The Viggen pp can certainly take a decent amount of power when paired with the right disk. The po of my car put down 286whp/340wtq last year...clutch doesn't slip, although I doubt it will anytime soon with a spec stg3 disk.

Palmer has a 300+ (mustang dyno)whp 9-3, it has a Viggen PP, although it was slipping on the dyno.

I ran the stock Viggen disc and plate for 2+ years with 280 lb-ft, then 390 lb-ft...

No slippage, and the disc looked OK when I took it out earlier this year. The car's getting a SPEC disc and the same Viggen PP when it goes back together....

Yes, I need a new disc soon. Probably a spec...


I'll be staying with the viggen PP though.

yes do it when you doing the clutch cause you will regret it if you don't down the road when you have to install it or have to pay again to have it installed.

rev's will increase faster. no HP gains think of it along the same lines as weight reduction.

You will losing alot of rotational mass, and you will notice major increase on RPM response. It will rev up faster compared with the stock flywheel.

ya, and the car will be more touchy. the add mass from the stock flywheel made the car not as jerky when you let off the gas and hit the gas.

Dude did you read the review I put up on Nicks site. Trust me your going to love the change it makes for the car. It's subtle at first till you really start playing with the car and driving it hard....thats when you'll really notice the difference. 1st was obviously useless in a stage 3 and I had full use of 2nd all when I had the OEM flywheel. Once I put in the spec flywheel......1st became even sillier and requires careful throttling to keep it useful (about 1/4 throttle) and 2nd is like what 1st use to be like....it breaks loose once the boost hits. Heel toe is very crisp and percise.
