Post Lightening a stock flywheel.

This is more of a research post than anything else. But does anyone have any info. or experience working with the transmissions from the '08+ impreza? I am looking to lighten things up for efficiency.

I was wanting to get a stock flywheel from another impreza; possibly used, maybe from a junker (not that finding an 08+ junker would be easy), and machining a few lbs off of it and swapping it out.

Am I just having a pipedream? Is this going to be more trouble than it’s worth / or do any good on a stock N/A motor right now? Also, does the 08 model run the same transmissions as previous imprezas so I might have an easier time finding one?

thank you!

I'm pretty sure that at least 3-5 companies make a LW flywheel for your car. For the price of machining and balancing a stock flywheel just to save a few pounds, you could, more than likely, buy a LW flywheel.

I dont think it would be worth it, but i've been wrong before...
