Ford Zetec SE / Sigma Lightweight Steel Flywheel
Ford Ford Zetec SE (Sigma)* lightweight steel flywheel to suit standard diameter Zetec SE clutch cover. Designed to replace the OE flywheel. Machined from billet steel, our flywheels feature an integral ring gear. Much lighter than the original flywheel.
By reducing the weight of the flywheel over the standard Zetec SE item to as little as a half, the resulting reduced inertia gives better acceleration, especially in the lower gears. In addition, the reduced weight at the flywheel edges allows quicker gear changes, and increased engine braking. Comes with integral starter ring (ring gear is machined into the flywheel).
For use with the standard Zetec / Sigma cover.
Suitable for use with our Zetec SE to Ford Gearbox Bellhousing.

The flywheel has a very high quality and precision. It works very well. The delivery was very fast and without any problems.
It fits like the former flywheel on my engine.
I can feel the difference on both first gears.
