If it's resurfaced right, there is absolutely nothing wrong with re-using your old flywheel.

If you want to go new be conscious of weight reduction. On a higher mileage vehicle suddenly changing your rotational force CAN produce unpredictable side effects.

If it's part of a number of changes that will include a tune afterwards, that's different.

Fwiw, I have never, in my life, changed the flywheel. Now my newest car has a light flywheel already in it, I'm not going to change it when it comes time for a clutch. Just make it flat again, new bearings and keep on going.

That's my opinion anyway. I helped one kid do a bunch of changes including a very light flywheel, and from then on he had difficulty starting his engine, he ended up putting the old one back.
