I'm quite interested in this mod too. Mainly because I bought the damn thing back in december and still haven't put it in yet! Heh. I don't have the JUN. Mine's the Mueller one from MVP. Lord knows when I'll finally get it installed (it's sitting in a friend's garage 750 miles from me). When I do, though, I'll be sure to post my impressions.
FYI, I got a new stock clutch and pressure plate to go along with it. I'm not really making enough power to warrant a high performance clutch and I'm a little cautious about the potential chatter. All the misc. crap you have to buy(throwout bearing, pilot bearing, flywheel bolts if you get new ones) are almost all specific to the n/a. The guy I talked to at MVP said that the throwout bearing should be universal, though.
When combined with an aftermarket intake as well as the egr/coolant bypass, I'm thinking it should make the car quite a bit swifter. Gotta squeeze every little bit 'a juice out of these engines
I've driven a friends Integra that has a lightweight flywheel. The need for higher rpms isn't really a cause for concern. You adjust to it rather quickly. It doesn't interfere with daily drivability from what I can see. It's not a nuiscence or something you have to consciously think about. Just imagine your car suddenly wanting a few hundred more rpms than it used to.
I just put the RPS stage 3 clutch with an alluminum flywheel into my car and its great. Takes a little getting used to but after break in period its great. It revs up faster and shifts very smoothly. The flywheel does make chatter noise at idle though, especially if you have the A/C on.
did you need to get your engine balanced? I heard lightening the flywheel puts the balance outa whack? how long have you had the lighter flywheel for? is there a noticable acceleration or power gain? i assume there would be, ie rev quicker = go through gears quicker = greater acceleration? thanks for your help, its appreciated
i don't know to much about if the engine had to be balanced or not, i left everything to my mechanic who i've been going to forever so i trust he did what was needed. I've had the new setup in since last november and since then put about 1500 miles on the car. As for the acceleration, it is definitely quicker than stock and it feels like my car has much more torque.
Hi everyone, this thread was started on clublexus in the sc300/400 section but it also applies to n/a supras so I copied it here.

I can’t seem to identify this piece after looking in the TSRM. It’s the circular piece in the image that attaches under the intake manifold. It connects to some small tubing. Wondering if it’s EGR VSV or EVAP related and if i even need it.
I already removed the EVAP canister, and deleted the...
Looking to replace the heater core hoses on a buddys NA-T. He's just using the stock ones at the moment. But would like to go to a silicone style like HPS has for the GTE's. I know they used to make an NA setup but it looks like they no longer do. And after talking with their sales...
ge and gte block are the same (minus compression, pistons ect, i know) so could i take the a built GTE shortblock and just simply bolt it to my head w/out having to replace anything else major? If i go this route I want to hold on to my NA head b/c i dont want to spend more money on an intake...
I blew my NA-T engine and am planing a rebuild/ strengthen of my engine. (GE VVTi engine) 1998 GS300. Going bonkers trying to figure out cc's of various components. I want to get away from the stock 10.5:1 ratio so I can run more than 8psi. I want to run 9.0:1 compression ideally. Is there...
