Last issue, Project M3. Doesn't sound like a good mod for a street car, particularly since the gains are so marginal given the cost. Might be more fun to drive, but accelerartion gains are nominal. Loses torque at low rpms, gains hp at upper. Probably changes the "feel" of the engine more than anything else.

Any flywheel from 10-14 pounds will make your trani sound like it's got rocks rolling inside of it. Other than're good to go.
Pro- much better acceleration. Less rotating mass translates into more power, applied to the groud faster. In racing, that's what you need!
