    The Exedy lightweight flywheel that was on my car when I bought it caused it to stall and throw codes. The ACT StreetLite I have now is just heavy enough to not cause any problems.

    increase your idle RPM and it'll get rid of the stalling. Put your idle at 1000

    the ecu may throw check engine light on and you may have a code of cylinder misfire because your ecu will detect the lighter flywheel and think its cylinder problem. this is the price to pay for aftermarket upgrades

    when would the engine light and misfire code happen. right off the bat, or will it come up after time? i'm going to pick it up today so if i have no stalling or misfire codes is it safe to say that i'll be alright?

    No it's entirely possible it'll take a while for it to happen. It depends on your tune, mods, how you drive, and your particular car.

    The Verdict is in! Just got home from picking up my ride. The only negative thing that I noticed is that first gear is quick to want to stall. It's more sensitive and requires gas at the right moment or it will stall. I stalled once at a red light. It might just be me having to get used to the new clutch. Besides that once you're in first the gears are very responsive and firm. I like it a lot. Below are pics of the old hardware. Is my old flywheel still usable. If so I might resell it.
