If you have the money you can get a new one, aluminum being recommended. If you only have about $45 handy though, just get it resurfaced. Hot spots will be removed when it is machined. Cracks are rare and normally only appear after severe abuse.

when I replaced my clutch with the stage 2, I went ahead and changed the flywheel to a spec aluminum one. But I say if yours is fine and your not going to do much to the car might as well just keep what you have

how do you like the aluminum flywheel?
also i plan on supercharging it in the spring so i don't know if that makes a difference in what flywheel to get?

It's not needed. It's just a added item. The aluminum will free up a little bit of hp through rotational mass. It's not a necessity.

If you're supercharging it, make sure you get a clutch that you KNOW will handle the power output.

Yeh fidanza makes a good product, that's deff wat I'ma get and I'll prob go with the aluminum. It cost more but I'd have spend the extra cash and get the better product, even it means bein broke for a while ha

I'm happy with mine. I did the 04 engine, clutch and flywheel all at the same time, So I of course couldn't tell what hp or anything I gained..But Its a great thing to do while your changing the clutch for sure.

The s/c can handle the stock flywheel, so that's not going to make a difference it witch flywheel you choose.
