Ok the set-up is 383 sbc stroker..... etc.. etc..
Were using a th-400... I was wondering what type of flywheel should I get..
TCI has a few for around 100 dollars..
Then all the other billets and etc. are around 200-400...
Is the extra money worth the billet flywheels.. or is it a gimmick....
Also what does the Tooth count matter... I know its like 152 and 168 or something like that... Which one is better. or is it not a performance thing??

What's this goin in??
dunno about the billet.....
as far as tooth count, I think it matters, as the starter's in summit usually say "for 152 tooth flywheel", etc....

If your talking about a two piece rear main seal crank. There are two different types of flexplates for the small block, one for internally ballanced cranks 265-350 CID and one for externally ballanced cranks 400 CID small block, the one you need depends on the crankshaft that was used in your stroker kit. Some use internally and some use externally ballanced. Get a hold of the maker of your kit and they will tell you which one you need. I dont know the one piece cranks and newer stuff that much.
As far as billets go, dont waste your money unless its a high RPM/horsepower motor. If your going to race it at the track a little and drive it on the street mostly I would get one that is SFI rated.
The tooth count goes with the starter. If your starter has the mounting bolts straight across from each other and one is shorter than the other you need the lower tooth count, if your starter has the bolts stagered and there the same length then you need the higher tooth count. If your buying a new starter then I would go with the higher tooth count and get the hightorque starter, If your going to use one of the mini starters then you need what they tell you you need. You will more than likely have to shim the starter either way you go. Most new starters come with a couple in the box
