I need my flywheel resurfaced, but does anybody know the specs for how much material can be removed? I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that Mitsu considers the OEM units non-serviceable, so there are no factory specs for them, but I'd like to have some guidelines to give the machine shop. Also, I am pretty sure it is not, but is a balancing required if it is just resurfaced and not lightened?
P.S. Anybody know any machine shop in the Maryland/Baltimore area that are experienced with Evo flywheels and also will do balancing if needed?

I ran into the same prob with my 2002 eclipse. I ended up buying a new flywheel because the dealer told me that the oem flywheel is concaved in design and that cannot be repliocated at a normal machine shop. Proper machining would cost more than the flywheel. I dont know if he was right but i figured i mind as well do it right the first time so i shelled out 200 on a new oem flywheel. I still have the old one lol......hope this helps answer your question
Have you seen the thread on here from the guy who's flywheel flew apart while under acceleration in 2nd gear? It totaled the car.
I have an ACT prolite. The quality was noticeably higher than the stocker it replaced. I wouldn't recommend Fidanza flywheels. I'm not a fan of the aluminum. 1 piece steel is where it's at for the flywheel.
