: Good clutch and flywheel deal?

04-14-08, 12:19 AM
I was wondering if this is what Im looking for. I want to discard the dual mass, maintain factory like driveability, but free up some rotating mass and dead weight. People have said simply swapping this in is good for a tenth or .2 in the 1/4. How much lighter is this flywheel from the stock dual mass.

Not sure if this is the same clutch, or if either will work in your V, but it is $66 cheaper:


Call the vendor, ask if will work in a CTS-V, not sure it will without spacer and some grinding.
Exedy is a very good product, this appears to be their entry clutch/flywheel, it does not appear to be lightweight, also not rated for additional HP-simply a replacement. For that price you cannot go wrong, you should also check Spec, Ram and other vendors to see what you can get for an additional $150-$300.

Let us know what they say... that is a good price... GM Wants that just for a LS7 fly wheel. $240 and another $240 for the plate and disc

Go with the LS7 setup, and get the longer slave...Trust me, go with what works and tested rather than what sould work and hasnt been tested...

With LS7 Flywheel and clutch, Do you need to replace anything else? Or is it a direct bolt on. I have searched and can find any clear answers. If not the LS7 Clutch, which one to hold the extra power? Is the UUC flywheel the only direct replacement?

I think Fidanza is now making a direct replacement as well as UUC. (both are over 400, fidanza being 430) Both are around 17lbs. I personally just bought the Fidanza LS7 aluminum flywheel. Supposed to be 12.5 lbs. I also bought the stock LS7 pressure plate and disk. I think the best way to go is probably buy the Fidanza flywheel for a C5 Z06 ( the flywheel I originally bought, price was 267 shipped) and then buy and nice disk and pressure plate that will handle some power. Either way you are going to lay down some dough. The Fidanza LS7 flywheel was 400 and then the rest was around 260 shipped. But then you still have to buy a slave with a longer piston or if you've got the hook up have a spacer made. I'm getting mine made for free. I would buy a Mcleod but I got a brand new stock one for free so.........
