Hmm ok. I am all for shifts feeling more mechanical, though it seems hard to imagine mine could get any more mechanical. Operating my shifter feels like a bolt action rifle haha. Might look into this. Wonder if there is one on the ATS I could remove, that shifter could definitely stand to feel more mechanical.
I have always wanted a lighter flywheel, but not sure how much lighter you can go with everything else being stock and not throw off the engine balance. I feel like the revs in my Accord are pretty lively, but maybe a flywheel that was 8-10 lbs less would be perfect.
I'd be willing to bet the ATS has one. Too modern to not, in my opinion. I do want a lighter flywheel as well, but for now the dual-mass will have to do.
On the other hand, I just did a 800 mile road trip down to Helen, GA and back in the TL. Got to do some mountain roads in it, and it was a great time. LSD trans feels much better than the Accord's, so I'll have to swap my spare TL trans in there sometime lol. No issues with the motor or drivetrain, all of which were just taken apart and put back in a month prior. Feels good and scary at the same time, knowing that I took an engine apart and put it back together and nothing has broken.
