    you people need to stop judging so fast. Taiwan has every manufacturing capability the USA has. my getrag 240 already sounds like a honda with blown rod bearings clutch out in neutral so I dont even give a shit. a g240 is what like $100?

      Toes - A good g240 is $100-150, but still you want a good running one ... you do what you want to do to your car bud. I think people are bringing up valid points - not a job you want to do twice if you don't have to.

        I got nothing agents Taiwan at all. Leaps forward from China. however, that flywheel is not going to be very fun. just sayin. Maybe it will, let us know.

          Toes, they aren't judging the quality, there's a reason the stock flywheel has some noticeable weight to it.

            I've seen cheap Asian coil overs break. Taiwan made wheels break. I just can't trust anything made from certain areas. There is a reason a made in USA JB fly is 500+ quality handmade parts cost.


            Edit: I've known 2 people to buy the cheapo "F1" racing flywheel on eBay, and when flywheel was placed on a flat surface. It was warped. Shitty build quality, for cheap parts

                  That's so true.. Takes me about 30 min to just get the car high enough to get under! Maybe a few Instagram and beer brakes but hey! What a shit head. I'm sick of Napa or Shucks employees thinking they know what their talking about.

                    True haha jack stands and all that takes a while

                    I quit talking to the one guy at the local Napa because he's such a dickhead. I brought in an exhaust gasket off my corvette motor to get another because 1 got lost during shipping and he was like, "nope, Corvettes don't have those, its not in my computer." I was like "I took this out of my Corvette, of course it has them!" He's like "Couldn't possibly have one, I haven't seen one of those used on Chevys since the mid 90s trucks." I just walked out, screw arguing

                        My bc's are solid. I beat the shit out of my car and they're the only thing that doesn't break.

                          Agreed, heard nothing but great things about BC... Like anything else, American doesn't always mean better. (Should I bring up Pontiac or even the meth lab Aztek) tired of hearing that. Are you kidding me? our e30's are made in Germany. Give me a break.
