In case you wanted to know and were considering your lighter weight options... it is 17.8 lbs. I'll compare that to the OEM flywheel when I get it off, and I'll post a review of the clutch and flywheel swap. Nice thing is, I got the the flywheel for only $266! About $1000 less than the IS300 one.:suspiciou

Thought you had a JUN in there???

I'll find out exactly how bloated it is here in a bit. I'm using an OEM N/A Supra clutch too. I've picked up the flywheel and clutch, both sets of bearings, and rear main seal. When I get the flywheel bolts and slave cyl pushrod, in they go!

What is the exact weight of the stock flywheel?
I'm gonna replace my clutch soon and was wondering if I should get the N/A Supra flywheel or just upgrade to an aftermarket lightened flywheel.

car revved faster and seemed more responsive
Was it easy to stall? Did the car require a little more rev'ing than stock flywheel?

Weight on oe IS300 flywheel? Maybe looking for an upgrade...
I keep reading that it's around ~30lbs. What_it_is should post the results after getting his clutch job so we will know for sure.

I'll be doing a complete review with pics, weight of both, width on both flywheels, Supra part numbers I used, etc. here in a couple of weeks. I'm waiting for one last part to come in (Supra turbo slave cyl pushrod... a $9 part that is special ordered from Japan). Once I get it in I'll post it all up for you. Hopefully you can wait that long.

why do you have to special order that from japan? does it not come in the supra turbo sold in the US? is it 80mm?

Hey Chado, yes it comes with the US spec Supra Turbo, but no Toyota dealer or distributor had one in stock. The dealer just said they really don't do much Supra business any more. I assume a lot of the Supra work is done by specialists/tuners.

Tonynca, the part number for the pushrod itself is 31473-14030.

Once I get the whole swap done I'll post the complete list of parts used, to include the Toyota part numbers. The parts list puts it a little cheaper than something like a Fidanza/Clutchmasters etc. swap. I just want to wait until the swap is done before I post the parts list just in case there is an issue. I don't want someone taking my parts list as a sure thing and buying an incorrect part. More to come!
