Default Lightweight flywheel for Accents

There isnt any lightweight flywheels for my Accent but I see them for Tiburons. I can get a beta transmission pretty cheap. Would it be a workable solution to attach the beta transmission to my alpha, with a new clutch and light flywheel or will I run into major problems? Will the ecu work or will I have to do a full blown beta swap with transmission, engine and ecu?

I don't think the Beta flywheel will work with the Alpha, but I'm not 100% positive. Your Alpha engine and Beta transmission combination should be possible, I think at least one person got that working but I don't remember the details or which flywheel they used.

The only logical solution is to do a Beta swap... Turbo optional...

Yes, you can use a Beta tranny with a Alpha engine. You have to use either a Scoupe Turbo or a 1.6L Alpha flywheel. (The Scoupe Turbo flywheel is lighter then the Alpha 1.6L).



It will require modifying the axles, we have used the combination of the X3/LC Automatic axles. This was mounted in a X3.

Yep; a different number of bolts holding it on would be the biggest problem. Nothing some creative use of JB weld can't fix.
