    Need help finding dmfw

    The only place I can find is it at the dealer or tisher and there is no way i am spending 1000 on it. Does anyone know where I can get one cheaper or if anyone has a used one. I need ASAP. Thanks guys

    Tischer is the cheapest if you need a dual mass...it sucks I know...why not try resurfacing your stock dmfw? Is it really that badly damaged?

    It's really in bad shape. I had it looked at already and they didn't recommend it. I'm trying to find someone who is doing a lwfw upgrade.

    I assume you are changing your clutch, why not just get the lwfw... most clutch kits should have the option. I will probably be in this position fairly soon.

    Josh i have a lwfw in already i dont like it. I will be selling it for really cheap once it comes out. They even sell inserts for it so it can be changed.

    I dont think you can resurface a dual mass flywheel.. I had one on my GTI and they couldn't do it...

    It can be done by the right shop. They need the tools to clamp the face, not the backside to keep it from twisting under the lathe.

    Can anyone explain to me why you would want to have a flywheel that is double the weight of an original flywheel.
    I understand having a lighter one, for quicker revving and quicker throttle responce, but why would you want more weight than a stock flywheel?

    I have no clue what any of this means, but heavier flywheel = more rotational mass if i'm not mistaken, so more kinetic energy?

    im surprised you dont get this. you're usually spot on david. the OEM flywheel is a dual mass fly. the upgrade is a light weight fly usually with matching aftermarket clutch. the OP has the lwfw and is worried his tranny/driveline is having problems because of it. he is now looking for a used dual mass because buying one from the dealer is outrageously expensive.

    Ah, I see.
    I thought double mass meant double weight compared to stock.
    Didn't know he was looking for OEM spec flywheel.

    Haha if I wasn't getting engaged I'd just buy one. But these damn rings cost a fortune. So for once in my life I'm trying to watch. I found a new one for 750 and a used one for 500.
