INTRODUCING THE JHM DL501 DSG LIGHTWEIGHT FLYWHEEL!!!
After years of research, development, prototyping, and testing lightweight flywheels, we are finally ready to release our highly anticipated DSG Lightweight Flywheel for the DL501 DSG Transmission commonly found in the B8 S4-S5-RS5, C7 S6-S7! We have been developing Lightweight Flywheels for Audis for over 10 years and we are pleased to now offer lightweight solutions for DSG Transmissions.
WHY A LIGHTWEIGHT FLYWHEEL?
Replacing the OEM, cast-iron, dual-mass flywheel with a single-mass, lightweight, aluminum piece reduces the overall weight of the rotating assembly of the motor. This frees up power in the motor and leads to increased throttle responsiveness. Changing the upper portion of the OEM flywheel to a single-mass unit also eliminates the potential for failure of the dual-mass unit. This is especially important for high-horsepower cars.
JHM LIGHTWEIGHT FLYWHEEL SPECIFICATIONS:
At JHM, we have weighed over a dozen OEM flywheels. We have seen a wide range of weight variances even on flywheels with the same part number! On average, the JHM Lightweight Flywheel weighs 10-12 lbs less compared to the OEM DL501 Flywheel. Our JHM DSG Lightweight Flywheel weighs just over 13lbs and is nearly 50% lighter depending on the weight of your heavy OEM Flywheel.
