Chris.
Flywheel bolts are one time use.. my OS Giken used specific flywheel bolts which have been in and out of the car a few times during our prep for MFest. I'm HOPING that simply replacing them with new ones, and torquing them properly will resolve the issue.

I'm not going to bring the car to Phoenix for that. I'll likely do it here in the bay area.

Ben's car is finished but I wanted to share the before and after overlay with everyone as well as some final pictures we took. Those 17's on the back are all business!

DAMN!

The 6466 takes a shyt all over the old 6776s from 4250rpm and up. im sure the exhaust helps a bit too

can the SMG enjoy a light weight flywheel?

The original 6776 Graph I found didn't have torque on it but I will find one for the 6466. I thought Chris already posted it on here, my apologies

Turbo cars like load Rico, more weight on the crank equates to more load. You would probably spool later if anything. I have spoken to a few NA and Supercharger guys with a lighweight flywheel on their SMG and have gotten mixed reviews but nothing I have seen personally. I do know of a customer down @ MFest (LSB Vert Hardtop with LSB Interior) he tracks his car and has a Spec Stage 3 Clutch and Lightweight Flywheel that I thought would fail but he's still going strong and tracks the car pretty often. He is only at about 300whp I believe though.

I thought the spool would be way up at 3k. How hard is it to adapt a QSV to PT turbos?

Ben, those 17's look so badass. I know you complained about wallowing. Did you ever get that solved with better coil overs and maybe increasing your running psi in the tires?
I know Marcus runs 17's with no complaints we have heard about.

i should not have put 315s on there. should have put 295 or 305 max. you need a 11.5 wheel to run 315. ill burn these up and try some 305.

so you should be fine since your apex are 11.5 right?
also, since you did so much work on your fenders... try and get 275 in front.

No, I have 11's. I was incredibly lucky to have those made for me. They are the exact size recommended for 315's. I checked everywhere. 11.5's might be better, not withstanding...less sidewall bulge. I hear you about your 10.5's. Sorry they did not work out. I still think they should have, and cant think of a reason why they aren't working for you.
That's not bad advice for me to get 275's up front. I may be able to do that. I will look in to it. Thanks.

But DID you ever get the mega springs you were talking about??? I have 750's in the rear which i think is adequate. You were talking 1000? as I recall. That is a lot, but should stabilize any issues you might have...I would think!

Are you loving your 64mm turbo? If it still isn't spooling as fast as you want then GET a QSV. It has been show to FIT and WORK on our cars...very well, as a matter of fact! It just takes some tweaking to get to fit. Good luck in achieving what ever your goals are.

Bdave, I was actually unable to fit my 17's.. they didn't clear my mono block brembo's by about 1mm. I actually drove to Apex , test fit the 17's.. they fit (very close, but they fit) .. but the production wheel was actually just a hair to small compared to the prototype we sized with.

So now I run on 19x10's on R888's..

No way! That's terrible! Mine fit...barely. I had a the people who make the wheels for Apex, custom make me a pair of 11 inch wheels for hardly any more $$ than the 10.5's. I should say this was all arranged for me by someone else with all the contacts.
There are one or two other guys running 17's? I forget. Does anyone know?
So, Marcus, I guess you didnt want to grind on your BBK's even a little? I have heard of people doing that successfully.
I hope to report on how mine work in the street shortly.

I would have had to grind the actual allen bolts.. the mono blocks are different then the two piece Brembo's.. I didn't want to grind that, chances are I'd need to drill it out to remove my calipers.. wasn't worth it.

too bad you couldnt have had Apex spin the barrels on a lathe to make them fit if it was that close.

No, I would have done what you did...use a different wheel. However, I am kind of surprised APEX didnt try to help you out some...exchange the wheels for a measured set? Don't they even advertise that their 17's will clear BBK's? Sorry. Too far off topic? maybe you can PM me.

Dreikraft, you will let us know when you burn up the 315's how the 295's or 305's treat you? I still think 10.5" is well with in range for 315's. You MAY have other things at play like ball joints, RTABS etc. You should NOT have a wallow just from wide tires on SLIGHTLY less than ideal width wheels.
