Any reason to not just replace with stock?

Yes. Just $$$. Going broke. Will be spending nearly $1800 on a friggin' clutch change by the end of this...

$150 - tow to well-known shop in SoCal
$850 - labor on clutch change + flywheel resurface + fluids (+f/r diffy)
$300 - new clutch
= $1300 for first try

Flywheel shakes bad. Now I have to spend...
$275 - shop price to reinstall new flywheel
$200 - ACT Streetlite (14.4lbs- I have coupon to RSD)
=$1775 total

If I had an extra $175 to spend on a stock flywheel, maybe I would. I'd had a lighten one before in a different car and liked it.

Ah so at least you're used to a lighter one. No worries then.

I have an 07 sti. Clutch was fine but had a destroyed ringland. Had the flywheel machined and upgraded to an exedy stage 1. I live in metro Atlanta GA. Some of the worst traffic on the planet. I dont go above 2nd gear for the first 30 minutes of my commute. Vibrations for the first 200 miles which per the forum is normal for the exedy stage 1. 15000 miles in clutch feels fine. No vibrations or issues. This is an old thread but I felt it was important to post my experience. I cant understand why the sti flywheel would be "unmachinable" as long as both surfaces are machined equal amounts. Of course the stealership would reccomend the more expensive option. I personally think it is unnecessary in most situations. My experience has justified that assumption. I will report back if the clutch or flywheel fail prematurely.

Just replaced the OEM Flywheel on my 2006 STI. It was $94 cheaper than any aftermarket or lightened flywheel available.

Just to add another experience, I resurfaced my flywheel when replacing clutch and 5k miles later still getting really bad shuddering on takeoff and down shifting (if not rev matched). Seems to be better when cold and get worse during the drive and in stop and go traffic. Would definitely have bought a new flywheel if I had known.
