07-04-2006, 01:55 PM
Ok guys my car needs a new diff so im switching to the limited slip diff out of a 325i, anyone know the gear ratio on that? isnt it 3:73 or something like that?

Anyways im giving the wrecker a running '84 318i and im gonna try to get a bunch of parts off him as a trade. I know the diff is the first part i need, after that im not sure what to get.

Im thinking about trying a light weight flywheel, i know the 325i has a "half mass?" flywheel doesent it?

1.)i was wondering what i need to change in order to install that flywheel.

2.) what kind of impact will it have on car's idle?

3.) what kind of changes will it make towards driving the car in general?

Thanks guys

Any other suggestions as to what parts i should try to get from the wrecker would be appreciated as well.:)

Yes, I'm also interested in the lightweight flywheel info. What benefit if any does it have. I'm under the impression that it allows you to rev quicker but at the same time stops your revs from dropping quickly as well.

they drop equally as fast, sometimes stalling the engine untill you get used to it...

is that correct info?
