I think you are mistaking drivability and clutch noise with torsional harmonics. These engines are not particularly well balanced internally, which is why Porsche uses such a heavy two piece flywheel, the elastomer section absorbs those harmonics. Without the dual mass, they are left to their own devices.

We have seen a couple of these failures, Jake has an entire section of his site devoted to them. Porsche even released a TSB about not using single mass flywheels on these engine's, regardless of their weight.

Just food for thought.................
