South Africa Dual mass flywheel

Hi guys ,
I am sitting with an issue with my sons 2007 cooper s turbo motor .
It broke part of the skirt on No 4 cylinder and now I am rebuilding it and fitting up rated wossner pistons and rings , all this even though it's only got 63000 km's on the clock .

The issue I have is with the dual mass clutch as well as with the engine , the clutch needs to be changed and the price is horrendous , so I want to have a single aluminium flywheel manufactured , but need to know if it can be fitted with a standard clutch plate and pressure plate and if so any recommendations ?

Can a clutch from the supercharged version be made to fit ? I really don't want to pay $1200 for a clutch conversion kit given all the expense I already have on this low km engine .

Any ideas or advice welcome ,

john

If you used an aluminium flywheel it would be so light I would think as to give you a lousy tickover and may even stall all the time? it would be ok for quick rev pick up and high revs maybe like racing, but I would think it would be terrible for normal use.
Also aluminium wouldnt give such a durable friction surface as steel would so will wear away quicker.
Also if you substitute the dual mass flywheel for a single one you would find the engine feels very rough as the cushioning and smoothing out effect the dual mass flywheel gives wouldnt be present, it might seem like youve got a tractor engine in it.
Thats my thoughts on it anyway, others may have a differing opinion.
