Duane Spencer (RIP) recommend lightening a flywheel to 14 lbs., not the typical 12 lbs. My hope is that a moderately lightened flywheel would offer the best of both worlds - an engine that "revs up" faster than stock, but would still be drivable by my wife. Wink Has anyone tried a 14 lb. flywheel? If so, how did you like it?

Cheers,

Paul

14.3 lbs ,+or-, was factory fit for ALL S90 356 engines. Works well, but not for a bus.
