Default flywheel advice

hi everyone, i recently ran into a starting problem with my fidanza flywheel, the ring gear seperated itself from the flywheel itself, so i decided to upgrade, the PO went with a 1.6 flywheel and clutch package( dont know why) but i figured i'd upgrade, I got a good deal on a act street disc clutch kit, and was wondering what everyone thought of the street lite flywheel? any bad experiences? any help or any other info appreciated

I had a Pro Lite flywheel on my 2000 Civic Si years ago. I never had a problem with it. ACT has always made good products, unless I missed the memo and the quality went down hill in the last 10 years. As I recall I put about 30k very rough miles on it and it came out looking pretty good.

I recently installed a streetlite flywheel on my car. I was a little disappointed not to notice any difference at all from stock, but maybe that's what you're going for. I'd go with something lighter if I had to do it again, but I seem to read people crying about light flywheels all the time so who knows.

The Streetlite is ~5.2lbs lighter than stock according to my bathroom scale.
