yeah the Mx3 should fit, just diddnt find one right away for the V6 engine. But I guess i'll go for the Fidanza since its even lighter. Not that I would notice much difference from the MX3 one. But there should be some difference still.

At the moment i've only found one Fidanza at http://gripforce.com/product/fidanza...e-gt-2.5l.html
377$

Dont know if I should keep on looking for cheaper one. Unless any of you allready know where to get them at a lower cost

Yeah, thx.
Thats 360 shipped in US
They want 200 extra to ship it to Norway :P

Found one at Jay Racing.
Total: $457.60 Shipped.

Still have to pay a buck or two in customs clearance etc.
(25% of the total price)
Should make it worth close to 600$ when it's across the border here lol
Cheap enough haha

You can get your flywheel machined down a lot cheaper than that I'm sure...I don't know how much weight you can shave off though.

Ive read a bit about shaving them down. But as it is shaved to alot less mass it's easier to break/crack. Usually it's shaved from 25pounds to 16 pounds.
The mx3 wheel is possible to shave down to about 12 I think.
The expensive Fidanza is 9 pounds and stll carries more mass than a shaved down wheel. And probably is more unlikely to crack. I think :-)

My solenoid vacuum switches connected to the EGR valve are broken.
Got a few new ones, did not want to block the EGR at this point.
