I would stick witht he Alu. Flywheel. I am running a Spec flywheel due to the low cost of it. A lot of people run a Fidanza but it is a couple hundred bucks more. $100 bucks is a $100 buck to me...

Yep sounds like a great price, Id call them and make sure it's for a 03 cobra thats pretty cheap. Yes it's 8 bolt crank (all cobra's are 8 bolt)

It looks different than this one

Price isn't everything. I'd go with the Fidanza wheel from Lethal, if it were me.
Lethal has a very good rep with customer support, not somethng that can be said about LFP.

I am actually using a stock flywheel from a 01 cobra. It is steel and only $90 from Ford. Have had it in for over a year now with no issues.

Plus, when it wears down, you can replace just the friction surface of the flywheel for $54. I'm not sure if you can do that with the cheaper flywheels.

Why not just refurbish(resurface) your stock cobra one, its aluminum and that would be the way to go if youre trying to save money.

We have had great experiences with the SPEC aluminum flywheels. The friction surface is replaceable on them also.

I'll PM you some pricing.

Aluminum=less weight, faster rpm drop. Less inertia.

Steel= More weight, Slower rpm drop but better drag launches because it has more inertia.


Again idk what i'm talking about.

I bought Larry's old one and the replaceable friction plate from Lethal, works GREAT so far!

Most guys I talked to said It could warp and I wouldnt get all my HP from the stock one and so forth. If im going to install a new clutch why not install a new FW aswell. Im thinking of buying Cobra Jacks I need one ASAP. If I just replace the friction insert it will be as good as a new one?? Doesnt the outer part of the FW wear down? Can someone explain that? Thanks

The only part that wears, other than the occasional ring gear, is the friction surface.
On this flywheel, the friction surface is made to be replaced when needed, so the flywheel is returned to a like new condition.

Im not sure, I see your point if youre getting a new clutch might as well get the FW. I havent heard many problems w resurfaced Fly Wheels. From personal experience aftermarket parts arent always better than stock. If youre gonna get one might as well spend the money and buy a good one like spec or fidanza.
