is it true that you can't resurface a flywheel on the ls1 or any lsx motor? Also, how pertinent is it to change the flywheel assuming there doesn't seem to be any damage or hot spots? Thanks

Good question. I'm interested in knowing this also even though I already have my clutch/flywheel.
BTW - Are you just changing the clutch b/c you are pulling the trans?
Did you pick a clutch out yet?

Yeah I figured its prob the orig clutch with 140k on it. I picked up new spec stage 2 for 170 on ebay and I found a flywheel for 170 too. Why not change it if I'm droppings the trans. How hard is the clutch change anyways? I've been doing some research, seems doable.

I had mine done while I had my transmission rebuild by RPM, so I didn't physically do it as the place that I took my car to did the install for free being the trans was already out.
I think once you have the trans out it's not that bad at all. I got the Spec 3+. I like the feel of it. Very streetable and almost feels stock, a little firmer, which I like.

I can't wait to replace those syncros, I hate that sound when I slam it in second. Dropping the trans to bring it in doesn't seem all that bad either. Anyone else got anything?

I pulled my tranny in the driveway by myself its not bad at all. You gata pull the tranny off the bell housing first then pull the bell housing off the block and if replacing the slave disconnect the hydralic line first, I used an A/C disconnect tool popped right off

I kept both my slave and master stock. My clutch disengages close to the floor and I don't have any issues. I also only have 15,700 miles on my car though. Since you have a good amount of miles, I'd also suggest changing what the other fellow said. Much easier to do it now with the trans out then wait a while just for it to go out and you to have to pull the trans again.

So are the guys at speed inc the only ones who know it can't be resurfaced?
