your logic makes sense and however small it may be, having a lightweight flywheel should "free up" some hp but the main thing is being able to go through your rpms revs a lot fasters and the revs drop a lot faster between shifts

For me...we needed a car + i've always wanted AWD...a WRX/STI was never in our budget but we tried, and i found this 08 2.5i premium on special, so i've got the navi, steering wheel controls and such, got it for 18,600, 30 miles on it when it left the lot. I've got a hookup with wholesale pricing @ megan racing and centric/powerslot/stoptech and after i get close to running out the warranty, im gonna go look into the twin scoll turbo from Garage Tuning whom i work 1 block away from.

Until then all bolt on, full suspension and exterior mods only.
