There is one that site has alot of stuff, I ordered a performance chip from them and love it. The flywheel should increase your throttle repsonse times and can be a good mod. I would not do this as one of the first things however. There are alot more mods that you can do first that will also be cheaper.
cold air intake
i already have a chip i am going to get an exhaust cold air intake headers and the flywheel at the same time. The mechanic told me that the camshaft will make the car shake at idle speed it will make it feel like a racecar that's what he said. Is it still safe to put a camshaft in?
a flywheel does not actually increase hp but lets the engine rev faster. i believe a ltw flywheel helps the most in first and second gears. i plan to install a uuc stage 1 flywheel at the end of the month. and you will also probably need a m3 clutch.
The cam should not make the car shake if it is installed properly and timed right. Alot of people put in used M3 cams. There are some people here that have the cams try and search for them. I can't remember for sure but I think it was jrhaile. They are supposed to be a great mod especially if you have all the other stuff, you will need to reprogram your chip though. Depending on company they might do it for free, some charge $100 to do it.
I vote for cams now while you do all other stuff then flywheel later with clutch and short shift kit.
I am thinking about getting a AA tuning aluminum flywheel. Is this a good one? How do you time a cam shaft correctly? I though M3 cams can only go on M3 motors am i right or wrong? How do you reprogram a chip?
Right, you get whoever you bought the chip from to reprogram it for you. TurnerMotorSport is free for 6 months then after that charge $100 to do it(which is the price they sell the chip with the cam programing already on it $250+$100 reprogram=$350-price of cam chip)
AAtuning is supposed to be a reputable source also.
The one on aatuning says that it is for the M3 I don't know if you can use it for sure on your car. It weighs in at 12lbs and is $689. The one on turnermotorsports shows it is for the 92-95 3series. It weighs in at 10lbs and is $559.
I would go with the turnermotorsports.com flywheel. I trust both companies, but the turner one shows that it is made for my vehicle(and yours). Whereas the AA one says they only make one for the M3. PLus the turner is over $100 cheaper. I ordered my chip from them a couple of weeks ago and got it with free 2nd day air shipping, they may still be doing that also.
I would also not rule out the cams for later, that is supposed to be one of the best mods you can do, but I think you will be happy with all the stuff you are doing too. It is rare that someone starts to mod there car and says "ok I am done now, I will never do anything else", there is always something else. Keep the cams in mind.
OK from racing porsches and other cars a lightened flywheel is really not a good idea for a street car with manual transmission.. You will find it harder to keep the engine revs up while shifting and driving in traffic. Lot moreof a tendancy to stall the car.
For Autocross and racing yep is well worth the dollars if you have the engine/trans out so you can change it.
