    TS/JTS lightened flywheel images The first 2 pictures show the standard flywheel with the lightened flywheel to the right. Picture 3 shows the lightened flywheel. Note the bezel which has been cut into the flywheel. Lastly, note the difference in thickness. Doing roughly this, for those...

    Hi guys and girl. Clutch is starting to get a bit temperamental, possibly the slave cylinder tbh, but I'd like to ?eplace the clutch anyway as I have some free time in work. I have had a ligt weight flywheel in previous cars that have made a world of difference to the way the car revs up. Jus...

    Evening all. Im preparing to change my gearbox and clutch and looking for final advice before ordering the parts. CLUTCH The usual suppliers seem to offer the Standard Sachs Clutch kit, and then a "Sports"version, which is more expensive. I have a road going 1600 with minor tuning and plans...

  8. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Just got a lightened flywheel - 12 lbs. I have a 79 Spider 2L that I might need to rebuild an engine sooner than later as well as a spare complete 74 2L. Any experiences with members here using the lightened flywheel for street use? Would the 74 and 79 have the same ring gear tooth count?
  9. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I'm going to get the lightened flywheel / gta clutch / q2 conv done soon. Just a little confused. The likes of en spares sell lightened flywheel kits to replace the dmf. Others talk about fitting 2.5v6 flywheels that are lighter. Others speak about solid flywheels. Are these all the same thing...

    Does anyone know of anywhere that sells lightened flywheels for the 3.2v6? or if it's possible to shave a few kgs off the standard GTA flywheel even though it's much lighter than a normal v6 :) I ask because I remember that when I had my 145QV I had a lovely titanium flywheel fitted with the...

    Hi folks. I am due to have my clutch replaced soon-ish. Ive heard that on V6's the flywheel is a duel mass type and should be replaced also in routine maintenance. I have also heard that this should obviously be done when changing the clutch... this makes perfect sence, but been suggested i...

    I was just thinking the other day if anyone has gone down the renault R26R route and made a hardcore fast road/track 147 GTA? I was thinking plastic rear windows, no rear seats, caged, LSD, street legal semi slicks ect... Anyone ever heard of anything like this? Luke
  13. Tuning & Upgrades
    Hi all, With my GTV V6 rebuild project finally coming to an end, I'm toying with replacing the clutch before fully returning it to the road. Is there much merit in throwing out the dual mass flywheel and replacing it with a lightened one at the same time? I've seen the EB spares and...

  15. Tuning & Upgrades
    A lot of people have raved about the effects of a lightened flywheel. Thing is, I dont need a clutch, it was only changed 13k ago. Is it possible / or is there any point in doing it without the clutch as well? Any idea of labour times involved?
  16. Tuning & Upgrades
    Im looking at replacing some of the OE parts of my 2.0 TS engine and box (147 Selespeed) with lighter parts. Getting serious bhp out of the TS is pointless and expensive but making it more responsive and freer revving would make it a completely different car to drive. So far, work on the to do...

    would a lightened flywheel and uprated clutch cause any issues with the selespeed's shifting? would a heavier organic clutch reuire a lot more effort from the sele' to engage and disengage, therefore stressing and shortening the life of sele components? where would i get a lightened flywheel...

  19. Tuning & Upgrades
    Anyone know of a company that sell or could make a lightened and balanced flywheel for an Alfa V6? I've been thinking about getting the clutch done and a Q2 diff installed, and it would make sense to fit a lightened & balanced flywheel at the same time. I know the pro's and con's of a lightened...

    Anyone used (Autodelta's) lightened flywheel? If so, could you please share your results? How was driveability, reliability and performance affected? In particular, I'm interested in the 2.0TS Selespeed (147). Cheers.
