Alfa 156 1.8/2.0 TS 16v Flywheel's weight?

Hi I want to put a lightweight flywheel to my 156 1.8 TS. That's why I need to know what is the weight of the OEM flywheel? Can you help me?

A very light flywheel can make it difficult to drive on the road though.

Have you tried a TTV flywheel?

i have one fitted to my 145 and it was a lot cheaper (and in stock) than the autodelta one.

iirc the standard one was about 9kg and new one around 5kg.

makes a hell of a difference. very revvy

Just looked at their site and they have updated it with weights

No a lighter flywheel won't affect the top speed, that is controlled by the gearing in the gearbox, im also going to go for a TTV one when i get some cash.

i was thinking rather about the time needed to reach the top speed. I hear that the car is weaker on higher gears. isn't it?
TTV has any other versions of flywheels for twin spark? or only Supalite' one which is less than 4 kg? isn't it too light?
