Never had to do that either. I have done clutch jobs in multiple Vehicles never a issue. Had a Nissan Maxima with blue spots all over it $700 just for the flywheel. The Guy was not going to pay for it did the job worked fine no issues no complaints. Sometimes you just have to try things. Flywheels sometimes need to be replaced but not every time that depends on the circumstance.

I'd for sure show the customer & mention to him & written & have him sign the r/o that there's no warranty on something like that. Yea there are going to be times that you'd get lucky. Another variable is how the vehicle is driven as you'll never know. Kinda similar to pad slaps vs swapping rotors or turning them.....

Ford parts to do the clutch, flywheel and slave for an SE 5 speed were around $500 if I recall. I would assume an ST set would be more expensive because it is a high performance vehicle
You could look into aftermarket single mass setups for the car and see what they price at. Single mass flywheels are at least serviceable down the road.

For $3k, I would be upgrading to a beefier clutch and doing an LSD at the same time. Call some transmission specific shops and ask for quotes. Spec stage 2 that can handle full bolt on e30 tq (will work with oem fly) and the M Factory LSD

Probably around $1500 for parts and another $1500 for labor

MFactory Competition Products - Performance Driveline Components


I daily the spec stage 3+, lightweight fly, and Wavetrac LSD; no complaints. My wife still drives the car without issue
