Ten pounds off the flywheel is a LOT, personally i wouldn't take that much off, as eventually it loses it's strength, and you run the risk of it breaking apart at speed. At the engine speeds it's likely to break at (close to redline) the edges will be going 166mph!

Sounds like a bad idea to me. You can only do so much with a stock flywheel. Plus, I think a stock flywheel weighs so much for a reason. Maybe just for drivability, maybe not.

i would say, don't remove more than 5lbs. that should still be safe. but light enough to notice a difference.

Yeah, but having a shop do it would cost ~$40, bit cheaper then LSD's shaved stock flywheels.

and in that case if you're looking for a 15lb flywheel join the LSD flywheel group buy.
if i owned a 90/91 then there would be no question about it.
LSD flywheel all the way.

its not that clear for the 88/89 crowd.
a custom clutch that only one company makes ?
ehh.

The engine won't blow, it doesn't need much in the way of flywheel to live.

It's the flywheel itself that may come apart, if it does you can kiss your car goodbye.

The flywheel chunks will go right through the transmission, through the dist, through the hood, through the firewall, through your passanger, through everything else in line with it pretty much anywhere in the car, and generally cost a lot of money and/or your passangers life.

Shaved flywheels aren't something to fuck about with imo, and 15-16lbs would be the lightest i'd do.

(actually, i wouldn't shave a stock one at all personally, i'd buy an integra 9-12 pounder)
