It is a direct bolt on. Also a bit lighter than the stock Probe/ MX6 flywheel, not sure the exact weight difference though of the top of my head. Don't believe there are any downsides to it.

Yeah it bolts right up.

If you search on here you'll find the actual info, but I want to say the stock pgt flywheel is around 22lbs and the mx3 flywheel is around 15-18lbs, I think 18.

I did it and I think it is plenty, I don't think I would ever want a 9lb fidanza

It will let your car rev up faster, but that means it will also cause it to drops revs faster too.

With the mx3 flywheel it is noticeable, but not a problem. With a something lighter, I think the dropping revs would be too annoying "for me"

Just checked this morning, $82 Amazon. With 93lazer's suggestion, eBay and Amazon ....that makes 3 sources. Instead of being critical, try for a moment XRP to be helpful. I'm not perfect, but I do try.

IfI remember correctly a lot of guys were getting cut down KL cores when they bought MX3 Flys now those may be new reproduction just a heads up on that

Just going by memory here, but the "authentic" mx3 flywheel, from Mazda, should be stamped with K801. In case someone tries selling you one used.
