The problem with the engine stall is the following; 6-cylinder engines don't need a heavy flywheel because of the more mass in the pistons etc. (in according to 4-cylinder). That's the point and there is no other way for a better idle then install a heavier one. A higher idle rpm is also a solution, but I don't know how to do that.
The 'ticking noise'; comes that sound at an interval of 2-3 seconds (in idle)? The same thing I have, but it won't bother me....... Than the shifting problem; Are you sure the M3 shifter is making the same outcomes? I guess you didn't a M3 gearbox swap..........
I can imagine the fun you have, no more slip in the clutch, but on the road with the wheels Keep us updated when you know more about these issues!

Above explaination is good enough.
I will put it in simple terms.
Light weight flywheel dosen't fly with Low torque car. M3 Flywheel in a low torque 4 banger isn't go to help you much.

Well, no offense taken, I am not going to argue and start 3 pages long thread. But, In my experience, lighter flywheel on a low torque cars, drop the revs when up shifting. So, it is not really recommended. It is not fun, when you up shift to 3rd and your car bogs down to 500 RPM.

I don't know anything about the flywheel problem but I do know about the "ticking" noise. It is infact your pilot bearing! I have the exact same problem and am getting it fixed this week. If the noise is still there, it is not "breaking in" it needs to be replaced. I had a m3 clutch with a lightweight flywheel added to my 318i when I did the engine conversion a few months back and this "ticking" noise was there since. I took it back to the people who did the swap for me and was told that it is "breaking in". Now it has been three months after the swap and still the noise is there, so they asked for me to bring it back and they will fix the issue because they think they pilot bearing is broken!?
I'm not an expert but I don't think that since you have a 4 banger has anything to do with the clutch problem your having....

No problem! I am taking it in this week so I will find for sure. Will keep you posted. As for you getting a new pilot bearing put in, so did I!!!! They charged me for a new one and gave me ALL the old parts. Even though they put in a new bearing I still had the clicking noise.

Hey sorry for the delay...had to re-schedule my appointment for this fix. The car is in the shop today and will be advised of the outcome. I will keep you posted with what and how the problem was resolved.
