some people dont care about the extra noise, for me i like my vette quiet except for the exhaust sound
Do you know the aluminum makes more noise from experience?
If you had a bad throw out bearing yes other wise I can't see how aluminum would cause more noise at idle or any other speed. I'm guessing sitting at idle with the trans in neutral.
Aluminum flywheels have sintered steel inserts for the clutch plate to bare on.
Maybe the intermediate plate on SOME twin discs rattle when you press in the clutch and it unloads.
I havn't noticed any extra noise but can't tell because I have lg pro headers off road x pipe and cat back...
