Flywheel Question

I did an Auto to T5 swap
I need a flywheel and don't want to pay 300+ for one.
I know this flywheel will work, but its cheap.
Anyone ever use this site, and will this flywheel fall apart eventually?

I'm a very firm believer in you get what you pay for. I wouldn't recommend sticking a $50.00 flywheel in any car. It is also not exactly a lot of fun to replace a flywheel, let alone having to do it twice to replace a low quality part.

Factory used the Sachs flywheels ( most that I have seen are under $75.00 ) in the t5. Normally I would recommend to go with what was used oem, but there are much better options than the sachs. Remember, spend more now, to save a headache later.

I just did a spec clutch kit and spec steel flywheel and couldn't be happier ( Well, should have gone with the aluminum one ). Much better than stock. Some stuff you can get away with going a little cheaper on. I wouldn't suggest a flywheel being one of them.

What is the most you are willing to spend? And what will the car be used for?

The only time I used auto-parts store is when I'm using O'rielly's, I like them much better than auto zone and pep boys. Advance auto, at least around me, is the worst place you can go. Almost every part I have gotten from them, tools inlcuded, has failed.

Also when ordering from those places I always suggest getting the motorcraft parts if possible, as they are much higher quality than their cheapo store brand parts.

I mean its my DD, but i do like to have a little fun with it. Im looking for a clutch kit and flywheel.
I have the money to spend like 200 on a flywheel and 200-300 on clutch. I just didnt really want to go that expensive on a flywheel if possible.
What are my options on a clutch and flywheel? I dont want a stiff clutch pedal and i would like it to be a good performing on in case i do some HP mods.

Could you guys help me find a good flywheel for a reasonable price? I really wish my auto flywheel would work for the manual

I like rockauto.com. They sell stuff much cheaper than autopart stores. You still have to be careful what you buy and research it first, as they do carry the low quality junk too.

AC Delco clutch kits and flywheels aren't a bad way too go. My buddy owns a shop and thats what they use with no customer complaints in years. I think he said they have a decent warranty as well, though I dont know how long the warranty is good for.

Made me a little mad, when I went to buy the 100 dollar flywheel, then when I added it to my cart it just randomly disappeared and didn't come back up. Good thing I had the part number so I still was aboul to buy it.
