On a stock flywheel? Isn't that a little high? You may have you adjust your idle with your TB.

Well for a fact i know drag racing cars use heavy flywheels so they hold the momentum of the engine when the car is launched.

A lighter flywheel will provide faster shifts, shorter breaking and quicker spool up but it really won't make your car any faster. think about when your on the highway cruiseing and you need the momentum of your flywheel to keep you at a constant speed.

Unless you plan on tracking your car don't bother with the lightened flywheel. If you weren't sure what it was and did you may want to do a few other things first. Try intakes, exhausts, software before you start getting to the guts of you're car. Swapping flywheels isn't the easiest thing unless you're pretty farmilliar with mechanics. If it does happen, you may as well throw in a stronger clutch while it's apart. Check out AA or Turner for pricing.
