Dual mass flywheel - 2007 Cayman S

Hello to all,
 
I'm thinking of replacing my stock factory fitted dual mass flywheel to a single (lightened) mass one. Any suggestions from where to buy one? Any experiences or positive feedback on this particular upgrade?
 
Regards,
 
Paul

    We tend to fit the lightweight flywheel supplied by Design911.  The engine Will feel a lot more zippy.  The downside is that you get a chatter - normally at 3k rpm under load - normally in gears 3 and 4.  The noise seems to vary - but we have fitted a couple to 3.4s Caymans.

    Paul,
     
    There was a thread on this topic last year which could be useful if you want to contact the original poster to see how he got on.:

    I'm not a great fan of DMFs myself - I'm sure that they're not essential on non-diesel multi-cylinder engines - but manufacturers routinely seem to fit them these days, primarily to address low speed gear rattle. I'm sure that if you fit a lightweight flywheel you'll get better throttle response but possibly at the expense of some low-speed driveability and transmission rattle (remember that the powertrain mounts have been optimised for the DMF fitment).

    Thanks C2dweller I will have a look at it....is the chatter loud? I mean do you think it will annoy the driver? I don't intend to use my Cayman on track but I dont really like the idea of installing another DMF!
