You can't cut the stock flywheel, it's a dual mass :/

A lighter flywheel will definitely make a difference, especially in 1st gear, but I've red (here) that it may cause rattling in the gearbox at idle.

Test the dual mass FW to see if its still within spec. If so, then re-use. If not, it has to be replaced.
