Here is a comparison of the stock flywheel (dirty one 45lb+) vs. the 12lb Katech flywheel:

Damn...look at the difference!

Looks great, did you get the Alu flywheel or steel?

I got the Alu, and am waiting to run the car a little on my LS7 clutch before swappin everything over.

I chose the aluminum flywheel over the steel.

an extra 7lb lighter, nice...They tried to sell me on a RDS clutch but i couldnt justify $1000 for 20lb weight loss...

Plus, this clutch can handle quite a bit. If you are looking to make more than 750lbft at the rear wheels then yes this wont help anymore, but those numbers are just too much for our narrow tires to handle...

Yeah I'm taking a "graded" approach. God help me if I ever put more than 750 lb-ft of torque to the pavement. Besides, I watch my neighbor build his twin turbo Challenger which should be good for 1000+ HP build...5inch pipes whoa!

Mouth watering aluminum flywheel served at a uniform 200F.

Good Lord....12lbs??

It looks badass, but damn that's light. Better shift with the quickness....that'll decel insanely fast.
