BMW Lightweight Aluminum Flywheel Upgrades

BMW Lightweight Aluminum Flywheel Upgrades

hasmanufactured and supplied high quality lightweight aluminum flywheels to theperformance industry for over 25 years. JB is the original designer andmanufacturer of the BMW E36 aluminum flywheel. JB Racing is constantly expandingtheir flywheel line to include the latest performance applications such as; MiniCooper and BMW E46 325/330, and Z4 utilizing the new 6-speed (SMG) transmission. ALL of the current dual-mass replacement flywheels are designed to accommodatemost of the common sprung-hub clutch discs to minimize the gearbox “rattle.”Sachs, S.P.E.C., Clutch Net, and others manufacture sprung-hub discs that willclear in the center hub cavity of these flywheels.

All of their flywheels are designed, manufactured, and assembled in-house attheir  Florida facility which allows to maintain stringent quality control.You simply cannot buy a higher quality lightweight aluminum BMW flywheel… atany price!

For accurate results, specify your model below.
E30 325e JB Racing Lightweight Aluminum Flywheel (Replaces Dual-Mass Flywheel) Aluminum flywheels are much lighter than the stock steel flywheel and that produces better throttle response and more available horsepower to the wheels for faster acceleration. The JB Racing aluminum flywheels are a direct replacement for the stock flywheel and work with stock clutch components for an easy upgrade with very little downside.

Modern flywheels are built with additional components and features that are designed to dampen and minimize vibrations from the engine and transmission. As a result they have become bloated in weight and that means more energy is used up just making the flywheel spin. The weight difference between an aluminum and steel flywheel is huge - sometimes more than 50% less. Without the additional mass, more energy can be diverted to where it counts most - moving the car. The flywheel and clutch is one of the first areas that engine builders address when making the rotating assembly lighter for race engines. The dampening effect is just not needed on cars that are focused on performance.

In addition to releasing more power to the wheels, the lighter flywheel allows the engine to spin more freely, which improves throttle response. Again, the difference is huge as you watch the revs build faster than before. With the engine spinning easier the power band comes up much sooner. The stock steel flywheel feels lazy in comparison. There is a driving adjustment required to get used to how much faster the engine revs but that's not really a downside.

The JB lightweight flywheel is designed to be used with a factory organic clutch - the same clutch kit that you would get from any BMW dealer. This makes replacement clutch components easy to source and inexpensive when compared to specialized racing clutches. By using the factory BMW clutch, JB has also made the whole assembly easy to live with when used on the street. The clutch behaves the same as it originally did - just with better throttle response and more power! The JB flywheel can also be rebuilt with a new clutch contact surface - you don't have to buy a new flywheel.

Aluminum flywheels are considered 'single-mass' flywheels because they do not have the same dampening designs as an original 'dual-mass' flywheel. With a single-mass design more noise and vibration may be noticeable. There are steps you can take to minimize the noise - heavier weight transmission oil and clutch discs with anti-rattle springs (sprung-hub clutch).

The JB flywheel includes ignition trigger wheel.

This flywheel replaces the stock original dual-mass flywheel and should only be used with the corresponding 'dual-mass' clutch kit. According to BMW the dual mass flywheel was installed in all 325/325e from 5/86 on but we have seen some later cars with a single-mass flywheel. The age of the car almost guarantees one or more clutch replacements and possibly a change to the original flywheel as well. You may not know which flywheel is currently installed until the flywheel cover or the transmission is removed.

Stock Flywheel Weight = 27.5lbs
JB Flywheel Weight = 10.0lbs

This item fits the following BMWs:
1984-1988 E30 BMW 325e 325es (with dual mass flywheel)

E36/E46 ECS Performance Lightweight Flywheel

Lightweight flywheels have proven themselves to be a worthwhile performance enhancement. But with the quicker throttle response and horsepower improvement comes one serious drawback: flywheel chatter. Without the dual-mass flywheel's rubber isolators, a lightweight aluminum flywheel has more rattle than stock. ECS has designed this flywheel using chrom-moly steel and it weighs almost ten pounds less than the stock DMF but not as extreme as full aluminum flywheels. The steel helps dampen vibration and noise so you get near-factory refinement and most of the benefits of a lightweight flywheel: quicker throttle response, better reliability, and more power to the wheels. Zero-balanced and SFI 1.1 certified (material and design has been independently burst tested to ensure quality and safety). This flywheel requires the E34 M5 sprung hub clutch kit. Choose below from the flywheel only or a complete kit.

Modern flywheels are built with additional components that are designed to dampen and minimize vibrations from the engine and transmission. Weight has increased and reliability has decreased. With additional weight more energy is required for it to move. A lightweight flywheel does away with the dual mass design and its additional mass so more energy can be diverted to where it counts most - moving the car. The flywheel and clutch is one of the first areas that engine builders address when making the rotating assembly lighter for race engines. The dampening effect is just not needed on cars that are focused on performance. And with a single-mass flywheel the unreliable DMF design is eliminated.

Stock flywheel weight - 25.0lbs
ECS flywheel weight = 16.55lbs

E46 M3 6MT JB Racing Lightweight Aluminum Flywheel Aluminum flywheels are much lighter than the stock steel flywheel and that produces better throttle response and more available horsepower to the wheels for faster acceleration. The JB Racing aluminum flywheels are a direct replacement for the stock flywheel and work with stock clutch components for an easy upgrade with very little downside.

Modern flywheels are built with additional components and features that are designed to dampen and minimize vibrations from the engine and transmission. As a result they have become bloated in weight and that means more energy is used up just making the flywheel spin. The weight difference between an aluminum and steel flywheel is huge - sometimes more than 50% less. Without the additional mass, more energy can be diverted to where it counts most - moving the car. The flywheel and clutch is one of the first areas that engine builders address when making the rotating assembly lighter for race engines. The dampening effect is just not needed on cars that are focused on performance.

In addition to releasing more power to the wheels, the lighter flywheel allows the engine to spin more freely, which improves throttle response. Again, the difference is huge as you watch the revs build faster than before. With the engine spinning easier the power band comes up much sooner. The stock steel flywheel feels lazy in comparison. There is a driving adjustment required to get used to how much faster the engine revs but that's not really a downside.

The JB lightweight flywheel is designed to be used with a factory organic clutch - the same clutch kit that you would get from any BMW dealer. This makes replacement clutch components easy to source and inexpensive when compared to specialized racing clutches. By using the factory BMW clutch, JB has also made the whole assembly easy to live with when used on the street. The clutch behaves the same as it originally did - just with better throttle response and more power! The JB flywheel can also be rebuilt with a new clutch contact surface - you don't have to buy a new flywheel.

Aluminum flywheels are considered 'single-mass' flywheels because they do not have the same dampening designs as an original 'dual-mass' flywheel. With a single-mass design more noise and vibration may be noticeable. There are steps you can take to minimize the noise - heavier weight transmission oil and clutch discs with anti-rattle springs (sprung-hub clutch). In addition to the standard replacement clutches, we also sell Sachs Performance sprung hub clutches that also work with the JB flywheels.

E46 M3 JB Racing Ultra-Light Racing Clutch/Flywheel Assembly The ultimate in a racing flywheel and clutch! This was developed for use in our E36 and E46 World Challenge Touring Cars. The combined weight of the clutch and flywheel is only 11lbs!!!

This multi-disc (2 or 3 disc setups) offer a minimal flywheel mass (enough to include a factory ring gear for the starter) and a small 5.5" clutch assembly rated to 500ft-lbs. By saving as much weight as possible less energy is used in simply spinning the flywheel/clutch assembly and that means a lot more power and torque is available at the drive wheels. The flywheel and clutch is one of the first areas that engine builders address when making the rotating assembly lighter for race engines and this is among the most advanced and lightest racing clutch kits available for your BMW race car.

The JB Ultra-Light Performance racing clutch is available in 2-disc or 3-disc setups. A 3-disc setup is less susceptible to heat and will have a higher torque capacity. On our M54-powered 325i Touring Cars (approximately 300hp) we used the 5.5"/140mm 2-disc configuration. The 5.5" clutch was a perfect blend of performance and durability. It wasn't too small to suffer from high temperatures and wasn't too large that it couldn't be slipped (slipping prevents damage to other components). This is a turn-key racing clutch and flywheel kit that you don't have to engineer or spec yourself. This is the same clutch setup we used when winning the 2003 and 2004 Touring Car Championships - the quality and performance is unquestionable. That series also employed standing starts at each race and this clutch setup performed flawlessly with nearly a full season of racing on them before needing a change.

JB Ultra-Light flywheels include:
  • precision CNC machined aluminum flywheel
  • zero-balanced
  • replaceable hardened steel clutch friction surface
  • Helicoil threaded inserts
  • high-strength grade 10.9 hardware
  • multi-disc Sachs or Powertrain Technology racing clutch with racing pressure plate
  • JB Racing throw-out bearing with custom bobbin
    This is a true racing clutch and will not function as a street-able clutch at all. It behaves as an on/off switch with no slippage allowed. Extreme care must be used when driving on to trailers and around the paddock. But when driven correctly the life span of this clutch is amazing - we could get a full season of racing a 300hp M54 from this clutch setup including standing starts at every race! Replacement clutch components and flywheel rebuilding are available.

    A properly adjusted clutch stop is required for use with this clutch kit.

    Stock Flywheel + Clutch Weight = 45+lbs

    E36, E46, Z3, Z4 JB Racing Midweight Steel Flywheel Want the benefits of a lightweight flywheel but are put off by all the talk of 'flywheel rattle'? This machined steel flywheel slots in between a heavy original dual mass steel and the lightweight aluminum flywheels. It weighs in at 15.5lbs - providing better throttle response and power gains without losing factory-type refinement.

    Modern flywheels are built with additional components and features that are designed to dampen and minimize vibrations from the engine and transmission. As a result they have become bloated in weight and that means more energy is used up just making the flywheel spin. A lightweight flywheel does away with the dual mass design and its additional mass so more energy can be diverted to where it counts most - moving the car. The flywheel and clutch is one of the first areas that engine builders address when making the rotating assembly lighter for race engines. The dampening effect is just not needed on cars that are focused on performance.

    In addition to releasing more power to the wheels, the lighter flywheel allows the engine to spin more freely, which improves throttle response. The engine revs much faster than before. With the engine spinning easier the power band comes up much sooner. There is a driving adjustment required to get used to how much faster the engine revs but that's not really a downside.

    JB Racing has engineered this flywheel to accept the E36 M3's 240mm clutch. This opens up a lot of clutch and pressure plate options but we typically used this with a stock Sachs OEM clutch kit. This makes replacement clutch components easy to source and inexpensive when compared to specialized racing clutches. The Sachs sprung hub clutch kit can also work for greater torque capacity and silent operation.

    Lightweight flywheels are considered 'single-mass' flywheels because they do not have the same dampening designs as an original 'dual-mass' flywheel. With a single-mass design more noise and vibration may be noticeable but since this flywheel is not as 'radical' as our other lightweight designs the gear rattle and other noises should be kept to a minimum. There are steps you can take to minimize the noise - heavier weight transmission oil and clutch discs with anti-rattle springs (sprung-hub clutch). In addition to the standard replacement clutches, we also sell Sachs Performance sprung hub clutches that also work with the JB flywheels.

There is a driving adjustment required to get used to how much faster the engine revs but that's not really a downside.

    The JB lightweight flywheel is designed to be used with a factory organic clutch - the same clutch kit that you would get from any BMW dealer. This makes replacement clutch components easy to source and inexpensive when compared to specialized racing clutches. By using the factory BMW clutch, JB has also made the whole assembly easy to live with when used on the street. The clutch behaves the same as it originally did - just with better throttle response and more power! The JB flywheel can also be rebuilt with a new clutch contact surface - you don't have to buy a new flywheel.

    Aluminum flywheels are considered 'single-mass' flywheels because they do not have the same dampening designs as an original 'dual-mass' flywheel. With a single-mass design more noise and vibration may be noticeable. There are steps you can take to minimize the noise - heavier weight transmission oil and clutch discs with anti-rattle springs (sprung-hub clutch).

    E30 325i, E34 525i, E36 325i JB Racing Lightweight Aluminum Flywheel (Replaces Dual-Mass Flywheel) Aluminum flywheels are much lighter than the stock steel flywheel and that produces better throttle response and more available horsepower to the wheels for faster acceleration. The JB Racing aluminum flywheels are a direct replacement for the stock flywheel and work with stock clutch components for an easy upgrade with very little downside.

    Modern flywheels are built with additional components and features that are designed to dampen and minimize vibrations from the engine and transmission. As a result they have become bloated in weight and that means more energy is used up just making the flywheel spin. The weight difference between an aluminum and steel flywheel is huge - sometimes more than 50% less. Without the additional mass, more energy can be diverted to where it counts most - moving the car. The flywheel and clutch is one of the first areas that engine builders address when making the rotating assembly lighter for race engines. The dampening effect is just not needed on cars that are focused on performance.

    On the E30 325i, this flywheel replaces the stock original dual-mass flywheel and should only be used with the corresponding 'dual-mass' clutch kit. According to BMW the dual mass flywheel was installed in all 325i from 12/86 on but we have seen some later cars with a single-mass flywheel. The age of the car almost guarantees one or more clutch replacements and possibly a change to the original flywheel as well. You may not know which flywheel is currently installed until the flywheel cover or the transmission is removed.

    E36, E46, Z3, Z4 HD Clutch and Flywheel Kit As Used on Project E36 M3
    This lightweight aluminum flywheel w/ Heavy Duty "sprung-hub" clutch package is the best-engineered solution for the BMW E36, E46, Z3, and Z4 models. Instead of picking a clutch from another car that may or may not work at all, the engineers at JB Racing have taken all of the guess work out of this upgrade and incorporated a Sachs HD sprung hub clutch with the correct pressure plate and combined it with our most-popular aluminum lightweight flywheel. The Sachs HD clutch disc has a sprung hub to minimize noise and vibration and organic linings to give the feel and engagement of a stock clutch. Mixing and matching of the incorrect clutch, pressure plate, and flywheel components can lead to inconsistent engagement and feel -- why make your clutch feel worse?

    In addition, the Sachs HD pressure plate will clamp with greater force -- allowing approximately 350 ft-lbs of torque,which makes it an obvious upgrade from the stock clutch kit. And with the aluminum flywheel weight savings is substantial over the stock dual-mass flywheel - which allows your motor to spool up faster and transmit more HP to the ground.

    Because Sachs is an OE supplier to most German cars, replacement parts are just a phone call away. This kit uses the stock throw-out bearing (included in the price!).

    E36, E46 JB Racing Ultra-Light Racing Clutch/Flywheel Assembly The ultimate in a racing flywheel and clutch! This was developed for use in our E36 and E46 World Challenge Touring Cars. The combined weight of the clutch and flywheel is only 11lbs!!!

    This multi-disc (2 or 3 disc setups) offer a minimal flywheel mass (enough to include a factory ring gear for the starter) and a small 5.5" clutch assembly rated to 500hp. By saving as much weight as possible less energy is used in simply spinning the flywheel/clutch assembly and that means a lot more power and torque is available at the drive wheels. The flywheel and clutch is one of the first areas that engine builders address when making the rotating assembly lighter for race engines and this is among the most advanced and lightest racing clutch kits available for your BMW race car.

    The JB Ultra-Light Performance racing clutch is available in 2-disc or 3-disc setups. We used the 5.5"/140mm size in our Touring Cars but larger sizes are available too. This is a turn-key racing clutch and flywheel kit that you don't have to engineer or spec yourself. This is the same clutch setup we used when winning the 2003 and 2004 Touring Car Championships - the quality and performance is unquestionable. That series also employed standing starts at each race and this clutch setup performed flawlessly with nearly a full season of racing on them before needing a change.

    JB Ultra-Light flywheels include:
  • precision CNC machined aluminum flywheel
  • zero-balanced up to 10,000 RPM
  • replaceable hardened steel clutch friction surface
  • Helicoil threaded inserts
  • high-strength grade 10.9 hardware
  • multi-disc racing clutch with Performance racing pressure plate
  • JB Racing throw-out bearing with custom bobbin
    This is a true racing clutch and will not function as a street-able clutch at all. It behaves as an on/off switch with no slippage allowed. Extreme care must be used when driving on to trailers and around the paddock. But when driven correctly the life span of this clutch is amazing - we could get a full season of racing a 300hp M54 from this clutch setup including standing starts at every race! Replacement clutch components and flywheel rebuilding are available.

    A properly adjusted clutch stop is required for use with this clutch kit.

    The JB Ultra-Light Performance E30 M3 racing clutch is available only in a 2-disc setup. The 2-disc configuration is considered more than adequate for the S14's torque output. Anything with more torque capacity is not advisable as the lack of slip could damage other components in the transmission and engine crankshaft. On our M54-powered 325i Touring Cars (approximately 300hp) we used the 5.5"/140mm 2-disc configuration. The 5.5" clutch was a perfect blend of performance and durability. It wasn't too small to suffer from high temperatures and wasn't too large that it couldn't be slipped (slipping prevents damage to other components). This is a turn-key racing clutch and flywheel kit that you don't have to engineer or spec yourself. This is the same clutch setup we used when winning the 2003 and 2004 Touring Car Championships - the quality and performance is unquestionable. That series also employed standing starts at each race and this clutch setup performed flawlessly with nearly a full season of racing on them before needing a change.

    JB Ultra-Light flywheels include:
  • precision CNC machined aluminum flywheel
  • zero-balanced
  • replaceable hardened steel clutch friction surface
  • Helicoil threaded inserts
  • high-strength grade 10.9 hardware
  • multi-disc Sachs or Powertrain Technology racing clutch with racing pressure plate
  • JB Racing throw-out bearing with custom bobbin
    This is a true racing clutch and will not function as a street-able clutch at all. It behaves as an on/off switch with no slippage allowed. Extreme care must be used when driving on to trailers and around the paddock. But when driven correctly the life span of this clutch is amazing - we could get a full season of racing a 300hp M54 from this clutch setup including standing starts at every race! Replacement clutch components and flywheel rebuilding are available.

    A properly adjusted clutch stop is required for use with this clutch kit.

    Stock Flywheel + Clutch Weight = 40+lbs
    JB Ultra-Light Flywheel & Clutch Weight = 11lbs
