1998 Flywheels & Flexplates

An Important Link

Though the flywheel — a large-diameter toothed disc — in your 1998 Mustang looks like a relatively simple component, you should know that it serves a very important purpose: All of your engine’s power passes through your flywheel via your clutch and pressure plate. Bolted to your crankshaft, your flywheel spins and, thanks to friction from the pressure plate, transmits your engine’s rotational forces into your transmission, down your driveshaft and to your rear wheels.

When the surface of your flywheel is no longer flat and even, it can chatter and vibrate under acceleration. Not only is this annoying, but it represents wasted energy that isn’t getting to your wheels. When you’re trying to make it to the end of the drag strip or around the track ahead of the competition, any loss of power is a problem.

Upgrading your stock flywheel or flexplate to a heavy-duty performance version from CJ Pony Parts means you can enjoy all of the power your engine can put out. It’s also a necessary upgrade if you have tuned your engine for more power. Your stock flywheel or flexplate simply wasn’t designed for extra power, which is why the automotive aftermarket has responded with some impressive flywheels and flexplates with much higher power ratings.

Less Rotational Mass

Not only do you want your flywheel or flexplate to be solid, you want it as light as possible. The heavier your flywheel or flexplate is, the more energy is needed to spin it. Choosing a high performance yet lightweight CJ Pony Parts flywheel or flexplate for your 1998 Mustang is a great way to meet your performance goals.
