    Don't lighten the flywheel on a daily driver IMHO. Been there done that with my last car. Granted it was a little 4banger turbo but it made it easier to stall... You just had to give the skinny pedal some extra motivation.

    I tracked my Cobalt quite often and it was great on a track. Made down shift blips easier and such and the car gained and lost revs quicker. But there isn't any advantage to a lighter flywheel on a daily driver as far as I'm concerned.

    I went with the stock LS7 flywheel. There were concerns going around of driveability with the lighter flywheel when I purchased mine. I believe they have all been put to bed at this point. Most that went with the lightest flywheel don't have any issues with driveability in stop and go traffic. I start mine in second quite frequently and have no issues at all.

    If there's a package you can get that includes it, buy that. The PowerTorque CS2529 seems to be in very short supply, yet again. I had someone PM me on LS1Tech, asking if I knew where to get one. I have one with about 500 miles on it, but the market for used slaves seems to be pretty low, no matter the mileage/condition.

    Sounds like im steered more to LS7 flywheel instead of a RAM 19lb. Also, i am seeing that oreillyauto has the powertorque for $129. However I just went to purchase and it gave me an error. Ha.

    So then just buy an OEM LS7 kit like I did, way back when.

    The Stage 2 F1 Racing kit includes a stronger, sprung organic friction disc that can handle an extra 40 ft-lbs of torque, if you're interested:

    you would buy a used slave fuzzy? To me, that is not something I buy used.

    Also, OP buy whatever flywheel you like. I ran the LS7 in my C5 with a 13 LBS FW with no problems. It was easy to drive, and it revved awesomely fast.

    Only if I trusted the source, backed up by good pictures. I just bought a used, freshly-rebuilt McLeod 1300 series slave, for instance.
