Heavier Flywheel

Does anyone know if there is a heavier flywheel available for the sammy? I know they make them for the toyotas. They are supposed to make a difference in your low end torque. Anyone know if they really work???
Thanks, Rick

Re: Heavier Flywheel

A heavier flywheel would make your Sammy really bog down in the low range. The only advantage I see is that the RPMs won't fall as fast between shifts. Not exactly worth it if it kills your acceleration.

Re: Heavier Flywheel

there was a company that makes them for *eeps. They run a yellow and blue YJ in the ARCA series. Can't remember the name for the life of me. I read somewhere that they would make a custom one for you. They are supposed to work great for keeping the fire lit at low revs.

If you could find one they do work. That's what made the old 225 V6 so good in Jeeps. It doesn't really increase low end. What it does is give the motor momentum(sp) to keep going at low RPM's. That makes it harder to stall and can help carry you over some obsticles.

Re: Heavier Flywheel

The question now becomes, which vendor will be the first to release a weighted flywheel?

How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop?
