    Is the ls2 flywheel lightened? does it make it rev a little faster? what material is it made out of? aluminum? also, did you install it yourself or did you have it done?

    here ya go--- they have amazing deals on just about any part you can imagine. Not the fastest shipping but its worth the wait for the prices. They have it for $464.55 with shipping! They have rock bottom prices and then really high shipping, but it still comes out to be very cheap!

    I have an 2000 ss m6, would a 01-02 slave fit on my car. It may be a dumb question, but I don't know.

    I looking to get a ls6 flywheel and clutch. Will I need anything else to go along with the new 01-02 slave?

    you could also replace your pilot bearing. Its only like $10. It what the trans input shaft slides into.

    no, its a heavy steel flywheel. It will probably rev slighly slower because steel is heavier than aluminum.

    I did my install my self.

    so the only advantage of the ls2 flywheel is durability?

    I was under the impression that you needed to get the LS2 flywheel in order for the LS7 clutch to fit properly when converting from a LS1 stock clutch...

    Please correct me if that is wrong.. don't want to waste money if its not necessary.


    PS.
    The clutch release bearing is more like 80$, not 10, and it has GM# 89060001.

    thats not the part i was talking about.

    i was talking about the pilot bearing part #14061685 - gm parts direct price $9.58



    --and GottaHaveLS1 i got the LS2 flywheel because i had to match the LS7 clutch with the flywheel. (as others above have said)

    Sorry 99blueZ i misunderstood.
    Thanks for the number for the pilot bearing. Is there any point changing the clutch release bearing?

    Anyone know what a TO bearing is? They ship it with spec clutches and i was just thinking maybe i should get this one new as well when i change to LS7 clutch.

    Will an alignment tool be necessary and if so, how do i get one? Are they clutch specific?

    Any other special tools required when changing to LS7 clutch, LS2 Flywheel and 02 slave cylinder?

    i wouldn't change the clutch release bearing unless you know yours is bad.

    A throw out bearing is attached to the slave cylinder. Its all one piece. You should get a new slave cylinder since your have a '99. There is a better design that came on '01-'02 models. That is the one that you should get. Its a direct replacement.

    The only special tools you need is a pilot bearing puller if you decide to change that. And you need a clutch alignment tool. It is specific for our trans. It is 26 spline tool. Its just a cheap plastic tool - maybe $5. A performance shop just gave me a free one, so i was lucky.

    the ls7 clutch sounds reliable but i'd like to get a lightened flywheel when i have to replace everything so the motor will rev faster. Any recommendations other than the ls7. i heard spec isn't very reliable.

    i've read that a aluminum fidanza flywheel will work. And as far as the spec - i have heard many mixed reviews - but more negative. On another site i read about a few people who put in a LS7 when their spec 3 went out and they say the LS7 is a big improvement.

    As far as the slave goes, Matt told me the slave cylinder comes with the throw out bearing, the clutch does not. The bearing should ALWAYS be replaced with the clutch.

    "You should go ahead and replace the slave cylinder
    > as it comes with a
    > new throw out bearing."

    I was going to buy the LS6 clutch since my car is all stock. I priced it two days ago at $368.00. I just got on line to order and they jacked the price up to $470.00.

    That sucks. I will get the LS7 clutch now.
