    Update, Jacks car is an 01. Joe, did you weigh it with the pressure plate and disk?

    Maybe I was wrong. Let me find it in the shed and I'll weigh it.

    Re: NB1/NB2 factory flywheel weight question

    I don't know how accurate this thing is, based on what it says I weigh it has to be at least 20 lbs off...

    I assume thats close enough to Bernie's 16.8 number to call them the same.

    I remembered that my flywheel is from Scott's 99. I was wrong about the 19 lbs. It weighs 17.2 with a pilot bearing in it. It was also skim cut by machinist before I put it in.

    So we are +/- 0.4 lbs on an NB1/NB2.

    Sorry MM, I envisioned Joe standing in the buff on his bathroom scale just before he took a shower, holding his flywheel!

    Not only that, I never, never want to imagine Joe in the buff in any situation. Thanks Mario. A thought cannot be unthought.

    I have a '94 fly wheel. That info came from the turbo Forum many years ago!
    My flywheel is NOW 10# LOL I know that for sure! LOL
    Thanks Bernie for all of your help.
