    Flywheel Replacement (single vs. dual-mass) Thoughts

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    It seems that the original dual-mass flywheel in my 05.5 S4 has taken a dump on me and needs to be replaced. Dealer is quoting around 2k for labor and I'll be providing the parts to cut costs. Car is more of a daily driver, so performance parts aren't necessary and I would be interested in switching to a single-mass flywheel, only if NVH wouldn't be significantly increased. Any advice/opinions/thoughts on going single-mass vs. dual-mass for the flywheel, and if any brands (i.e. Luk, Brute Force, JHM, ACT, etc.) seem to be better quality than others, would be a huge help and much appreciated!

    The dual mass is going to help absorb hard shifting, but they're also prone to failure due to moving parts. JHM has 2 different LWFWs, they have replaceable friction liners and seem to work just fine. Assuming you have a B7 by your name you wouldn't need to worry about buying a non-OEM clutch.
