Its not the engagement of the clutch (I assume this is the gear lash you are referring to) you should be concerned with.

The dual-mass flywheel is the only balancing device these engines utilize. With out removing the crankshaft and having it sent to a specialty machine shop to be balanced, you risk the crank assembly vibrating apart at the weakest point (a journal and webbing joint).

That being said, these engines rev SOOO FAST with aluminum flywheels. I think you will enjoy the engine response a lot.
