Installation Time: Weekend
February 23, 2019
I purchased this for my pony and received it a few days ago. I just installed it today. I own a 2014 3.7L v6 Mustang. This flywheel replaces my old piece of junk dual mass flywheel. I used a stock clutch disc and pressure plate for my application. That being, just driving on the freeway and the road, only beating on it every once in a while. I bought this particular flywheel for the other reason I can re-surface it and save some money later on down the road when my clutch has to be replaced again.
If you are sticking with a stock clutch, let me first tell you, you will need to stick with the stock pressure plate bolts. This flywheel will not line up with any dowel pins on a stock clutch. You will need to line up the pressure plate with the holes and place a mark before installing this. The factory manual calls for 35ft lbs of torque on the pressure plate bolts and then extra 60 degree turn. That translates into about 54 lbs ft total. So make sure You go in a star pattern to 35 ft lbs and then go up to 54 lbs ft afterwards.
As far as the Flywheel bolts, I found these to be the best price and option - https://www.americanmuscle.com/ford-performance-flywheel-bolt-kit-1517-gt.html
Yes, I know it says 15-17 GT but they work great in the 14 v6. Make sure to torque these to 60 ft lbs in a star pattern.
If you are going to use the matching clutch be sure to purchase the dowel pin and pressure plate bolt kit found here. https://www.americanmuscle.com/frpp-pressureplate-bolt-kit-8698.html
I did not use any spacers for my application. I noticed my clutch engagement is about the same as before. The only difference is my clutch pedal appears to be more stiff than before, which is okay as I like a more aggressive feel.
Overall - If you are looking to replace your dual mass flywheel, This is your best option. Hope this helps out a few of you guys looking for bolts.
