did he get the steel one made or did he buy it off the shelf? if he had it made then where did he get it made?
Yes DMF is to dampen vibrations. But then that gearbox is designed to be used with other engines, including diesels - never take a DMF off a diesel. If you are balancing the motor - and it is a petrol V6 not a diesel inline 4 - so your vibrations will be negligible.Flywheel: ok if im not having the dual mass then where can someone make me a single mass flywheel then? or even better where can i buy one?
also, isnt the dual mass to dampen the vibrations or can the experienced say otherwise?
already did the combustion chambers, they are sweet :thumbs:Just to add, cc yourcombustion chambers and do a proper three angle valve and seat grind, blending the sharp edges in. This will improve flow no end. Remember, "power is made in the head" I can't remember who said that, but I believe it to be true.
How much does the whole thing weigh - what's your starting point?Here is a picture of the DMF from the top and an indication of how much i am going to take off from it:
DMF bottom half
Here are some pics indicating on how i plan on grinding the bottom half sides off the DMF
now i dont think this will shave off like 5kgs but im hoping to get close to atleast taking one kg off, in terms of spinning force 1kg can be a lot!
it probably wont make an outrageous difference but maybe give it just a liiitle bit more zing.
So what do you guys think? i know its not ideal but the VAG and BMW guys actually pull this move off so... its better than not doing anything to it at all.
The 3.0 GTV did have DMF - most suggest to use the 156 2.5 V6 flywheel:busse dont have DMF or am i missing somethign
Here you go turbo, one bolt pattern pic
