    Hi,

    Was wondering if anyone had any experience of a lightened flywheel on the M52 or M54 engines?

    After good manufacturers, any negative aspects noticed (like vibration etc)

    Thanks in advance

    Yes, dual mass flywheels can't be safely lightenend.

    a lightened flywheel wont idle as steadily as a stock item, and it wont absorb any vibrations from the engine as well as stock
    it'll allow faster acceleration of the car and the revs will rise and fall much quicker
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.

    Lightened flywheels can put more strain on the gearbox/drive train, also the engine can stall easier when pulling away so more revs are required.

    Especially light flywheels can give a lumpy tick over.

    More problematic on a smaller engine, less cylinders equals rougher tickover, and due to the idle being "preset" it's not a simple task of winding the idle up, it needs to be done by reprogramming.(that's if the idle was really poor/using a very light flywheel, Seen it done on a E39 M5 years ago. JB racing flywheel)
