New Flywheel question

I'm installing a 03 Aviator engine in my Mach 1 and along with that swap I'll need to buy a new flywheel and clutch kit. Does it really matter if I buy a 6-bolt 10.5 or 11 inch flywheel? It seems like the 10.5" are less expensive and so are the clutch kits. This engine will be running a Eaton swap if that makes a difference. Thanks!

Re: New Flywheel question

Ford went to 11" because they needed more surface area to handle the increased power over previous models.

Re: New Flywheel question

I guess HP doesn't come cheap. I'll keep looking for a good deal on 11". Thanks guys.
