1990-05 FM lightweight flywheel

See customer reviews of this product.

So, why do you want a lightweight flywheel? Increased sex appeal of course. But aside from that, you`ll discover your engine is more responsive to your right foot. Blipping the throttle to match a downshift, letting the revs drop when shifting up - the engine will react more quickly. It`ll make your Miata feel more like a sports car. It`s also SFI certified for safety.

There is a small but measurable improvement in acceleration in the lower gears thanks to decreased inertial losses, but it`s not a huge difference.

1994-05 size. You can use this flywheel on a 1990-93 if you also install a 1.8 clutch, as seen in our Happy Meal.

We offer them in 13.5 lbs and 10.3 lbs for a little more responsiveness. The heavier unit will be a little quieter on overrun, as lightweight flywheels can cause the transmission to make noise on closed-throttle deceleration. The stock flywheel is around 20 lbs. The heavier weight is well suited to supercharged cars to avoid idle droop due to the added drag of the blower, while the lighter model is for those who are looking for the sportiest experience.

This particular flywheel is made of steel with an integral ring gear. Unlike aluminum flywheels, it will use your factory pressure plate bolts.
