I didn't purchase the items - they were included on the engine when I had it made for me.

Not certain about lube for torquing - Manual does not specify.  No tips, as I've not done the process.

I generally put light oil on bits I torque, but that might not be the best practice.

There is quite a bit of information on the internet.  I googled "torquing bolts" and found all kinds of information.  Seems lubrication is important especially in conditions involving vibration and I would put the flywheel in that category.  After watching the Horsepower TV show I am going to be using a torquing lubricant.

Not home yet, but it looks like about 3/8 inch has been removed from the back side.
The most interesting part is that this flywheel does not have a ring gear that has been shrunk on and pinned.  This one has the teeth ground into the flywheel.  Does anybody have any knowledge fo this.? My impression has been that all rings were shrunk in place.
Thanks,
TFW
PS.
So now I am a bit worried.  Not sure if I bought a great flywheel, or a flywheel for another car.  I got to thinking and I haven't seen any post about a fixed (ground into the flywheel) ring gear.
I checked on google and couldn't find anything at all.  The part numbers on the flywheel are DA 21785 and 5F3N,  Both are cast.
Does anybody have a loose flywheel sitting around that they could check the numbers on it and compare.  I don't want to remove the transmission, just to find out I have the wrong flywheel.
Thansk again,
TFW

I still don't have an answer for wet or dry when it comes to torque on the flywheel bolts.  Anybody have an answer?
Here is the address for the Horse Power show on ARP Ultra Torque:
