    Review & Install Video

    Hey everybody, Alex with americanmuscle.com. Today I'm bringing you my quick review and breakdown of McLeod Racing's Aluminum 8-Bolt Flywheel, fitting the 2015 through 2017 Mustang GT. So the McLeod Racing Aluminum Flywheel that we're taking a look at today is gonna be a great option for any 2015 through 2017 Mustang owner out there that's looking to shed some weight out of their drivetrain, as well as the Mustang owner that might be doing a clutch job at the same time.So this is not only something that's gonna be lighter than the factory unit, but a larger piece of the puzzle here is gonna be shedding down on that rotational mass, which to you and me on the road, that essentially means that your car's gonna pull a little bit easier through the gears, and overall, just feel that much better. But while we're on topic here, if you are in the process of picking up a McLeod clutch, it's gonna be a great time to get that flywheel, too, everything's gonna be wide open. But being said, you should expect a very involved three outta three wrenches on our difficulty meter here, and at least a four-hour job.So this SFI certified flywheel is CNC'd outta a billet aluminum. We're also gonna see that this is going to come in at around 14 and a half pounds, in comparison to the factory unit's 23 pounds. Now while there's owners out there that think that aluminum is just not gonna be tough enough for a high horsepower application, having that SFI certification is gonna be critical to get you and your car down the track. Now, I will mention that with this zero balanced aluminum flywheel, this is going to make a little bit of noise. It's gonna chatter just a touch, but it's something that's really unavoidable with a flywheel of this nature. But being said, the pros outweigh the cons here, guys. With that aluminum construction, it's gonna help your GT rev that much more freely, feel that much better driving around at the end of the day. And while you could theoretically pair this with any clutch out there, in our humble opinion, we're gonna suggest that you pair this with a McLeod unit.Now in terms of the pricing, you should expect to be shelling out about 380 bucks for this unit. Now, I'll throw it out there, there are other options that will cost less, as well as costing more, but it's really gonna be dependent upon what you're using your car for. But again, guys, you're getting away with an SFI certified part, that aluminum construction, which is, again, gonna help shed that rotational mass, along with weight, and ultimately something that's just gonna make your car drive that much better.We'll begin to the installation portion of the video. Like I had said up top, if you're gonna be getting into a flywheel, it really makes the most sense to get into a clutch at the same time. Either way, it's still gonna warrant a very involved three outta three wrenches on our difficulty meter here, and at least a four-hour job.Now looking ahead here, this is definitely something that will require the entire tool box. If you don't have access to a lift, it might be a decent time to find a buddy that has one. Or you could do it on a set of jack stands, it might just be a little bit on the uncomfortable side. But at a glance here, you're gonna need to remove your shifter down to your entire exhaust system. We're talking pulling the driveshaft down in the bell housing, cross member, lastly, you're gonna need to pull that clutch in order to access the flywheel. Again, a pretty involved three outta three wrenches here, and at least a four-hour job.I'm Alex, and that's my quick review and breakdown of McLeod Racing's Billet Aluminum Flywheel, fitting the 8-bolt main for your 2015 through 2017 Mustang GT, available right here at americanmuscle.com.

    Peace of Mind. When replacing or upgrading your Mustang's clutch you have two options, resurfacing your old stock flywheel, or getting a brand new flywheel. A new flywheel is a much better choice than resurfacing, as it will dictate how well your new clutch will perform, as well as how long it will last.

    Aluminum Construction. Manufactured from aluminum for light weight, this McLeod Flywheel features a ring gear of 164 teeth, an engine balance of 0 oz, and a eight bolt main pattern. Aluminum flywheels are perfect for force inducted applications where rapid RPM levels are desired.

    SFI Certified. If you're using this flywheel in high performance or racing applications, SFI Certification is critical so you can run your Pony at the track or strip. And it's great for peace of mind even in a daily driver - at higher RPMs, stock cast flywheels have been known to explode.

    Application. This McLeod Flywheel Fits 2015-2017 GT Mustangs with an eight bolt main. This is the perfect companion to your new McLeod Clutch.

    Will this flywheel cause a lot noise/rattle when the clutch is not engaged? I've seen several cars now with "light weight" flywheels and they can be obnoxiously noisy.

    • Yes, the lighter the flywheel, the more susceptible to chatter it is.

      MCLEOD flywheel

      To new to tell. Just had Ford install this flywheel with my 1000hp rated twin disc clutch by McLeod. It really grabs; in fact, I will need a new driveshaft per Ford as sticky tires plus a supercharged Pony will cause the factory shaft to snap.

      Fun project putting this bad boy in!!!

      I got this right before I put in my hellion TwinTurbo kit and it might have taken me a long time but It was annoying and irritating to put in, it was very fun and kept my attention. I highly recommend this product it feels amazing with the McLeod 1000hp RXD clutch
