Question

I used to have an ACT clutch and pressure plate with a lightened stock flywheel on my civic and it did make a difference. The way that I look at it is the engine makes 165hp, but when Shiv dyno's it he gets 95 wheel hp. Lightening the flywheel will reduce these losses by reducing the rotational weight. Not real HP, but it is usable power.
Could anyone tell me what the real advantage would be to an ISR or Primitive flywheel vs. just lightening the stock one?
Oh,almost forgot, don't try this at home, it is a pain in the a%$ to pull and reinstall an AWD tranny!
