1985 911 Carrera Flywheel Replacement


Vehicle Information: Model: 911 Turbo-look ; Year: 1985; Body Type: Coupe; Engine (type, size, modifications): 3.2 flat six cylinder, totally stock; Total Mileage: 115,700;

My 911 will soon be getting a transmission rebuild and a clutch replacement. The car has 115,700 miles with the original clutch. I think the possibility of needing a new flywheel is very real. If replacement is necessary, I would like to upgrade to a lighter, better flywheel for better throttle response and longivity without any side affects, if any are naturally caused by such a change. The car is used primarilly on the street with the occasional back road jaunt. My question: Is such an upgrade practical and would it make the car more fun to drive? Or would it be better to just stay with the stock flywheel? The car is driven approx. 3,000 miles a year so this will be a one time deal assuming it stays trouble free, which I think it will (it's a Porsche). Would you do this upgrade on your car under similar usage?
