    Textralia clutch and 8# flywheel = WOW

    If anyone is thinking about a performance clutch and lightweight flywheel, get the Textralia! 150 miles on it and I am thrilled! Pedal effort feels better than stock and boy does it hook. I still have a little chatter (very little and only in first gear) and they say it goes away after about 300 miles. Switching to the 8# aluminum flywheel allows the engine to rev noticably quicker and is easy to rev match. I bet there's a 30# reduction in weight compared to the stock assembly. Great warranty, quality product!

    PS: Don't get the ARP bolts, they're SAE and we need metric

    Not good, it was a comedy of errors..... drag radials on backwards, blown header gasket, etc. Good 60' 1.78 (considering). The car is running pig rich (9&10 AFR's) since the Cats have been removed. Thought it was the header gasket, but with that replaced still rich, afraid to use the meth as all I see is RCH on the AFR gauge at WOT. Car is going to Doug's this weekend for the new rear with 4:10's

    Was this a direct replacement for the stock clutch, and flywheel? Did you need to put in a spacer like the Z06 Flywheel? Is the price less without the SAE bolts? Do they sell the metric bolts we need, or did you reuse the stock bolts?

    Sorry for all the questions, I'm kind of new here.

    Yes, you need the TPIS spacer. Direct replacement. Do not reuse bolts, get new ones. No price reduction. Get it you'll love it!
