Nope, it's stock type or aftermarket solid, including the lightweight types.

Moved this down to SVT Performance where there's more info..

You can opt for a solid steel flywheel instead of aluminum last I checked.

I'd stick w/ the d/m as it makes it easier to shift, easier on the trans, easier in traffic as the d/m has some give vs the one piece flywheel versions.

The solid flywheel should come with a sprung disc to help take the shock where the DM kit has a solid clutch disc. Really either doesn't matter if you drop clutch at every take off lol

Yea there are springs in the pressure plate, the d/m flywheel works better for absorbing(damping) the shocks. Yea you could dump the clutch, how long is the getrag doing to hold up doing that? If it was that simple, Why would Ford spend the difference w/ a d/m setup?
