighter flywheel will make you creep into the redline like a Ferrari engine, but Ferrari's are also 1500 lbs lighter than our 4200 lbs beasts; remember torque is what makes our babies move forward; you don't want to kill that if you are street performance only; there are many ways to shed 100lbs and thus gain a 10th on the quarter mile; that might not be the best way to go; imo
Hello all, first post here. I’m looking at challengers, as I’ve loved them since grade school. The thing is, I need AWD where I live. So, I’m stuck with a GT. What should I do to make it faster? Anything goes, such as an engine swap (if possible) or turbos. Not super chargers though, because I’m...
Thank for checking this out. I'v had my 2020 Scat Pack Challenger for about 2 months so let me dive into this.
1. I am thinking of voiding my warranty and getting the HPtuners MPVi2 tuner and having Jay Greene tune it. I know that the warranty is important but how often do we use it?
2. I got...
Just ordered my C&L intake, Diablosport catch can, and Jet Performance 180• thermostat. Once the parts are in I'm getting a Predator tuner with custom tune done by Chag Auto Sports in Montreal. Here's the question:
My tuner thinks I should have gone with a 160• thermostat rather...
