    I think some posts have been deliberately deleted from this thread. Perhaps your posts got caught up in the "flush."

    any cons to getting aluminum flywheel on the V?

    I know the 15lb aluminum will be alittle better for performance. But will it give me alot of chatter and be hard to drive ?

    The CTS-v weights ~4000lbs with me in it, I just want to make sure the aluminum flywheel can handle it and be manageable to drive with ..

    There are many previous threads that cover this because the UUC lightwheel flywheel for these cars has been available for a number of years.

    Briefly summarized the lightweight flywheel works in these cars and does not present driveabilty problems. I have one and love it. The fact that these cars weigh 4,000 lbs. is not a problem because: (1) even though their torque curves differ both the LS2 and LS6 motors have ample low end torque; and (2) the transmission is a close-ratio unit such that the drop in rpm from any particular gear change is not dramatic.

    Having said this the lightweight flywheel does result in some gear noise if the the engine is "lugged". For example, if you arrive in 6th gear below 35 mph and then try to accelerate you will hear what sounds like "pinging" not from the motor but from the transmission.

    Finally, if you spend an hour a day in stop-and-go, 1st and 2nd gear trafffic you may be happier with something a little heavier. The 28 lb. level would have some appeal in that application.

    Given the subjective nature of these conclusions you really should search those earlier threads to get a variety of opinions.

    I would be so pumped if I had the ability to make a statement like that. ....but I can't....and more than likely I never ever will

    Darn right. That's exactly why I got the ~25lb LS7 flywheel... I'm in 2hrs of stop and go on a bad day..... and I'm happy from a dead start that I have those extra ~10lbs...

    and I'm also thankful I can slip the clutch... just my .02

    Not a lot of questions being answered here. But I assume the level 3 would be too "grabby" for a DD.
    I still wanna know why the 2 and 2.5 are described the same, and if I can get just the flywheel as a "bolt-on" kit.

    Tony

    Are you saying my Dyno reads low or something?
