Wheather I go with the SMF or keep the stock flywheel, I do plan on doing the clutch and almost everything else on this car myself, with the exception of the timing belt, because when I saw the belt routing I almost cried lol.
I would not do the clutch if I didn't have access to a lift, and yes I am very lucky I have that now that I don't work on cars for a living anymore.
I just came up with a perfect example of how to reproduce the symptom on my way home from work. Accelerate hard in 2nd gear(getting to at least 2500 rpm) and let off the gas pedal quickly. The front end drops from the drop in torque, then immediately after that I felt a slight clunk and it happens all the time, but I have just gotten used to it.
I thought "huh it feels like my engine is bouncing off springs when changing from accel to decel"
Well, it is on springs, the springs in the DMF.
