Question fidanza flywheel noise

I was wondering if any one out there with the fidanza flywheel has raised there idle? Mine stops making noise when its warmming up from a cold start it rpms are at 1100. If raised what would be the the ill effects from doing so ???? Also why does it make noise when in in idle and thern when i push the clutch down the nois stops could the clutch be lightly touching the flywheel??? thanks for any help.

Pressing the clutch will rid the noise.

Changing your idle is fine, no side effects.

Not to thread jack, but i just made the switch to fidanza and CM Stg 1 clutch, and chatter for me at idle doesnt bother me, but to those of you that have made the switch over to the solid fidanza peice, does your chattter increase with rpm's, and if not, whats wrong with my car, I just got it back and I want to make sure its ok before I drive it anymore. Mine will increase in both nuetral and in gear, It gets really loud around 3k...

Just got my car back, Stage 1 CM, fidanza 12.1lb fly.. I hear absolutly no chatter whatsoever, but i can tell its a totally different setup when shifting 1 to 2, grabs like mad, 2-3 grabs pretty nice.. all in all i love it :) No noises that would be expected.

The car stock had no chatter either, at idle the car is so quiet :) Yes, new clutch and flywheel is like a new car. Do the counterweight removal on the shifter and you'll really feel like you got a new car

This seems to be a fairly common complaint amongst fidanze clutches. I think it would be safe to assume your car is fine Joker2.0
