My butt dyno says it's quicker. Have no idea for sure what it'll do for 0-60 times. I have to imagine that it would be somewhat quicker. It is supposed to free up some power that can be considered lost through the drivetrain. It takes power to spin a heavier flywheel.

Like I said in previous posts I can pass people without having to downshift now. Part of that is because my clutch was slipping to some extent before. Part of it I'm sure has to do with the lighter flywheel. The car feels more peppy, more alive, more willing to go, lighter, more aggressive etc.

Now that it's fully broken in I will say it again. It is as smooth as stock if you handle the clutch properly. I was just driving around today and thinking to myself 'Wow, I barely feel the shifts now when I'm taking it easy'. Probably because I'm used to the set-up and it is broken in now.
