I was just asking because I don’t know how the laws are over there and the single mass flywheel will throw a code unless you disable it with ktuner or hondata

Yeah that’s true, but even then, disable is only a temporary delete. It’s always going to be stored so it can be monitored. In my opinion the dual mass flywheel is all we need which is what we have, no codes, no issues.

Just ordered my fx350 and single mass flywheel :) and not a moment too soon. Stock clutch + bolt ons and water meth= no more stock clutch.

Can't wait to add a turbo kit to my setup!
Where did you grab the single Mass flywheel from? I'm running a fx350 myself but rigid disc on the oem dmf curious to hear your review. First gear is a chattery mofo on this setup I have lol holds great though once youre moving. I also wonder if it will throw any misfire codes

FKXRacing if you DM on instagram he is a vendor for Clutchmasters single mass flywheel. Yes it will throw codes that you can disable using via ktuner or hondata with the misfire disable option.

Thanks yeah that's a no go for me in Massachusetts can't have any codes not ready for emissions testing unfortunately hopefully other options come out that will work at some point. Just gonna abuse what I have for now until it goes lol

I would of went duel mass if the option was there. I have ktuner and I plan on disabling the code. They just do visual inspections here in Maine. And the shop that's doing the install for me is inspecting it for me as well. There aware of the code that will be thrown.

Dang you guys have it easy with only a visual inspection. I saw that those from Cumberland County is required to do

The Maine enhanced inspection involves the following:
  • All processes described above for the safety inspection.
  • A fuel tank cap test on gasoline-powered vehicles model year 1974 and newer.
  • An on-board diagnostic system test (OBD2) on vehicles model year 1996 and newer.

Should hold up fine depending on what gas you use, flex fuel or not, and etc. FX350 and up is recommended for this turbo kit.
