16v transmission and flywheel question
i'm doing a 1.6 16v swap, and i've read all kindsa posts about 2wd sidekick trannies and pro's and con's of the larger flywheel in the sidekick tranny. can't find much info on the 4x4 tranny in the sidekick.
what i have is a lwb sammi... i've got a full 4x4 sidekick donor truck with a 1.6 16v and a manual transmission.
i'm going with 33's and debating wether to go with:
a) 1.6, sidekick manual tranny, sidekick transfer case and samurai transfer case.
(will i still have to regear for 33's? and will the heavier flywheel be good for clipping along and doing mud)
b) 1.6, samurai tranny, samurai 4.16 transfercase gears
(lighter flywheel wind out easier for mud?)
c) 1.6, sammy tranny, sammy tranfercase, diff gears
(is this all i need to adjust for the 33's? and still get good pep?)
i'm mostly wondering about the flywheel weight issue and how it will affect my ability to climb hills fast and hit mud. do i want a heavier flywheel or lighter? if i go with sidekick transfer case do i even need the samurai one?
