    Hi everyone i am new to the forum and have just got myself a 330cd 04 with 60,000 miles, i have an aggressive map on it (it was mapped before this map but is a lot faster now) haven’t had it on a dyno yet so don’t know the figures.

    Soon after the map i started to get a rumble from my flywheel
    I am looking for a performance replacement part. I have some queries and was wondering if anyone on here can help me:

    1. With a single mass flywheel will it be unbearable around town?
    2. Which quality flywheels do you guys recommend, how much and where from? (Don’t want a cheap one that will need replacing after couple days as I drive the car pretty fast pretty often)
    3. If i get a single mass flywheel will i need to upgrade my clutch?
    4. Will putting a single mass flywheel damage other components along my drivetrain?
    Any advice would be appreciated Alex

    Hi Alex,I have just joined this site my self, so i am new to this forum, I have two e36 convertible both autos, thats why I am on this site.But in winter I run a Rover 75 cdi with the BMW engine fitted and this has the dual mass flywheel fitted.87K on the clock and has just started to rattle when I switch off the engine....Had a word with lots of people and asked the cost to replace.The dual mass fly wheel can be purchased for £425. Clutch pack around £100 and release bearing pack another £115. the installation cost is about 6 hours at say £40/ hour. so I checked whether or not I could just put in a standard single flywheel and what the difference in price and after alot of searching found that they are not available for this engine....I think that the dual mass flywheel is much kinder to the gearbox and drive train with diesel engine so if you like the car I would stick with the original design and run it till it.packs all to gether, then fork out £900 for the repair.....All the prices are available on google. just type in dual mass flywheel,I think LuK is a value flywheel .hope you have some luck......Alex... Stagman8 I did run Stag clasic

    cheers for the advice do you know of any quality aftermarket dual mass flywheels? i have searched the internet and cannot find any, and i dont want to replace the wheel with a standard one just for it to break again within a few days, as the flywheel went on the 1st day of the map within 50 miles. and i need something that wont give way half way round a track, as i take the car regulary to the track.

    im not sure about the power but i reckon about 260-270 as it is a tiny bit faster than a mk4 r32. i am thinking of getting it dynod but want to get a intercooler and flywheel before i do

    I don't think anyone makes single mass flywheels for these vehicles, good luck in your search though and post up your progress.
