Ive never in my life seen a automatic with a flywheel on it. Kinda serves no purpose cause the flat surface for your clutch plates would be useless.
Automatics come with a flex plate, the torq converter acts as the mass to keep the engine turning between pulses at idle.
What all is involved in converting, as in, what comes with this 'kit'? I would think it would just be a matter of swapping out the dual mass for a standard flywheel...
I would guess that I still have the stock clutch in my red truck, and since installing the DP Tuner, I'm guessing it might not live long... so I plan to start gathering parts (and info) so I'm ready when replacment time comes. Having a flywheel, clutch and related parts sitting on the shelf means all I gotta do is drop the trans and put it in, not wait while I scrounge up the cash to buy it.
What are the (dis)advantages of standard and dual mass flywheels?
