    Billet flywheel and aluminum driveshaft?

    Can anyone tell me a rough guess about how much our f-bodies benefit from this setup. As far as hp/tq losses in the driveline?

    a lighter flywheel will aid in drivetrain loss as it doesnt take as much power to turn it, but i dont have an exact figure. and the same applies to the aluminum driveshaft because its lighter than a stock counterpart. its the age old theory, decrease the weight of the rotating mass.....

    i dont know if billet is lighter or what, but i know its pretty stout. probably isnt worth the money you'd be paying though....

    The billet fly wheel is a mute point for me now. I needed a clutch and went with a sweet deal on a textraila set up that included a billet flywheel and upgraded hydraulics. I was thinking about a aluminum driveshaft to take better advantage. Thanks for the reply. Btw, I was told the billet flywheel weighs 12 lbs. While the stock weighs in at about 25 lbs.

    You should't need to upgrade to an aluminum driveshaft cause you already have one if you have an m6.
