Default Whats the Diffrences between an alluminum and billet flywheel

So what are the pros and cons for the two. Would there be a better choice for forced induction and hi horse power.

Weight. The lighter aluminum flywheels are usually the choice for road racing where stopping and starting aren't issues and you want to build revs fast out of corners. Billet flywheels are the best steel option (better than cast) and work best for street applications where you stop and go frequently.

No matter what, you should upgrade the flywheel over the stock one in a performance application. Both peices are stronger than stock, and both are SFI approved.

However, a heavier flywheel is, at least in my expirience, easier to drive on the street and easier to launch.
